Philosophy of Education
Empowerment Bible University bases its Philosophy of Education on the theological certainty that the one true triune God has revealed himself to mankind in the Christian scriptures. This God of the Bible has many attributes, and several of these are foundational for education. God is a God of truth in that his knowledge eternally conforms to his being. Truth for his creatures is therefore that which an expression of the mind of God is. Since all truth is sourced in the nature and mind of God, truth is absolute, eternal, and unchangeable because God Himself is immutable.
God has revealed knowledge that is foundational for all of life and eternity in the Bible, and thus Scripture is the center and core of all learning at Empowerment Bible University. Because God’s Word is truth, we believe that the content of Scripture must be enunciated clearly and authoritatively. All courses, including theology, church ministries, and counseling are understood and taught in relation to the infallible Word of God.
Theological education is not simply a transfer of biblical knowledge, but an ongoing transformation of the whole person. Empowerment Bible University intentionally and strategically endeavors to shape Christian intellect, character, and spiritual awareness according to the model of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We prayerfully strive to equip students to communicate and to apply the Christian faith throughout their daily lives. To express our educational philosophy to our students, Empowerment Bible University offers courses in three main areas:
Exegetical (Biblical) Theology composed of courses in Old Testament, Hebrew, New Testament, and Greek;
Pastoral Theology composed of courses in Practical Theology, Missions and Evangelism, and Biblical Counseling.
Theology composed of courses in Systematic Theology and Historical Theology; and Pastoral Theology, composed of courses in Practical Theology, Missions and Evangelism, and Biblical Counseling
