Lakeside Institute of Theology

The mission of Lakeside Institute of Theology is to equip Christians to grow as disciples of Christ, thereby equipping them to also disciple others. The guiding verse of the ministry is to “equip the saints for the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ . . .” (Ephesians 4:12).  

The Institute offers courses in these two curriculum modules:

Biblical (examples: Old Testament Survey, New Testament Survey, Biblical Interpretation, etc.)

Topical (examples: Biblical History, How to Study the Bible, Comparative Religions, etc.)

The structure of this ministry includes two 6-week courses offered in the Fall and Spring semesters, with simple completion assignments required in each course. Upon completion of six 6-week courses, a certificate will be offered in one of the following areas:

               Teaching/Leadership     Disciple-making       Bible Study      Missions      Theology
