All right, let's get started.
Our courses are available to everyone who meets our entrance requirements. All our courses require comprehensive study and self-discipline. Our Seminary is an online
institution offering distance learning to students in many nations around the world.

Our mission at Footsteps of Jesus and Bible Academy is to raise up leaders who will minister to all nations. Our programs have the highest curriculum standards within the
framework of Spirit-anointed authority. We prepare Christian leaders for Christian service.

All degrees at The Seminary are
earned degrees. This is achieved by mandatory courses work that must be completed.

Purpose
To each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:

“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”

He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe. So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the
evangelists, the pastors and teachers,  to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the
knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in
their deceitful scheming.  Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the
whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.~
Ephesians 4

Our Accreditation is done by  a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program. The
accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive self-study
and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation

We prepare our students for secular work or denominational service. We will seek to provide a sound theological standing from which our students may fulfill their divine
purpose and calling.

Disclaimer Statement
Our courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations. Various regionally or nationally accredited Christian
Universities, colleges and seminaries throughout the world may accept  credits and degrees from FoJSBC.

    her own pace.
