OUR PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

Learn the Truth

To learn and understand the truth is one of the fundamental aspects of the Christian faith and theological education helps us to do that by building on the foundation of the Word of God.

Build Relevant Skills

Based on the truth of the Word of God, theological education also helps in developing skills that enable us to reach out and influence our communities, churches and the world at large.

Inculcate Christ-like Attitude

The ultimate aim of theological education, as of all aspects of this Christian journey, is to know Christ and to inculcate a Christ-like attitude while encouraging and enabling others to do the same.

The Global classroom Master of Divinity at Filadelfia Bible College is meant to be an online version of the residential Master of Divinity course with an additional feature of a specialised course of your interest. This Mdiv program is worth 90 credits (30 courses). As an online MDiv student, you will take New Testament, Old Testament, and Theology survey courses, Greek and Hebrew language and exegesis courses, and a mixture of Christian History, Preaching, Mission and Ministry courses to round out a core of 18 courses that will prepare you for a variety of ministry positions. For the remaining 12 open elective courses you can choose from a well-rounded collection which will give you additional training for leadership, pastoral care, Christian formation, and evangelism.
 
The Global classroom MDiv has no residential component, but it closely provides the experience of the classroom from the comfort of your home. The classes will still be rigorous, which is why online MDiv may take four years instead of three, with 6-7 course each semester instead of the 9-10 typical for students in a residential program.

A consistent high-speed internet facility is advisable. The Global classroom online programme requires that you spend about 15 hours each week online per class for video lectures, readings, writing, and discussions. Additionally, consider your ability to access books. While some books are available online, some still need to be purchased through suppliers. You can refer to your course syllabi to see the list of required readings and your faculty can help you determine if your books can be accessed through the Filadelfia Library system/EBSCO.

Global Classroom is committed to a holistic learning environment through targeted opportunities for ministry experience with your local church community.

Spiritual formation is also an important aspect of theological education and as such, mentoring on the lines of the Biblical pattern will be integrated into every course.

The next batch of Global Classroom starts in the first week of June and applications close by 30th of May (2021). Apply now to beat the rush!

The fees per course is 1500 rupees and a Master of Divinity program consists of a minimum 30 courses. There is also a one-time technology fees of 750 rupees, which will be collected at the time of first enrolment, and a 3000 rupees graduation fee.

WHAT THEY SAY?

What eminent international mission leaders, theologians and Christian authors say about the ministry of Filadelfia Bible College.

It has been one of the highlights of my life to visit the Filadelfia Bible College campus in Udaipur in 2009, and to participate in the annual convention in Navapur and the College graduation service. It has also been our privilege to work with two of the College faculty members who have completed their significant PhD research on Indian themes in Birmingham. I heartily endorse the work carried on by this College.
ALLAN HEATON ANDERSON
Leading Pentecostal Scholar and Author
It was an important time in my life when after a short term trip to Mexico that I left University studies and went to Moody Bible Institute. I graduated two years later and give thanks. To have a similar college in Rajasthan one of the more needy places in the world comes as a great answer to prayer. I recently ministered there to the students and I thank the Lord for what HE is doing there. I pray for more students to go there and for more people to be raised up to prayer and to give to that great ministry.

The Langham Partnership (founded by John Stott) warmly endorses the ministry of Filadelfia Bible College. The Principal, Dr Finny Philip, is a Langham Scholar whom we have known for years since he studied for his doctorate in the UK, and the College is committed to the same goals as Langham: to see the church of Christ planted and built up in maturity and mission through faithful teaching and preaching of God's word, whether in its classrooms or through the ministry of its hundreds of alumni.
