Christ Revealed Bible Institute is, at the present, an online-only Bible School set at the junior through graduate college levels. Although not accredited, our courses are designed to meet typical college-level criteria for learning in an online environment. We offer a full two-year program of Biblical Studies. Fellowship forums are also a part of Christ Revealed Bible Institute [CRBI].
CRBI is hosted on a Moodle platform at the following link: http://ChristRevealedBible.institute; with introductory pages at http://christrevealedbible.institute/site/index.php?page=start>
In order to provide the best service to many, CRBI charges a minimal tuition cost. Enrollment includes access to all course materials, full inclusion in course forums and discussions, minimal commenting by course instructors and guides, and grading of those assignments that allow for automatic Moodle grading. Staff responses will then include full instructional comments, grading of all work, a final course grade with a certificate of course completion, as well as access to transcripts and a document attesting to the college-level validity of the course requirements.
"Credits" at CRBI are unaccredited, however, and CRBI makes no warranty or representation that these credits will be recognized or accepted by any other educational institution.
Jesus said, “Learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart.” For that reason, we have positioned those who are engaged with the courses at CRBI as learners, with ourselves included. We together are engaged with eternal life, that is, knowing the Father and knowing Jesus-Sent. Although the mind is certainly engaged with this learning, the heart and spirit more so. The hope of these courses is to exercise us who are learning to know the Father in the development of our hearts, our spirits, and our minds, to contain and to release God Almighty.
The educational philosophy employed at CRBI is primarily cognitive and social constructivism. All truth is personal. Universal truth is never some static construct, but always and only the Person of the Lord Jesus. Constructivism contains three elements, that knowledge is personally constructed inside an individual learner, that all learning experiences must be authentic, and that learning takes place in a social environment.
“Learn of Me,” then, comes into each individual believer as an ongoing and intimate personal relationship. The knowledge that is eternal life is a construction of intimate communion between the learner and the Father through the Person of the Lord Jesus. Authentic learning means that all ideas presented in a course or lesson become life only as the learner engages directly with the Father concerning that word. Cognitive for us means primarily that each learner must engage with the Word God speaks personally and individually. Social means that the courses at CRBI are designed to be taken with and as a fellowship of believers, with much discussion and sharing of Christ.
Prospective Bible Institute Members:
All believers in Jesus belong to Him alone. He is Lord; He works all things by the counsel of His own will; and He does all things well. The Lord Jesus may choose to use a course at CRBI to show Himself to an individual believer, or not – the choice is entirely His and without reference to us whatsoever. If the Lord Jesus through you chooses to walk with us in this fellowship of Christ, then we are simply excited, and if He does not, then we bless you with all of our hearts, knowing that He knows exactly what He is doing through you.
Most believers in Jesus carry a lot of theological baggage, a lot of ideas about God, a lot of concepts that God does not say. Any new member of CRBI must expect to have many if not most of those ideas shattered, big time.
One idea ONLY will remain. – Jesus lives in my heart.
If we can be reduced down to that one thing, Jesus lives in my heart, only then can God begin to show us what He really means by what He says.
Thus who enroll in CRBI must be willing for many popular ideas concerning heaven, hell, God, man, salvation, human history, and this world to be shattered. For us, the “normal” Christian pose is to be silent before the Almighty concerning ourselves and to receive all that He actually says with the same faith exhibited by Mary. Those who enter with wide open Bibles and wide open hearts will find much upon which to feed. Those who already “know” what everything is all about will likely find nothing much of interest at CRBI.
The members of CRBI share one common attribute – we WANT to be found inside of Jesus and He inside of us as He is revealed in His glory. Although we enjoy all the good things God has given us, we don’t much want anything else. Yet we also share this, inside of that desire, we are completely weak. We are utterly unable to “produce” what we want, yet we will not be turned aside.
In selecting applicants for enrollment at CRBI, we are looking for a response to the following items.
- I desire to know the Lord Jesus above all and to learn of Him with fellow believers.
- I understand that I will hear and read things I may never have considered before, but I am willing to take everything before the Lord with my heart and Bible wide open.
- I have read the website terms and conditions, and I agree to follow them. - I also agree to follow all forum and assignment guidelines.
