INSTE is short for "Institute of Theology by Extension." It is Bible College at home for those who are interested in going deeper in their study of God's Word, Discipleship and Christian Leadership.

INSTE is broken down into two levels. Level one is 4 semesters (2 years) and includes Doctrine, Discipleship, Old Testament and New Testament surveys. Level two is 6 additional semesters (3 years) and covers a wide range of studies which relate to Christian leadership and church ministry. Completion of both levels one and two allows the student to apply for ministry credentials with Open Bible Churches.

Applications are taken prior to each semester. Please contact the church for information about class options and schedules.
