The Work of ICOTB
International College of the Bible is a tuition-free distance learning school offering a college-level study program. It is for dedicated Christians who want to gain a deeper understanding of God's Word but simply cannot reach a classroom.
ICOTB offers 3 levels of study -
- Associate of Arts in Bible
- Batchelor of Arts in Bible
- Master of Arts in Bible
If you are interested in pursuing one of these programs then complete the enrollment form you will find under "Enrollment" on the main menu. However, please understand that our staff is small so enrollment is selective.
International College of the Bible is a part of the work of International Bible Teaching Ministries which offers an online study open to all. You can enroll in this free study by following the instructions found on the IBTM site here.
