The purpose of Trinity College of Biblical Studies is to familiarize students with the content and concepts of the Bible, the appropriate methodologies for the interpretation and the application of biblical teaching. Students are encouraged to go on  Holy Land Pilgrimages, Archaeological field trips and are taught to use research tools  which will aide  independent study of biblical texts and topics. For career purposes, the major may be used as a terminal degree, preparing  students for employment in a local church  by achieving a level of biblical literacy that will enable them to be active in  church leadership and teaching ministries.
Students are trained in basic biblical and theological knowledge. They are encouraged to develop skills that enable them to take into account the original linguistic, literary, historical, and cultural contexts of the Bible. Students are thereby enabled to consider critically religious traditions, beliefs, and practice in order to bring them into conformity with biblical revelation and to evaluate all of life and thought from the perspective of biblical principles.
 

The ultimate goal of Theological Studies is to ensure that the churchís proclamation and the individualís life is faithful to Godís revelation of Himself in Scripture. Student's with good theological training will know how to evaluate critically their own personal theological leaning, be aware and respectful of other theological positions, and be able to distinguish those values that are distinctly Christian from those that the secular world espouses

These objectives are attained through the academic processes, Pilgrimages, and Archaeological field trips which enable students to formulate a constructive, personal stance of Christian faith, to become aware of how culture affected biblical revelation  These courses are taken completely online, Holy Land Pilgrimages and Archaeological field trips are planed in advance.  Students fulfilling the undergraduate curriculum will graduate with Bachelor of  Biblical Studies and  receive Ordination.
