Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an order to the courses?

Yes, there is an order for the courses. The curriculum has been laid out in such a way that the courses build on each other. This is the order in which you study the courses:


Does Agape Bible Studies Online offer a degree?

No. This curriculum is designed as a practical study. It is to give you a solid foundation in basic Bible doctrine. The courses teach all you need to know to be saved from sin and how to live for Christ in this world. When you have completed our curriculum, we will link you to a website where you can enroll and earn a Bible degree at almost no cost.

Will you provide a certificate when I have completed the curriculum?

We provide a downloadable certificate for each course you complete, six certificates total if you complete the entire curriculum.

Will I need a Bible?

No. Bible verses are included in the PDF version of the course, and we recommend you print a hard copy of each course for study and reference. However, as you study the courses by section, you can click on any scriptures given, select the Bible version you prefer and click on it. We recommend the American Standard Version or the New King James Version.

How long do I have to complete this curriculum?

We do not set a time limit. You work at your own pace. However, the material taught is the most important you will ever study because this knowledge will give you a blessed life here on earth and for eternity if you obey and remain faithful to God.

Make a commitment to a definite study schedule:

  • Study daily, if at all possible.
  • Select a time and a place to study where it is quiet and you will not be interrupted. Try to do this at the same time each day. A daily routine will keep you on track.
  • Don’t just learn facts. Think and meditate on the teaching. Apply the teaching to your life each day.
  • Resolve to obey God. Matthew 22:37 tells us that the greatest commandment is to love God with all our being.
    How do we love God? Jesus tells us how to love God in John 14:15, 23. We love God by obeying what He teaches us in the Bible. Note the importance of this knowledge in Matthew 7:21-23 where Jesus says, Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven. We added the underlined emphasis on doing!

  • Why have you named your site Agape? What is agape?

    Agape is the Greek word for divine love. It is how God loves us. It can be defined as working to the greatest good of the one receiving your love. Agape is defined in more depth in the supplemental study to Course No. 2, The Bible is Godís Truth. This supplemental study is entitled The Key to Heaven. You cannot get to heaven without agape.

    What is the cost of the Agape Bible Studies Online courses?

    We charge nothing. The studies are absolutely free. All those involved in providing this curriculum are Christians who joyfully donate their time and effort to teaching others about Christ. We agape you!

    Only those who live in America can receive these courses through the postal system. We can provide you with email addresses which offer postal studies.

    What religious denomination are you?

    We are non-denominational. We follow the Bible only. As the Bereans in Acts 17:11, the Bible is our only standard because it is from God. Read 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
