Where the Bible is your Teacher ™. Our school is new and not yet accredited. YOU HAVE PRELIMINARY ACCEPTANCE TO THE PROGRAM. Final acceptance to the Biblical Doctrine Certificate program will be instated once approval is given upon the receipt of your first essay.Welcome to Doctrine Theological Seminary online,
The purpose of this program is only for YOUR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL GROWTH and your future ministry. The way this works is very easy. You simply LOOK UP verses by doing a topical search online including KJV (using the King James Version), then add the verses to your Google Doc essay and then provide context with your OWN words and comments. When you complete this essay, you will have Bible verses that you discovered along with your explanation of what you believe – supported by scripture. This will be accessible to you online and you will be able to download and edit it anytime in the future. You need to use the Chrome browser and download Google Docs once you get an email back from us.
Disclaimer: DOCTRINE SEMINARY IS NOT ACCREDITED. At this time, we are NOT offering degree programs such as a Masters of Divinity (M.Div) or Theology (Th.M.). We are offering correct doctrine certification. The purpose is for you to explore the Bible using online searches to find scripture that defines your belief about critical doctrines. It is hoped that you will grow in your faith as God’s Word opens up to you more and more.
FREE PROGRAM FOR THOSE WHO QUALIFY:
When you complete your first course (WHICH IS COMPLETELY FREE TO YOU), you will realize how beneficial this program was and may wish to continue on to complete the “Biblical Doctrine Certification” program. You will write a total of 10 essays. The first one is free. The rest are $99 each but if you are a student who can’t afford the cost AND English is your second language, AND you are not living in a predominately English speaking country, the program is entirely free to you. No cost. You will receive a free online certificate that you can print at your location.
Also, if you can’t afford the program, we have an incentive program for those who do not qualify for the free program for non-English speakers (mentioned above). While you are taking your first free course, for every new person you get to sign up for a free course, you get a 10% reduction on your next course. If you get ten people, that means your next course is 100% free. If you get 5 friends to sign up for a free course, you get a 50% reduction. Each new referral is equivalent to a $10 discount. We hope that helps.
TO GET STARTED with the Incentive Program, just have your friend send us their Gmail address telling us they are interested and what their preferred language is. If they are non-English speakers and meet the requirements above, their course is also free including the entire Biblical Doctrine Certification course! This offer is limited to only that certification.
Once you get the Google Doc link in your email, simply click on the place where you see these symbols [ and ]. Please highlight both symbols and REPLACE them with the information requested. Do this for the entire document and then follow each direction very carefully and thoroughly. You don’t need to overdo it. You only need to write 1,000 words and that includes Bible verses.
You MUST check in once a week to do work or you will be dropped from the program. This means you need to work on your essay at least once a week. You are limited to one month for each essay but some people finish it in just one day. To go on to the next course, your first essay must be approved by seminary staff BEFORE YOU EARN FINAL ACCEPTANCE TO THE Biblical Doctrine Certification program.
PAY AS YOU GO: After you finish the first class, which is free, if you don’t qualify for a scholarship, you will need to pay for the second through tenth courses individually. You need not pay the entire program cost of $990 at once but may wish to make $99 payments as you go along for each new class in the Biblical Doctrine program. You are also able to provide evidence if you need a partial or complete scholarship. You may also use the provided tuition reduction incentive program where your next course fee is reduced by 10% ($10) for each new referral who signs up for their first free class and who gives you credit.
Again, thanks for joining us at Doctrine Seminary. We look forward at seeing your progress in the program. Please remember to complete at least one substantive response in your essay weekly.

HOW TO GET STARTED FOR FREE: (For more information, see detailed steps found below.)
BUT HERE IS THE EASIEST WAY TO ENROLL RIGHT NOW: To get started right away with your FREE application and FREE first class, simply indicate the Biblical Certification program you desire and send your Gmail address (not any email address) to info@DoctrineSeminary.org (THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO CONTINUE AFTER THE FREE FIRST CLASS).

2. Tentative acceptance into any Certification Program is automatic and full acceptance may be granted upon completion of your first substantive class essay (1,000 words or more). Although your first class (supervised essay) in any program is free, should you decide to continue with class two (supervised essay), a $99 fee (or partial or full scholarship) will be required before continuing to class two (supervised essay). You will need to pay in advance as you go for each additional class (supervised essay) for the remaining nine essays. After completing all 10 classes (supervised essays), you will be done with the program. Finally, a one-time graduation (matriculation) fee of $99 at the completion of all 10 essays is required for final processing including transcripts and mailing a beautiful graduation diploma. (Scholarship program graduates will have their diploma emailed to them).
3. This is a Biblical Doctrine Certification Program, not a Master’s degree and is not yet accredited. The program is designed to get you to search the scriptures to find Bible verses to support your views about Critical Bible Doctrines related to your Certificate Program of study. We do not have classes for you to listen to. We do not spoon feed you doctrine. Here, the Bible is your teacher. You use the Internet to look up Bible verses (using the King James Version unless you use a language other than English) to support a particular topic and you develop your doctrinal position based on those scriptures. When you complete the Certification program, you will have 10 Biblical Essays.
4. Once we receive your Gmail address with an indication of what Biblical Certification program you want to take, we will send you a Google Document Template via Gmail to get you started. Remember, you only have tentative acceptance until you complete your first supervised essay and it is approved. You should really enjoy writing these Doctrinal essays! Please carefully follow the explicit instructions within the template. Start by entering your name and location. You will also need to write a few sentences about why you chose that particular Certificate program. Next, very importantly, comes your testimony of how you got saved. Please be completely honest.
5. Your instructor’s time is valuable. After deducting some of your class fee for seminary expenses, they receive a portion of the $99 you are paying in advance. They are qualified in their field and have put many hours into preparing for being your instructor. Please be completely respectful. Please address them by their FIRST NAME (do not use “brother” or “sir” or “Pastor” or “teacher” etc.) in correspondence. Your instructor will send you a short introductory email to initiate contact with you once you begin working on your first essay. They are only being paid a minimal fee in advance for each class by you for their time to guide you along your way as you write. They will be able to see your work as you type your essay and they will be able to make comments and suggestions along the way. Please do not dominate their valuable time. PLEASE LET YOUR INSTRUCTOR KNOW WHEN YOU ARE READY TO HAVE YOUR ESSAY CHECKED.
THE EASIEST WAY TO WRITE YOUR ESSAY: FOLLOW THESE STEPS…
Once you send us your Gmail address and indicate what program you are interested in taking, we send you a pre-formatted Google Docs template with simple instructions. Type your name and location in the place provided.
HERE’S HOW TO DO THE WORK: The way it works is for you to look up Bible verses (in the King James Version) and copy and paste them into your essay (see the end of the essay at the bottom for precise instructions of how to format Bible verses (an example is given). After you paste the passage into your essay, then simply elaborate on the meaning of that scripture passage related to your particular area of study. You should really enjoy prayerfully writing your essay and developing your theological perspective. Let the Bible talk to you and use your understanding of the historical context to explain your understanding of the verse(s) in relation to your Bible topic. There is a word count feature in Google Docs. Bible verses that you copy and paste do count for the 1,000+ word count requirement for each class (supervised substantive essay). As you complete each of the 10 essays, you are completing one of the 10 class requirements for graduation. Once you complete all 10 substantive essays and get approval (as you go along), then you will have completed the program. You will have an outstanding digital portfolio of why you believe and what you believe – supported by scripture – for you to use in preaching or teaching on the subject. You can always add to this document over the years as you find more evidence to support your essays. Remember, this seminary does not allow you to use outside sources or the writings of any other person on any topic you are working on. You must go straight to the scriptures and systematically develop your Doctrinal positions.
HERE ARE SPECIAL HINTS ON HOW TO ENJOY YOUR STUDIES…
THE EASIEST WAY TO COMPLETE YOUR ESSAYS IS TO USE YOUR SMART PHONE. JUST DO A GOOGLE SEARCH ON KING JAMES BIBLE VERSES RELATED TO YOUR TOPIC. THEN JUST COPY AND PASTE THE VERSES INTO YOUR GOOGLE DOC RIGHT ON YOUR SMART PHONE. NOW COMES THE BEST TRICK TO GET THIS DONE QUICKLY AND EASILY. AFTER YOU COPY THE VERSE(S) INTO YOUR DOCUMENT, USE YOUR MICROPHONE FEATURE – LOCATED ON TOP RIGHT OF THE KEY PAD (WHERE YOU WOULD NORMALLY TYPE) AND JUST START TALKING INTO YOUR CELL PHONE. AS YOU TALK, IT AUTOMATICALLY TYPES WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. DON’T WORRY ABOUT TYPOS OR MAKING MISTAKES. CORRECT THOSE LATER. JUST EXPLAIN YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THAT BIBLE VERSE AS IT RELATES TO YOUR TOPIC. THEN GET THE NEXT SCRIPTURE, COPY AND PASTE IT, AND AGAIN USE THE MIC FEATURE TO TALK INTO YOUR CELL PHONE TO EXPLAIN WHAT IT MEANS. KEEP REPEATING THIS PROCESS UNTIL YOU ARE DONE WITH YOUR ESSAY. FINALLY, YOU WILL HAVE TO READ OVER YOUR ESSAY AGAIN AND PROOFREAD IT VERY CAREFULLY (BECAUSE SPEECH TO TEXT ON THE CELL PHONE CAN HAVE TYPOS). THEN NOTIFY YOUR INSTRUCTOR VIA GMAIL WHEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE ESSAY. UPON APPROVAL, YOU MAY PROCEED TO THE NEXT SUBSTANTIVE CLASS AND BEGIN WRITING YOUR NEXT ESSAY. AFTER YOU COMPLETE YOUR FIRST ESSAY (WHICH IS FREE) AND YOU ARE APPROVED TO CONTINUE TO ESSAY (CLASS) TWO, YOU WILL RECEIVE FULL ACCEPTANCE INTO THE PROGRAM UPON PAYMENT IN ADVANCE OF $99 FOR THE NEXT ESSAY. THE TOTAL COST OF THE PROGRAM (UNLESS YOU ARE UNDER PARTIAL OR FULL SCHOLARSHIP) IS NINE PAYMENTS (PAY-AS-YOU-GO) OF $99 FOR EACH CLASS IN ADVANCE (FIRST CLASS IS ALWAYS FREE) AND A ONE TIME $99 GRADUATION FEE AT THE END OF YOUR PROGRAM. (PARTIAL AND FULL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM STUDENTS MAY NOT NEED TO PAY THE GRADUATION FEE). NOTE: ALL SCHOLARSHIP OFFERS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE. THE FULL COST OF THE PROGRAM WILL BE NINE ESSAYS AT $99 EACH (PAY IN ADVANCE ONE AT A TIME AS YOU GO) AND THE $99 MATRICULATION (GRADUATION) FEE AT THE END OF YOUR PROGRAM (WE MAIL YOU A DIPLOMA).
THANK YOU FOR SIGNING UP FOR THIS WONDERFUL BIBLICAL DOCTRINE CERTIFICATON PROGRAM AND WE TRUST GOD WILL RICHLY BLESS YOU AS YOU DELVE DEEPLY INTO HIS WORD AND DISCOVER THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WONDERFUL TEACHINGS IN THE BIBLE. ~
