The Apostolic Bible College was conceived by missionaries Mark & Debra Naimy to address the tremendous need in foreign fields to develop national workers to labor in our Lord’s great harvest field.
The Naimy’s discovered that there are countless capable and motivated people throughout the world who greatly desire to receive a quality Apostolic Bible College education, but - prior to ABC - they could not obtain it because of the high cost of tuition in other Bible schools.
God put it in their hearts to develop The Apostolic Bible College, a place where students could receive a world-class education regardless of their ability to pay.
The Naimy’s believed that when people realized the valuable service ABC provides, they will be inspired to join our mission, and so far it’s working!
Thousands of students from around the world have received world-class Bible College training through ABC and many ABC graduates are now much more effective ministers and soul winners!
Going forward, our vision is to greatly expand student capacity, and to make ABC courses available in all the major languages of the world.
The following statements provide a summary of biblical doctrine that is affirmed by The Apostolic Bible College:
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9.)
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection). (See I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4.)
The basic and fundamental doctrine of this College is the Bible standard of full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
As Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (See Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (See I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15).
