The Tabernacle Baptist College External Studies Program was founded in 1983 under the name of Trinity Baptist Bible Institute. The name of the school was changed in 1989 since there were a number of ministries having the name Trinity. The school was transferred to Greenville, South Carolina, in the spring of 1996.
The purpose of the Tabernacle Baptist College External Studies Program is to provide a well-rounded, Bible-based curriculum for those who cannot come to the Greenville campus. The program also has several satellite schools in the United States as well as overseas.
We offer majors in the field of Theology as well as Religious Education. Degrees may be received for completing a one-year Certificate program and continue all the way to the Doctorate level. Those who major in Theology mainly enter into the Pastorate or Evangelical Ministries, while those who receive a Religious Education degree often enter into the field of Christian Education.
Courses offered in the program range from Old Testament studies such as the Pentateuch or Poetical Writings to New Testament studies such as the Gospels or Pauline Epistles. Some other Bible related courses offered range from Missions to Cults. Our curriculum endeavors to cover a wide range of subjects in order to equip the student for his or her future ministry.
Our student body is normally composed of a wide variety of individuals from different backgrounds. Some may have just graduated from high school, some may be presently active in a pastorate, and others may be active in various career occupations. We have had wives of missionaries who just wanted to broaden their education and wives of pastors who wish to be more qualified to assist the women under the pastors' ministry.
