Bachelor of Theology

The Bachelor of Theology degree helps equip and prepare students for full-time Christian ministry with ordination in mind. Because PBTS only accepts students into the BTh program who already have earned two years of college studies (or have completed a two-year college program), the curriculum plan is focused on the foundations of biblical studies, historical-theological area and the broad areas in practical ministries within the span of two years in residential studies.

Graduates are expected to pastor a local church upon graduation. They can also proceed to Master of Arts in Ministry, Master of Arts in Missions, and Master of Divinity subject to the requirements of the respective graduate programs.
