Q1: Foundations of Faith and Theology

In the first quarter, immerse yourself in the bedrock of biblical knowledge and theological understanding. You will explore how culture impacts religious beliefs, comparing systematic theology with biblical teachings, and delve into the intricacies of academic versus popular theology. The journey continues with an examination of Calvinism and Dispensationalism, and a thorough exploration of Bible chronology and the five major covenants. You will also gain insights into the significance of translations and study tools, the role of women in ministry, and pivotal biblical events such as the Garden of Eden and the covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David. This quarter is designed to establish a strong foundation in understanding the Bible and its historical and theological contexts.

Q2: Advanced Theological Concepts and Eschatology

In the second quarter, deepen your understanding of complex theological and eschatological concepts. You will study Atonement Theory and Better Covenant Theology, focusing on the transition from the Old to the New Covenant as seen through the Book of Hebrews and the figure of Melchizedek. The exploration of eschatology will cover the Four Views of the End Times, Matthew 24, the Olivet Discourses, and the Book of Revelation, emphasizing the end of the Mosaic Covenant. Additionally, you will develop emotional intelligence, and learn about New Covenant leadership. This quarter aims to enhance your theological knowledge and prepare you for deeper spiritual insights.

The Better Covenant Academy Mandate

“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.” Col 1:28-29

Leaders are meant to build fully mature people in Christ.

Jesus said “follow me and I’ll MAKE you fishers of men.

”Leaders MAKE people into something. It could be something good or bad, depending on the leader. But leaders MAKE people into something. A good leader is focused on conforming you to the image of Christ.

“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son“ Rom 8:29

There are countless schools that will teach you Greek and Hebrew, or the sayings of Wesley, Spurgeon, and Calvin, or how to minister in the supernatural. But where is the school for conforming you into the image of Christ?

The school for growing you from a son or daughter into a Father or Mother in the faith?Better Covenant Academy is that school.

Q3: Spiritual Growth and Practical Theology

In the third quarter, focus on spiritual growth and practical applications of theology. Gain a fresh perspective on divorce, and study the messages to the seven churches in Revelation, including Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. You'll examine conclusions and chiastic structures within these texts. The quarter also covers New Covenant prayer and prophecy, and teaches how to enter the spirit realm and release all your spiritual gifts. Explore the imagination realm and understand the interplay between spirit, soul, and body. This quarter is designed to help you apply theological principles to everyday life and spiritual practices.

Q4: New Testament Insights and Living in the Spirit

You will study the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, supernatural healing, and spiritual warfare within the New Covenant context.
