Basic Training

RHEMA offers a two level training at RBTC with the possibility of qualified completion after each level. A third step leads to ordination. Those who would like to be considered for ordination need to prove themselves in the ministry for a time.

The purpose of Basic Training is to build a solid foundation of the basic Christian doctrine. Each student receives a good understanding of “what he believes” and “why he believes it”. What you learn during this time should impact your life and alter your life style in a biblical way.

To receive a certificate of completion for the Basic Training, requirements include: attending all class hours, successful completion of the written assignments or tests of a module, reading material, as well the completion of a practicum. With the certificate of completion for the Basic Training a student can move to the second level, the Advanced Training.

A listing of the basic training courses can be found below.
