Arise & Shine Evangelistic Association School of Bibliology
Why is this program different that other Bible training courses?
The basic teaching that runs through the entire School of Bibliology course is the importance of God’s Word – the Bible. The student is taught that God’s Word is the final authority and through the teaching of the Holy Spirit, every believer can learn and receive straight from the throne of God. It has become the norm for Bible schools to use books written by men to teach the wonderful truths of the Bible. The books may be excellent, but not necessary. Do we really believe the Bible contains words straight from the mouth of our Father God? This program is designed to help us start giving God’s point of view priority in our minds and hearts. To know God is to know His Word and you cannot love God any more than you love His Word.
What is LMTI?
The basic course of study includes the Arise & Shine School of Bibliology Program — Term One and Term Two. The details of these courses are available here. The London Outreach Center has invaluable resources available in the famous and historical city of London, and we take advantage of them. In addition to the various museums and Church History sites, London is home to people from probably every tribe, tongue and nation of the world. The world has indeed come to London and we intend to take advantage of that, also! The area is packed with famous places to study and famous places to witness and preach the Glorious Good News of Jesus Christ!
Additional topics covered will be:
The student is trained in Psycho-Drama Evangelism, Friendship Evangelism and other valid modern techniques to reach the world with the Gospel message. Each individual student is trained in effectual oratory technique and message content. Each student is observed, critiqued and encouraged in the development of his God-given gifts. You will have the opportunity to minister at the world’s largest Ferris Wheel, Buckingham Palace, Westminster, and many other world-famous sights.
At LMTI, each student is given the opportunity to preach (or share) three to four times a week, which is unparalleled in orthodox training. You will learn by instruction, study, example, and by personal involvement. You are not turned loose on the world right out of a classroom, but are trained in real-life situations, building experience and confidence which you will take with you upon graduation.
Apologetics (Defending the Faith)
One of the greatest learning experiences is preaching, sharing and debating at the world-famous Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park. You will experience this every Sunday and you will learn how to defend the Bible and your faith on every level through unique, personal, one-on-on contact in real life situations. You will learn how to talk with Moslems, Catholics and probably members of every religion under the sun!
Reformation & Church History
Our students are right in the middle of where the Reformation began around 1378 with Wycliffe. You will be surrounded by rich, historical events which have affected the Church. We study the Reformation at its climax with people like William Tyndale (Bible Translator), who died a martyr’s death because he dared to give the English people the Bible in their own language. Sites you will see include:
- Where the first English Bibles were burned in London
- Where 200 saints were burned at the stake for the owning a Bible
- Where Ridley and Latimer were imprisoned and burned at the stake
- Where William Booth, John Wesley, Charles Spurgeon, George Fox, John Bunyan, George Whitefield, and men of God ministered
- Where two of the most destructive thinkers of all time lived and are buried — Karl Marx and Charles Darwin
While studying the history of the Bible, students are able to actually see it’s history from an archeologically standpoint. Readily available in the British Museum are numerous relics that will enhance your understanding and encourage your faith. You will see objects which depict:
- Nebuchadnezzar’s taking of Jerusalem how he built Babylon
- Cyrus’s taking of Babylon and how he calls himself the King of Kings
- Sennacherib’s boasting of having Hezekiah caged up like a bird
- Tiglath Pileser II’s (Biblical Pul) references in his royal annals to Old Testament characters including Azariah, Menahem and Jehoahaz
- The Israelite King (Jehu) as he bows before Shalmaneseer
- The Temptation Seal of Adam and Eve found in Ur, the land of Abraham, and which dates to Abraham’s time
- The oldest account of the flood written on a baked clay tablet
- An idol from the city of Ur from Abraham’s era
- …And much, much more!
Each year, an outreach trip will be made which will enable the student to practice within a church setting what they are learning. This outreach is called, “The Greatest Show On Earth” and takes place on the Islands of the Philippines. You will never be the same! The outreach is for a period of two months and will give you opportunities to preach or share in churches as well as at open-air campaigns. You will be in situations that will allow you to touch the lives of those you minister to and will leave you deeply touched. This outreach trip will inspire the old pioneer spirit of the early missionaries!
Costs, Facilities, and Schedule
The London Missionary Training Institute is housed within the London Outreach Center. The building is actually a renovated Victoria Era Pub within Central London. Just one mile away is the site where the Mayflower once docked and two miles away is the Tower of London. For well over 100 years, the building (as a pub) contributed to the destruction of people’s lives. Now, it is being used to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and put people’s lives back together.
Please contact us applicable costs. Included in this amount is your tuition, your housing, your meals and your local travel expenses. Airfare to London and personal items will be your own responsibility. The Student Outreach Trip is also an additional cost depending on airfares at the time.
