The training I received at IBC has been a great help in my pastoral ministry

Foundations: The Basics of Theology

 

Foundations: The Basics of Theology is a course that is taught in the evenings in various locations covering a diverse selection of biblical, theological and practical topics. You can study in whichever location suits you best: Moira (Irish Baptist College), Ballymena (Baptist Church), Dublin (Jamestown Road Baptist Church) or online (Zoom). Our aim is to provide rich theological training and fellowship for those who are not employed in a ministry context.
