Students Are Saying:

NewPointe Institute will challenge you to read the Word more, to study more and to pray more. The curriculum is great and the homework manageable. I highly recommend it - especially to small group leaders.
The NewPointe Institute offers an enlightening and challenging academic experience for increasing one's knowledge and understanding of his or her Christian faith.
Each class opened up something new about God's Word that has helped me in my walk with Christ. It gave me the opportunity to meet people from other campuses that I may not have gotten to know otherwise.
The Old Testament and New Testament Survey classes helped me understand the historical setting in which the authors wrote and their purpose in writing. That understanding has been very important to my personal spiritual growth and greatly increased my overall appreciation of God's Word.
By being a student at the Institute, God has given me the grace to see his hand at work in every area of my life.
The Institute has been invaluable in my relationship with God! I have gained not only valuable knowledge, but confidence that where God leads He will provide. I can't wait for the next class and the wisdom of the instructors. I would encourage anyone on a journey of faith to enroll today!
I knew absolutely nothing about the Bible. I started with Old Testament Survey and then followed with New Testament Survey. If someone asked me if that enriched my life ... at 73 years old I decided to be baptized and ask Jesus to be my personal savior ... what does that tell you!
If you are new to the Bible or even if you have been reading and studying the Bible for many years, there is definitely something you can gain from these classes. They were well taught and the material was wonderful.
My classmates and I left class every night with fire in our eyes! We were incredibly encouraged and determined to learn more every week. Gaining biblical knowledge helps you better understand the way God works; and what He wants to do in and through you.
The Institute was truly a life-changing experience for me. Anyone interested in taking their faith to the next level should try at least one class.
