Welcome to the adventure of Christian Education in Serbia! Following the mandate of Christ given in the Great Commission, we strive to make disciples, which is essential in the life and mission of the local Church. We strongly believe that each Christian should be a student of the Word and help others to grow in their faith of Jesus Christ. Thus the inspired and infallible Word of God is central in our curriculum and its application into everyday life and ministry. Following the same missionary mandate of Christ we believe that the main ministry of the Church today is to spread the Good News of Christ to every creature.

Upcoming module

Almost a year after the appearance of the virus, we see how one small organism has completely changed behavior in the region as well as in the rest of the world. Who would say that such a small thing can affect the world around us so radically. However, that is a fact that we are facing at the beginning of the new academic year. When the May module was adjusted to the new situation, no one even imagined that everything would last until the summer, and even less until the fall.

Often humanity has such a relaxed view of sin and, due to the consequences of sin, looks quite surprised at the situation in the world, which can be depressing and sad. But this should not be so, because the word of God clearly tells us how dangerous sin is and what the result is when nothing is done about this issue. Although people know how to show moments of mercy and kindness, it must not deceive us that humanity is going in the right direction and improving. It is only God’s grace over us that leads us to live a life pleasing to God, by no means human ability or desire for goodness. In order to avoid such "romantic" feelings towards the "capacities" of humanity, it is necessary to thoroughly look at the Scriptures, explore the truths of God's word and understand how destructive sin is and how it erodes every ray of reason and conscience, without mercy and hope in change for the better. However, despite such an influence of sin, there is hope, which is not in us and does not depend on us, but comes through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross.

This sacrifice thoroughly washes away our sin and gives us the opportunity to, as pure, washed and reconciled with God, for the first time really use our free will and submit our lives to Christ, in obedience and desire to know and glorify him even more.

Perhaps this is a good example of how some things we consider trifles can cause unforeseeable consequences, such as a virus that is still active in our environment.

In light of global, medically justified reasons, we are forced to technically apply certain changes and divide the lectures into two parts in order to provide adequate health conditions for our students. More precisely, this year we will have two modules in October.

The first module, for the second and third year, which starts on September 28, and the second module, on October 12, when a new generation of students will join us.

Given these changes, these are the courses that will be offered in October in both modules:

2nd and 3rd year, (28.09 - 2.10.) - first module

Old Testament 1, professor mr. Aaron Brown
08:00 - 12:00

13:00 - 17:00

1st year, (12.10 - 16.10) - second module

Introduction to Theology, professor dr. Ondrej Franka
08:00 - 12:00
