Mission and Vision
The mission of the Antioch School is to provide quality distance education opportunities for students to earn academic credit, certificates, and degrees through ministry leadership development programs that are truly church-based and competency-based.
The vision of the Antioch School is to support the tremendous spontaneous expansion of the Gospel in the twenty-first century as churches, church networks, and ministry organizations use the resources of BILD International for church-based theological education.
