About the Bible Minor

The Bible Minor at Cedarville

Like all students at Cedarville, you will complete a Bible minor as part of your general education coursework. Our popular sequence of five courses that make up the Bible minor will stretch you to think about God, His Word, and His world in whole new ways and will challenge you to apply Scripture to all aspects of your life.

Cedarville is pleased to make this outstanding Bible teaching available to everyone through our online Bible Minor Project. Every lecture from all five courses will be recorded and, when completed, made available for free for personal enrichment, group Bible studies, and the benefit of the church.
