The administration and faculty at The Kaleo Institute truly believe that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (&17, NIV). At The Kaleo Institute at Brewer Christian College and Graduate School, the Word of God is the foundation of each program of study. All students pursuing an undergraduate degree are required to complete a major in Bible consisting of a foundational core of 29-44 semester credit hours of Bible and theology, and 39 hours of Bible and Theology based professional studies. We believe that every student should complete a Worship Ministries major for the following reasons:

  • We affirm the Divine inspiration, truthfulness, and authority of both the Old and New Testament scriptures, in their entirety, and the only written Word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of life, faith, and practice.
  • We affirm the power of God’s word to accomplish His purpose of salvation. The message of the Bible is addressed to all mankind, for God’s revelation in Christ and in Scripture is unchangeable. Through it, the Holy Spirit still speaks today. He illuminates the minds of God’s people in every culture to preserve its truth freshly through their own eyes
  • The Bible provides the foundation for effective and powerful service to God through vocation in the Church and in the world.
  • The Bible provides an individual with a standard for living a Godly and purpose filled life.

  2. Students will become proficient in personal Bible study by mastering the tools required for the task.
  3. Students will become motivated Children of God who are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and serve the Lord Jesus through daily prayer, Bible study, corporate worship, and demonstrate the Fruits of the Spirit in their daily lives.
  4. Students will be able to use the standard found in the Bible as a basis for critical and logical decision making.

16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, (ESV)

3:1 Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written,

“That you may be justified in your words,
and prevail when you are judged.”

But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.) By no means! For then how could God judge the world? But if through my lie God’s truth abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner? And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.

What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, 10 as it is written:

“None is righteous, no, not one;
11 no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery,
17 and the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.

21 But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— 22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. 26 It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

27 Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, 30 since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. 31 Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law. (ESV)
