SALVATION I. & II.
The foundation of all Christian living and service.
Of all of the needs of life, preeminent is the need for life- after this life. All of mankind is under the curse of death. Death, the end of physical life, is a common end for every human being; and without Salvation all will suffer the second death- hell and the
lake of fire.
As Christians, we know about Salvation through Christ. We even know the rudiments of what Salvation means. But few of us know what the term really means. Oh yes, we know what benefits we derive from it, forgiveness of sin, Heaven, the power of God dwelling within us to help us to strive toward godly living, etc., but we don't have the real depth of knowledge about Salvation that is available to us. And since it is available to us, then to not partake of that knowledge is to disobey God's command that we study His Word.
Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a
that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The study of
this subject will be in two parts. Salvation I. will be a simple outline study of the subject.
Salvation II. will be an in-depth study of the intricacies of the subject.
This is a First Level required course.
The purpose of this class is to teach you the foundation upon which all
of our Christian life is built. Salvation by God's grace through
faith in Christ is the cornerstone of our faith and the only means of gaining the Holy Spirit who
alone can equip us for all ministry for God
and empower us for a life of godly living and effective service.
When you finish this class you will have a biblical working knowledge of Salvation- what it is, what it isn't, who it is from, how to get it, how to keep it, and through that knowledge gained, how to pass it on to others in obedience to Christ.
- Transcript and Grades Form: Students are also required to report their grades for verification to the Administrative Office every 6 months. This is accomplished by means of the TRANSCRIPT & GRADES FORM.
If you need help using that form you can access an Instruction Video explaining its use. When you reach that page, scroll down to the video entitled How to Use the Transcript and Grades Template. Update that form every time you start a course and every time you pass a quiz/test.- Sign In: If you have not already done so, please SIGN IN for this course.

You may take and submit not more than 1 section/lesson test each week.
- Course Record form: If you have not already done so from a link earlier in these instructions, print a Course Record Form on which to keep all pertinent information for this course. You will need this information for other forms which you will fill out later in this course. You only need to print one copy of the form for each course. On it you will record all information for each course.
- Complete each section of the textbook, looking up all of the scriptures referenced. You must use the King James Version because all of the scriptures in these courses are from that version. There are blanks in the scriptures which are quoted in the lessons. No provision is made for you to fill in the blanks, they are there only to make it necessary for you to go to your Bible to read the completed reference and or to bring your attention to a particular portion of the scripture.
The Salvation course is worth one (1) credit.

Therefore, without a Testing Instruction form in your file your tests will be disallowed and they will not be credited to you. And if you do not know how to correctly fill out the information page on the test then it cannot automatically email you a copy of your test as it is designed to do.
- Name entry on tests: Students are required to use proper letter-case when inputting their names on all submissions to the college. Example: If your name is John Smith, then input John Smith, not john smith. or JOHN SMITH. If you do not use proper letter-case when you input your name on a test, then the test will be Disallowed and discarded.
- Open book tests: All tests in the Salvation course are "open book," which means that you may use all study materials (workbook, textbook, Bible, etc.) while taking the tests.
EXACT ANSWERS: Those tests that are open book will often require the exact answer from the textbook, workbook, or Bible, whichever of the study materials are appropriate, for most of the questions. Incorrect answers, spelling errors, punctuation errors, extra spaces before or anywhere in the answer or after the answer, will cause the answer to be scored as "Incorrect." Along with the privilege of using your study materials and taking an "open book" test comes the responsibility of giving the answers to questions verbatim from those study materials wherever required.
each section, and meeting the one week minimum attendance requirement for the lesson, then you may take the test for that
section. All tests are open book, which means that you can use
your textbook/workbook to help you take the test.
- If you fail a test, then review the text and then take the test again on or after the next day. Repeat this process until you pass the test.
- ATTENTION: You MAY NOT Take any test more than once on any one day.
Should you fail a test you must wait until the next day to repeat it.
You may NOT take more than one test in any one subject on any one day.
- When you have passed the section test, then go on to the next section after reviewing the text in order to find the correct answers to any questions missed on the test. Once you have received a passing score on a test, do not take it again. Only your first passing score will be added to you file. Any others will be discarded.
We must process and discard additional tests by hand and this causes extra work for us. So please only take or retake the tests until you pass them.
- After completing the last section and passing the test for that section, then you will need to go to the SIGN IN page and submit it as "Finished" and then retrieve the PASSWORD and take the FINAL TEST. You will find the Password and Final Test links at the bottom of this page.
NOTE on TESTING:
of tests: Sometimes
tests do not submit properly. This can be due to a glitch in
the test, a problem with your computer, or an Internet
problem. Therefore, students are required to save a copy of
the Results Page of every test that they take. This is
necessary so that if a test does not submit properly the student
will have a copy of the Results page to submit to us upon our
request. (Do NOT send it unless we request that you do
so.) The copy of the Results Page can then be placed in your
academic file in lieu of the actual test.
You can click HERE for instructions for saving a copy of the Results Page to your computer. You may want to print out a copy of those instructions or else you can save an electronic copy to your computer.
on MISSED QUESTIONS:
you had any wrong answers on any test, then you must restudy that
section of the textbook or the Bible, whichever is appropriate for the question, and find all of the correct answers to the
questions that you missed on the test. This is required whether you pass or fail the test.
