The Free & Independent School of Theology began in 2007 as an extension of Anchor Bible College of North Carolina. It began with the intention of equipping the leadership of our affiliated church Free & Independent Apostolic Church Inc. This venture blossomed from training not only our leadership, but also allowing our membership the opportunity to gain the same knowledge. Now as of 2020 we offer our program to the public for anyone who is willing to accept the challenge of a higher learning opportunity.
Take a dive into the basic fundamentals of theology. Here in your first year of FIST we will help you lay the foundation of what theology truly is. This will make you develop a clear understanding for dissecting the word.
It is within your second year of FIST where you will learn the history of the church. We are firm believers that you won't know where you're going, if you don't know where you come from. The same thing applies to the church.
In your third year of FIST we will break down the biblical teaching of numerology. This year will challenge your way of thinking in every single way. This is a thorough course that will require to stretch yourself and your thinking.
The Graduate program at FIST is a 2 year program. This program will cover multiple books from the Bible to the lost books. The graduate program shifts into the doctoral program in year 2 with a 30,000 word dissertation assignment.
