Our History

The first School of the Bible began in the early 1990’s as a ministry of the Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee, under the direction of Pastor Clarence Sexton. This first school was named the Knoxville School of the Bible and continues to this day providing Bible training not only for members of Temple Baptist Church, but also for many others in the greater Knoxville area and surrounding counties. In recent years, numerous local churches have also established a School of the Bible to provide helpful training for their people and for those in their community. Each of these schools operates in affiliation with Crown College of the Bible, yet each one is under the authority of a local church and under the direction of its pastor. These affiliate schools take on a regional name that identifies them with the area in which they are located. For instance, some schools are named as follows: Ripley School of the Bible (Ripley, West Virginia); North Atlanta School of the Bible (Acworth, Georgia); Fort Worth School of the Bible (Fort Worth, Texas).

Our Motto

The School of the Bible follows the biblical pattern given in II Timothy 2:2, which says, “And the things which thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” The School of the Bible motto is “able to teach others also.” This theme permeates every course and every lesson. Through prepared materials and instruction, and through personal study of God’s Word, students are equipped to be “able to teach others also.” They are challenged to be filled with the Spirit of God and to be used of the Lord to commit His Word to others.

Our Doctrinal Beliefs

All churches that operate a School of the Bible stand in agreement with the Statement of Faith held by Crown College of the Bible as stated in the college catalog.

Course Descriptions

Semster Schedule

Each semester must include a minimum of twelve (12) class sessions, with classes meeting a minimum of forty (40) minutes. A typical School of the Bible will operate one night a week on the following schedule:

7:00 pm - 7:40 pm First class

7:45 pm - 8:25 pm Second class

8:30 pm - 9:10 pm Third class

A five-minute pause between classes provides needed break time for students and teachers. It is the responsibility of the host church to determine the exact schedule for their School of the Bible. The host church will also determine an appropriate meeting location and assign capable teachers for classes.

A typical fall semester will begin at the beginning of September and continue through the first week of December. A typical spring semester will begin in the middle of January and continue through the end of April.
