What is the foundation of your life?

Foundation Institute is a nine-month academic program founded on the belief that the Bible is the Word of God and the foundation of knowledge. The Bible answers all the big questions of life—Who is God? Why did He create the world? What is the purpose of life?—and reveals the path to a happy, fulfilling and successful life.

Unfortunately, the foundational knowledge of the Bible is missing in modern education. Higher education seeks to help students learn how to make a living, but not how to live. Foundation Institute seeks to fill this gap. Through teaching the eternal truths and values of the Bible in a systematic way, Foundation Institute equips students with an understanding of the Bible and how it applies to life in the 21st century.

The core of the nine-month program is a dynamic in-depth study of the Holy Bible, coupled with discussion of how to incorporate its many truths into daily life. Students develop strong relationships with other students, participate in many activities outside the classroom and also have many opportunities to serve in the headquarters office of the Church of God, a Worldwide Association.
