Baptist Basics University

Thanks for dropping by Baptist Basics University. This part of BaptistBasics.org is dedicated to providing material to train and strengthen Christian workers. I hope that you will personally benefit from the information here.

I hope that it is blatantly obvious that BBU is not a traditional Bible college and should not be thought of as a replacement for traditional training. The goal of this venture is to enhance the ministries of Christian workers. No degrees or diplomas are offered, just training.

I appreciate your interest in Baptist Basics University and hope that it will be a help and a blessing to you.
