Courses

All lesson quizzes will be graded on a pass/fail basis. You must score at least a 70% in order to pass each Quiz. If you fail the quiz (69% or less), unless otherwise stated, you may take it again (up to a maximum of 5 attempts) until you pass. Your lesson quiz grade is the highest % score of the attempted quizzes taken. If there are assignments or any other items in your course that will contribute to your grade, you will be advised in the Student Instructions for that course. You must have a passing grade for any quizzes in a lesson before you may proceed to the next lesson. The grading scale is A (90% - 100%), B (80% - 89%), C (70% - 79%), D (60% - 69%) and F (below 60%). If you finish the course with a C grade or higher, you can print a full color Certificate of Achievement for your course signed by Rev. Angley and the Dean.


When you begin a course, please read the Student Instructions first; this is where you will find any course specific information for this course. Next, proceed to the Course Introduction for a brief introduction to the course by the instructor. Then you will notice that your Memory Verse Flash Cards and the Introduction for Lesson 1 are available for you to click on. Below the icons in each course you will notice that any tasks that you must complete before you may click on the icon are listed. The icons are locked until any prerequisite tasks are completed. Each course is divided into lessons. Please begin with Lesson 1 and work through each lesson in order. YOU CANNOT CHANGE THIS SEQUENCE because each lesson builds on the previous one. If you fail to do that, this online program WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO GO TO THE NEXT LESSON OR ACTIVITY. You must follow and repeat these steps for each lesson:

  1. Read the lesson Introduction.
  2. The lesson reading takes you to the portion of the textbook that the lesson covers.
  3. Memorize the required Bible verses for the lesson; you must know both the scriptures and their locations EXACTLY. A set of “memory verse flash cards” for the scriptures are provided to challenge your memory.
  4. Work through the lesson Study Questions which will challenge you to think about and analyze the lesson material. In Short Answer or Fill in the Blank questions, your response will appear along with the recommended answer. No reattempts for wrong answers are required for this type of question. Other question types require that you answer the question correctly before proceeding. This process IS NOT AN EXAM but simply a study process.
  5. When you complete the Study Questions, you may then move on to the lesson Quiz. Answer the questions; and when you are finished, click on SAVE ALL and SUBMIT. You will immediately receive a graded quiz score and be able to review your quiz results question by question. The minimum required passing score is 70%, and you must pass each quiz before proceeding to the next lesson.
  6. Once you pass a lesson quiz, you can move on to the lesson summary.
  7. Now proceed to the next lesson and repeat these steps.

All the materials and study aids you need are provided online. Please only use the textbooks provided online in studying for your course. The online textbooks may contain books or Giant Little Books written by Rev. Angley, but many times the online version is the latest updated version. The Online Course textbooks may also include additional materials not contained in the printed version.


The grading scale is A (90% - 100%), B (80% - 89%), C (70% - 79%), D (60% - 69%) and F (below 60%). If you finish the Course with a C grade or higher, you have passed the course and can receive a Certificate of Achievement for that Course.


Just contact us and we will get back to you during our business hours; so please be aware of time zone differences.


The Study Questions provide the basis for your learning, and you can review them up to 10 times. Some questions challenge you to compare the material to your own life. Take time to enter your responses in detail and check to the instructor’s comments. This can make the material very personal and help you spiritually. Your Quiz questions are taken directly from the Study Question material; so if you fail any of the quizzes, you must go back and review the Study Questions until you know them.


Once you have successfully completed each course with a passing grade your Certificate of Achievement will be made available at the bottom of your course’s page in the Finish Course topic block.


On the right hand side of your course’s screen there is a “Settings” block; under Course administration you will find a link to view your Grades for the course you are in.


Reference scriptures that are not included in the memory verse flash card set or are not written out in the course material have been “linked” to the Bible. These linked scriptures will appear in color, and you can click on them to read them at any time. When you are finished, you can click back to your original screen. This should make it easy for you to study the scriptures.

Anyone can enroll in any of the courses that make up the programs Basic Bible Truths and Christian Worker.


In your course, you can reference the King James Bible in the Resources block. You may also access the Bible at ernestangley.org/bible.


For courses contained in our first two categories, Basic Bible Truths and Christian Worker, the answer is, yes, you may take any of these courses that you wish. Courses contained in our third program, Ordination, may only be taken by students who have completed all of the prerequisite studies and have been accepted into the program.


Once you have successfully passed all courses for the certificate and have completed any additional requirements, you can contact us and request your certificate.


A Certificate of Accomplishment is awarded based on your completion of the requirements for that category. These requirements include your receiving a passing grade for all of your courses. If you wish to review the other requirements please click on the following link.


Ernest Angley’s Online Bible College is not an accredited college. This program is not certified by the board of regents or the state of Ohio. It is operated by Ernest Angley Ministries at 2690 State Road, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44223. Our courses consist of Biblical studies and we are seeking to train and ordain people from all over the world.


Each course can be taken on your own schedule. There is no time limit to finish your course.


We suggest that you take the courses in the Basic Bible Truths program before starting courses from the Christian Worker program. This is not a requirement but it is our suggested order for taking courses since the materials contained in the Christian Worker courses build on the fact that you have learned and understood the material covered in the Basic Bible Truths courses. However, you are allowed to take the courses in these two programs in any order that you wish. If there are any prerequisite courses required, they will be noted in the course description. Courses contained in our third program, Ordination, may only be taken by students who have completed all of the prerequisite studies and have been accepted into the program.


Carefully protect this information; it is not to be shared with others. If others use your username and password to take a course, you will not be able to complete your course. You will be locked out of the system.


Certificate of Basic Bible Truths: A student must pass all five courses in this category to receive this certificate.

Certificate of the Christian Worker: Once a student has received their Certificate of Basic Bible Truths, passed all required courses in this category and any of their chosen electives, they must submit an application to the Dean. Once their application is approved they will be awarded this certificate.

Certificate of the Ordained Minister: This certificate is only for those who definitely have the call of God on their life to become a minister of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. Before starting this program, students must have received both the Certificate of Basic Bible Truths and the Certificate of the Christian Worker. Then they must successfully apply and be accepted to this program and agree to follow a Code of Faith and Conduct. Ordination will depend upon successful completion of these courses and of other special ordination requirements.


A glossary is a list of important terms accompanied with their definitions. In our courses, words included in a glossary will appear highlighted and underlined. On our website glossaries can be site-wide as well as limited to a specific course.


Certificates of Achievement are awarded to students when they complete a course with a passing grade. Certificates of Accomplishment are awarded to students when they complete all of the requirements for a Certificate Program or Category. You can find the requirements for our Certificate Programs/Categories here.


We suggest that you enroll for one course at a time when you are ready to actually start your studies, unless you know that you will have the time to devote to multiple courses at the same time. Courses within a category can usually be taken in any order and started at any time. If there are any prerequisite courses required, they will be noted in the course description.


All reference materials for your course are provided online. There is no additional cost for these materials.


We only use and endorse the King James Version of the Bible. We do not feel that it is good to read any other versions but the King James Version. If you are having trouble understanding the Bible, ask the Lord to anoint your mind and help you to understand His truths.

You may not understand the Bible completely after reading it from the beginning to the end; however, the Holy Spirit will teach us more about the Word as we yield to God in prayer, fasting and reading the Word. John 14:26 tells us that the Holy Ghost will teach you all things. This is one reason why it is so important to be baptized in the Holy Ghost so He can teach a person the Word of God more fully.

All of our course work requires you to use the KJV; if scripture from another version is used, it will be considered incorrect.

Tips

Let’s look at a few simple tips on how to go about answering an essay question. To begin answering an essay question, you should start by reading the question very thoroughly to get a general idea of what the question is about. Next, read the question a second time and carefully make a note of all the action words that tell you what the question is asking you to do. These action words will ask you to do something, such as to: list, explain, identify, compare, contrast, retell, define, discuss, summarize, argue, tell, describe, predict, prove, evaluate, analyze, recall, advise, give an example, use details and etc.

Read the question a third time and be aware that an essay question will often ask you to do more than one thing. An essay question could possibly ask you to list certain information from the course. Next, the question may ask you to explain each listed fact by using details from the course to support your answer. So you can see that this essay question has three things it is asking you to do. The question has asked you to first list facts, next, explain each fact and finally, to use details given in the course to support or proveyour answer.  Now that you understand what you are to do, you may begin to precisely answer all parts of the question. 

After you have answered the question, you need to go back and reread the essay question one more time. Compare your answer to the question. Now, check to make sure that you have answered everything the question has asked you to do. And finally, reread your answer to ensure that you have said what you intended to say. Carefully following these simple steps can help to improve your ability to successfully answer essay questions.


In our courses, we use flashcards to help with scripture memorization. Rev. Angley taught us to put the scripture on one side of the card and the scripture location on the other. Using this method, you can test yourself both ways: if you know the location of the verse or if you know the verse from the location. You can put a booklet together of scriptures and quiz yourself on them. Below are some additional tips.

  • The key is to start by memorizing the first three words and to set them in your mind.
  • Memorize the location of the verse right along with the verse. You will soon find that it’s just as easy to say, “John 1:29, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world,” as it is to say it without the location.
  • Learn the verse, and don’t just get a vague idea of it. If you want to remember verses for many years, you have to let them make a deep, clear and vivid impression on your mind when you learn them.
  • Read the verse over many times, and then see if you can repeat it correctly. Remember to always go back and check it to make sure you are correct.
  • Write the verse down, and you’ll find that it’s just as valuable and helpful as repeating it a dozen times.
  • Review your scriptures often. This is the secret to not only memorizing them but remembering them.

The best way to bookmark or add the login page as a favorite is to first log in to Ernest Angley’s Online Bible College using your preferred browser (for example Firefox or Chrome) and your account username and password. After that, go to the tool in your browser and set the page as a bookmark or favorite just as you would for any other page. The next time you use this bookmark or favorite, it will take you to the login page.


The website will automatically log out a person who has been inactive for one hundred and twenty minutes. The inactivity is determined by the server. We have found that the server doesn’t recognize entering information into any edit box as activity and will log you out after two hours. The server will recognize selecting the “Save changes”, we recommend that students select the appropriate button periodically when typing in an edit box so the server will recognize their activity. Students can then go back and continue entering information. Taking a quiz can have similar results. You must finish all quizzes and tests in the time allowed.
