It is good to have you here at the Newman Bible Academy! It shows that you have a genuine interest in advancing your knowledge of the Bible and Christian ministry. Our motivation for the academy comes from a deep desire on our part to fulfill the Great Commission. Esmie and I know that your’s does too. The 20 courses, two-year-program offered by the Newman Bible Academy is designed to be completed entirely online. Esmie and I have directed it to developing countries, and those areas where Christian training is limited or non-existent.

Here is the GOOD NEWS! You may now take all the courses for FREE! Yes, FREE! This is because we have made a commitment to raise the money ourselves to support the ministry. Although we certainly will appreciate donation from those who want to do so! Should you decide to transfer the credits to Faith Seminary for a Bachelor’s degree in Religion, the transfer fee still applies, as per Faith Seminary policy. See details here:

The first course is on Christian Foundations. We require all enrollees to start with this course. Each course includes the ebook(s) for a text, syllabus, exam materials, and our personal attention. If you successfully complete the entire program, you will receive a diploma. The program focus is on Bible, theology, and Christian ministry. Our orientation is interdenominational.

One exciting part of the program is that you may transfer up to 60 credit hours to Faith Evangelical Seminary in Tacoma, WA USA toward a bachelor’s degree in religion (assuming you meet other requisites of the seminary). The B.A. may be fully completed on line at

We believe and pray that God will use this excellent program to equip you to be even more successful in the Lord’s work than you already are. You can complete all the courses online, at your own pace, and in the privacy your own home (or neighborhood internet café if need be). All you need is a computer (and reasonable computer skills), printer, a reasonable command of English, a Bible, and motivation.

Paul stated, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). We want to follow his admonition, and we know that you do too. Below, you can click on various sections to find out more about how the program works – and HOW TO ENROLL - NOW.
