Classroom Formatted Courses: Patriot offers 40 courses which provide a well-rounded education and balanced approach to get students into the Bible, and for the development of successful Christian living. They are specially designed to be taught in a group setting when combined with the Teacher's Kit.


Basic Bible Doctrine
Is it time to get "back to the basics"? This course covers important Bible doctrines including the attributes of God, the person and work of Christ, the ministry of the Holy Spirit; and teachings regarding man, Satan, angels, the church, and end time events. Added emphasis on Christian living. No matter how long you've been a Christian, we believe you will learn much from this course. Every believer should have a working understanding of these core doctrines.

Key Words of the Christian Life
A doctrinal word study based on the work of Warren Wiersbe covering such topics as justification, adoption, regeneration, propitiation, imputation, sanctification, reconciliation, redemption, intercession, mediation, predestination, and glorification. This course is designed to deepen the student's walk with Christ.

Present Labor & Future Rewards
When will we be judged? How does God chasten believers? Is sickness a result of sin? What kind of rewards will believers receive? How can I be sure of receiving a Crown? This course answers questions like these, as well as others frequently asked about future judgment and preparation for it. Based on the research of Theodore H. Epp.

Bible and Prayer
A rewarding study about prayer in the life of the believer. Includes 30 aspects of prayer such as: the purpose of prayer, the preparation for prayer, the power of prayer, private prayer, public prayer, and the perfect prayer. Added emphasis from the pen of Dr. R.G. Lee.

Bible Times and Customs
Knowing Oriental manners and customs is basic to understanding the Bible. This course deals with subjects such as customs at mealtime, education of youth, trades and professions, customs regarding marriage and property, along with many more.

Christ Our Sufficiency
How is Christ our sufficiency? The word means adequate, enough. Evangelist Oliver B. Greene demonstrates that the Believer’s needs are fulfilled in Christ as Savior, Redeemer, Advocate, Great High Priest, Life, Lord, and Hope. He is our all in all. The Apostle Peter testifies, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3). This course declares the full breadth of this foundational truth.

Christian Warfare
The Christian life is a warfare, not a picnic. We are called to be soldiers, and this course identifies our enemies, shows how we should fight, and describes the conditions for victory. Authors and prayer warriors E.M. Bounds, J.Vernon McGee, and Roy C. Putnam share Biblical teachings on the Christian's most potent weapon - prayer. If there is one area where all Christians need to improve, it is prayer.

God's Wonderful Promises
A valuable study of God's promises for personal strength, daily provisions, Divine protection, and inner peace. This course also utilizes The Bible Promise Book which contains more than 1,000 promises from the Bible.

Surviving an Economic Meltdown
How can I survive the current financial crisis in our nation? People are getting laid off, many are losing their homes, investments have gone up in smoke. Does the Bible have anything to say about this? This course is for anyone entangled (or about to be) in an economic meltdown. Know this; priceless treasure is within your reach. And with it, liberating joy. Discover a joy more precious than gold. Learn practical and spiritual strategies for you and your friends. Jesus has given us the treasure principle. Unearth it.

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:6). The Lord desires to exalt you! And He will, after your natural pride is replaced with His supernatural humility. In this crucial course, Andrew Murray and others provide great insight from God’s word on the pivotal ingredient of true Christianity.

Old Testament Survey I
* New November 2012
Any higher Biblical education is not complete without an Old Testament Survey course. This survey course summarizes the overall contents of the first 17 books of the Old Testament (Genesis-Esther). Many Christians wrongly believe that the Old Testament contains nothing relevant for today. It is almost treated as a separate document that is ignored or treated as a dead history. In truth, the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself said that He came not to abolish the OT but to fulfill it. Bible students must know the OT to fully understand the New Testament.

Old Testament Survey II

This survey course covers Job through Malachi
* New February 2013

Book of Ruth

J.Vernon McGee leads this study on the Romance of Redemption. Is there any more memorable statement of faith than Ruth's "..thy people shall be my people, and thy God shall be my God."? This woman of faith lost her husband and came out of the idolatrous land of Moab only to be remarried to Boaz. We have much to learn from this ancestor in the line of Jesus our Lord. Redemption is only possible through a Kinsman-Redeemer. The student will gain a fuller appreciation of our Redeemer - Jesus Christ.

Christ in the Tabernacle

Theodore Epp reveals how Christ is portrayed in every aspect of the tabernacle God commanded Moses to build. Learn about the rich symbolism of this structure and its relevance to our personal worship of God through Christ. The Old Testament points to Jesus Christ in the New Testament. The tabernacle in the Old Testament is but one place that points to the Messiah.

Book of Nehemiah
It has been said, "If every Christian would study and follow the inspiring example of Nehemiah, surely we would enjoy a genuine, refreshing revival of faith and morality". The Book of Nehemiah abounds with wisdom for church policies and guidance. Nehemiah's leadership serves as a Biblical primer to anyone aspiring to places of leadership. The student will learn of Biblical social justice, the call to national repentance, and how righteousness exalteth a nation. A 2400 year old lesson that has never been more needed in our nation's history.

Psalm 23
Shepherd Phillip Keller shares his insights into the life and character of sheep--and of the Good Shepherd who loves and cares for them. David, the "Shepherd King" and son of a shepherd, wrote Psalm 23 from humble origins with teaching couched in rural terms. Today's urban city dweller is often unfamiliar with David's physical illustrations which relate spiritual truth in this most beloved Psalm. This course is sure to open the student's understanding of Psalm 23 like never before. Oliver B. Greene and Robert S. Peterson round out the instruction in this much appreciated course.

Proverbs are short sentences drawn from long experience. This is one of the many profound insights J.Vernon McGee offers in his commentary on the book of Proverbs. During this study you will gain the tools of interpretation needed to dig out the spiritual treasures of God's wisdom found in Proverbs. The diligent student is given a promise from God to understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

New Testament Survey

Since the entire New Testament is vital to the life of every Christian, it is important to have a bird's eye view of the "lay of the land". New Testament Survey provides a blueprint of the purpose, background and contents of all 27 books. It will prepare and encourage you to take a closer look at the riches found in each of these books.

Gospel of Mark
J.Vernon McGee is quoted as saying, "There is probably more content in the first chapter of Mark than any other chapter in the Bible." Mark reveals that in spite of Jesus' busy life, He took time to pray. This verse by verse, chapter by chapter exploration spans Mark's recounting of the prophecies of Isaiah and Malachi through John the Baptist ending with the Resurrection of Jesus. Have you studied this Gospel?

Jesus:  The Vine
Are you ready to break through to the abundant life? Do you want to experience the joy of making maximum impact for God? The key is found in learning to abide in Jesus, the True Vine. This study from John 15:1-16 explores the teaching of our Lord on the vine and the branches. Discover the fullness of God’s merciful lovingkindness and the blessings of a fruitful life through timeless truths presented by Andrew Murray. 

Christ's Words from the Cross
This unique and rewarding study discusses the seven utterances Christ spoke while on the Cross. Russell Bradley Jones and Warren Wiersbe have researched them in-depth and present them here. Each utterance of Christ is packed with meaning and purpose. These last words were not the cry of a defeated victim, but the proclamation of a triumphant Victor.

A captivating study of future events as portrayed in the greatest book of prophecy including the rapture, great tribulation, millennium, Great White Throne Judgment, and the new heaven and earth. This course takes a pretribulation and premillennial viewpoint. God promises a special blessing for those who read, hear and treasure the words found in the Book of Revelation. The world has never been closer to these end time events. Are you ready?

The All-Sufficient Christ by Theodore Epp illuminates the spiritual truths that are packed into the book of Colossians. Often overlooked because it is relatively short, Colossians demonstrates that Christ is all a Believer needs. This course emphasizes not only Biblical doctrine, it refutes false teaching and shows the Christian how to live based on sound doctrine. The student will gain a greater realization of what the Bible means when it says, "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Col 1.27).

Book of Philippians
"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain" is Paul's fully surrendered statement of faith. Theodore Epp and J. Vernon McGee discuss how Christ is preeminent in all things and how we can see Him as our life, our mind, our goal and our strength.

Seven Churches of Revelation
The last word of our Lord to the church is not the Great Commission. Rather it was “Repent”. This course is a Message on Revival. Indeed, five out of the seven churches were called to repent. Jesus’ admonition of repentance is purposed towards overcoming backsliding. He promises divine rewards for he that overcomes. The minister will find much insight for individual and corporate revival. Today’s church does well to heed the advice given to the Seven Churches of Revelation.

1st & 2nd Thessalonians
In this course, Warren W. Wiersbe shows how a study of 1 and 2 Thessalonians provides both prophetical and practical lessons. The focus in these books is not on what the return of Jesus Christ will mean to us in the future. Rather, it is on how this subject can be a dynamic in our lives and in the ministry of our churches today.

Character Development
Dr. Bob Jones, Sr. said, "Your character is what God knows you to be; your reputation is what men think you are." Abraham Lincoln put it this way: "Character is like a tree and reputation is like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing." This dynamic study concentrates on the Biblical attributes, attitudes, and actions of a maturing Christian; and how one may obtain them. One of Patriot's best-loved courses.

Spiritual Power in Teaching
The Holy Spirit is vitally involved in Christian education. His involvement distinguishes Christian teaching from secular teaching. Based on Roy B. Zuck's classic examination of the teacher's "spiritual Teammate" and how to cooperate with Him for successful teaching. "Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts". Zechariah 4:6

Christ, the Teacher
In every respect Jesus was the ideal teacher. He presented unique teaching that caused people to recognize something was different. This course delivers an analytical study of teaching techniques used by Jesus. Learn how Jesus used the lecture method, how He captured interest, used illustrations and paradoxes, even asking questions, making commendations and rebukes, that produced disciples.

Spiritual Leadership
Real leaders are in short supply. Churches, people, and groups all search for them. Throughout the Bible God searched for them. The Bible shows us that when God does find a person who is ready to lead, that person is used to the limit. Despite their flaws and shortcomings, they become a spiritual leader. Authors R.A. Torrey and Oswald Sanders expound on obtaining God's power and wisdom as spiritual leaders. Jesus was revolutionary in His teaching on leadership. Do you aspire to the honorable vocation of spiritual leadership? Take this course.

The Biblical Family
This course deals with Biblical principles which lead to strong and successful homes, including the proper role of husband, wife, and children. Practical scriptural solutions are presented for the problems which plague families today.

Winning over Worry
The need to help people cope with the problem of worry cries out for a spiritual solution! Uncontrolled worry corrodes the joy of living and brings about deterioration of mind and body. The world tries to solve these problems with temporary, partial quick-fixes (often resorting to medication that may even lead to substance abuse). Any non-biblical approach will ultimately just give the worrier more to worry about. People are desperate for a total solution, and that can only be found through God’s peace principles as revealed in His Word. This course uses a classic bestseller by John E. Haggai and a small booklet by Charles Weigle to equip the counselor to point others to worry-free living.

Principles of Spiritual Growth
The aim of this course is to carefully bring out important principles of spiritual growth. The student will learn how to build upon a sound Biblical foundation in Christ. Being filled with the Holy Spirit: What it is, What it is not, What it will do for you, How you may have it. You'll be inspired by this practical study of various aspects of the Christian life by outstanding servants of God, such as Miles Stanford, E.J. Daniels, and others.

Handling Adversity
This course is based on How to Handle Adversity by Charles Stanley. When troubles come, we usually ask why. But the more significant question is "How should I respond?" This course can help you personally and can provide a Biblical resource for you in counseling with others.
