If you have a desire to learn our traditions we invites you to join us. We offer courses of education leading to ordination as a Christian Minister.

We are a legally established religious organization with the right to ordain ministers and thus qualify them as ordained ministers: to officiate at weddings, baptisms, funerals, Holy Communion, and Worship Ceremonies. Men and women who complete the course and meet all the requirements, upon their request, will be ordained in the context of worship with hand imposition in front of witnesses.

Accreditation Degrees or other qualifications from unaccredited institutions may not be accepted by civil service or other employers. Some unaccredited institutions have formal legal authorization to enrol students or issue degrees, but in some jurisdictions legal authorization to operate is not the same as education a l accreditation .Footsteps of Jesus Seminary is a distance learning, accredited theological school operated by Eric Michel Ministries International. Students are prepared for ministerial positions and other related careers in Christian Theology. EMMI which operates the Seminary FoJ/BA, is a non-profit organization.

Both are non governmental accreditation, extended exclusively to private, Christian institutions upon inspection and approval of their programs, operations, and integrity. WWAC is a worldwide accreditation that honours the separation of church and state, and extends beyond national boundaries. Its standards and expectations measure compliance with Scriptural principles as applied to education. In some country accreditation of universities and seminaries is a voluntary process with accreditation granted by private, non-governmental agencies. Governmental agencies do not provide theological or ministry accreditation.

Government-recognized accreditation is not necessary for the religious vocations in which we are equipping our students and people working in ministry positions do not need a government-accredited degree.We prepare our students for work in our ministries as a minister or lay services at Eric Michel Ministries International.

Be part of our bible studies, not only the articles of faith but it’s origin, who wrote it and why…

The Bible from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, tà biblía, “the books” is a collection of texts sacred in Judaism and Christianity. There is no single “Bible” and many Bibles with varying contents exist. Various religious traditions have produced different recensions with different selections of texts. These do largely overlap however, creating an important common core.

With estimated total sales of over 5 billion copies, the Bible is widely considered to be the best selling book of all time, has estimated annual sales of 100 million copies, and has been a major influence on literature and history, especially in the West where it was the first mass-printed book. The Gutenberg Bible was the first Bible printed using movable type.

1. View from other religions, scientists, or even atheist point of view…
2. Not limited to the book itself, but all the historic, archeology and people surrounding the Bible

We encourage you to have an open mind and be part of the discussion in our Yahoo Group with your group host the Rev Eric Michel ThD DDiv DPhil.

The Golden Rule
Our First New Computer Base Teaching “Christianity The Faith At Large”

1. The CBT provided by Research, Theology and Teaching Ministry (RTT) aim the student at the understanding of the teachings and perhaps the hope of feeling closer to God. The life and teachings of Jesus The Nazarene represent valuable life lessons.

2. This CBT Christianity: The Faith At Large looks at Jesus from a Historical perspective and from Rev. Eric Michel  commentary. Christianity did not arise as a single, uniform and coherent movement, but as one marked by diversity of opinion, practice, and belief. At the beginning it was forged by conflict as the early Christians wrestled with Judaism, collided with paganism, challenged the authority of the Roman Empire, and struggled with each other. We wish that you will understand Jesus and the meaning of his message of Love.

Lesson # 1: The basic reason why we believe in God.
Lesson # 2: A look at how the Bible was written and how it came to us.
Lesson # 3: This lesson will focus in on the central figure in Christianity, Jesus
Lesson # 4: Salvation, sins and hell
Lesson # 5: What Jesus says about the church
Lesson # 6: The final lesson is the style and purpose of Christian life.
Lesson # 7: The Chaplaincy Ministry and New Hope Ministry & Missions

Preparing yourself for the exam.
Congratulations on your decision to enter this program of study. The decision you made will consolidate your understanding of God’s
word, and will prove to be an important step in confirming your divine purpose and calling in your life.

The purpose of our Christian University is to prepare the people of God to fulfil His divine purpose in their lives and change nations.
” To edify the body of Christ, to equip God’s people for the work of the ministry, to unite in faith, to grow in quality, quantity, stability
and integrity so the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.” ( Ephesians 4:11-16)

Some important points to consider as you begin this wonderful journey of learning more about the the Bible, God’s gift to us.
As you prepare for each exam and adhere to the following criteria you can expect to successfully complete the 10 Modules of the
Certificate or Diploma Program within 12 Months.

  1. Please remember the Exams are not designed to test memory but rather understanding of the prescribed Module material. 
    Hence the reason the exams are prepared in an open-book exam format.
  2. Allocate at least one hour per day to your study material. Most of us are generally lax and need to discipline ourselves when 
    studying. How much time do we waste sitting in front of the TV?  Set aside time everyday towards your study material in a 
    disciplined way.  Remember……..’ Procrastination is the thief of time.’
  3. Set a study goal for yourself i.e. ‘I’m going to cover 25 pages per week of this module.’ Remember 25 pages per week is merely 
    3 pages of study per day. How easy is that to follow and complete. Tell yourself…..’No Excuses!’
  4. Consistency and discipline with your study is the Key to completing your study work.
  5. There are about 100 pages of study with each Module. A student who covers 25 pages of study per week will be able to 
    complete each MODULE within One month.
  6. Spending an hour per day is sufficient to cover 25 pages per Module and for the student to understand the work prepared in 
    the study material.
  7. The goal of the students should be to complete One Module Exam within the month. By completing one per month, the student 
    will qualify for the Certificate in Ministry within 12 months.
