Ottawa School of the Bible
is Happening Online!

We’re prioritizing the health and safety of our students by transitioning to an adapted, online format. Classes will continue to have live, real-time interactions with students and teachers over video chat platforms. 

Even though OSB may look a little different, we’re looking forward to learning with you this year!

We Believe the
Bible is for Everyone!

We believe someone who consistently follows Jesus has a life marked by three distinctions:

  • A personal hunger to be led more by Jesus.
  • An evident passion to lead more like Jesus.
  • An outward focus which leads more to Jesus

Bibical Foundations

In Year One, each student will study the entire Bible through six courses to assist in establishing a firm foundation of Biblical understanding.

Term 1 - The Beginning

A study of the first five books of the Bible; Genesis to Deuteronomy, with an emphasis on Genesis and the creation story.

Term 2 - The History

A systematic overview of the first twelve historical books of the Bible – from Joshua to Esther.

Term 3 - The Prophets

Seeing prophecy in God’s Word is so important that it occupies one-third of the entire Bible. God reveals His ongoing plans for the prophet’s own time, for coming events and for eternal principles of right and wrong.

Term 4 - The Gospels

A study of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as described in the four Gospels and His ongoing ministry through the establishment of the church.

Term 5 - The Book of Acts

A systematic study through the Book of Acts to discover the principles of how we are to live out our Christian life.

Term 6 - The Epistles

A look at the various letters Paul wrote to the New Testament Church, while discovering motivating messages of how to apply these truths to today’s situations.

Doctrinal Understanding

Year Two builds upon the Biblical foundations by giving the student a more in-depth study into the essential doctrines (beliefs) of the Scriptures.

Term 1 - Theology & the Word

This course will help the student embrace a Spirit-filled life while growing in a disciplined approach to the study of God’s Word. 

Term 2 - Pneumatology

Study of the role, purpose, and power of the Holy Spirit, both doctrinally and practically in the life of the believer.

Term 3 - Soteriology

Designed to take a closer look at God’s plan of salvation through the Old and New Testament Scriptures. While reviewing doctrinal positions and eternal security.

Term 4 - Sexuality

This course is designed to provide a theologically sound teaching and practical guidance on questions related to faith, sexuality and gender. We need both a robust Biblical ethic and a radical acceptance of all individuals.

This course is broken into two segments. The first hour is a systematic review of the Book of Hebrews and the second hour is a thorough understanding of the importance of sharing your for the believer.

Term 6 - Eschatology

Term 1 - Apologetics

This course is about Christians understanding what they believe and why, and knowing how to effectively communicate those beliefs. 

Term 2 - Authority of the Believer

This course is an overview of the authority the believer has in Jesus Christ and the Christian’s position in overcoming the works of the enemy.

Term 3 - Biblical Boundaries

This course will provide you practical tools in setting limits for yourself while respecting the boundaries of others as we commit to growing together with Jesus to make a difference in our city.

Term 4 - History of the Church

An overview of the church from the Book of Acts to the current church age. A new ministerial course for current and previous students to study.
