For over 25 years ICI (International Correspondence Institute) has shared free bible learning courses with any individual in the world who wanted them. A few years ago ICI changed it's name to Global University due to it's world wide missions outreach. You can go to their website and find these courses listed there or you can click on the links below. If you go to their website you will find their courses listed in many languages other than English.

If you want to study the Holy Bible online then this is one web page to come to for those links. ICI has 9 major Bible Sections (listed below) as well as a New Life Study Guide. Each major Bible Section has several lessons to it as well as a study guide. There are some self tests and answer sheets for you to use if you want to. Each lesson is offered to you in the .pdf file ending that makes it easy for you to download or print. The Assemblies of God is a major Pentecostal Christian denomination and holds to mainline Christian doctrine.

The free courses offered are simply for your own knowledge about God and His word, however, if you want official credit for any of your work you will have to apply and enroll online at Global University. You can become a minister, God willing, by taking Berean courses.

Please do not send any of your ICI test answers or paperwork to Bread On The Waters (BOW) as we only offer links to the wonderful ICI courses. The late Rev. Joseph Gerhardt, who at one time, was the District Superintendent of the Northern California and Nevada District, got me and my ministry involved with ICI in the late 1970's. Around that time we used to have an ICI sign up campaign where we offered a free Bible in exchange for 100 names and addresses of folks in any village or barrio in the world. This is when our missionary bottles were piloted by God to folks in remote areas and God used them to help make connections. The bottle finder would write to us, and later, send us the name and address list. Then we would send a Bible (in their national language dialect) to the missionary bottle finder. We would send the name and address list to the nearest Assemblies of God missionary who would send out the ICI lessons in their postal mail. Many indigenous folks were saved and strengthened in their faith that way. That's how I know that the ICI courses are the best in the world. BOW is still a literature evangelism ministry and it is our pleasure and privilege to share these ICI courses with you from this web page.
