Grow your knowledge of Scripture and theology for free.

For more than 90 years, DTS has been committed to teaching the truth found in Scripture. The Bible is our central course of study – and every word in it is useful for building up the Body of Christ (2 Tim 3:16).

We have trained thousands of pastors and teachers over the past nine decades, but our mission has always gone far beyond the borders of our physical campus. We want to train believers worldwide to know Scripture and allow it to bear fruit in their lives.

That is why we’ve launched these free online courses. We believe the world desperately needs biblical truth, and these courses will help us reach and teach more people than ever before.
