Our Campus

Our ministry is a 'virtual campus.' We provide Christian education programs complete with instructional material, testing and grading.

Our primary work is in providing a unique worldview testing and training service to private schools, churches, homeschoolers, and other Christian ministries. Programs are designed for junior high through adult ages.

In-Service Program for Schools: click here.

The Institute was founded in 1986 as a non-profit private foundation to aid in restoring our nation to a biblically-based society as it once was . The Institute is operated with input from a 15-member advisory council consisting of theologians, ministry leaders, and other professionals.

We get our name from Nehemiah of the Old Testament who led the mission in rebuilding fallen Jerusalem. Today's ''Jerusalem" for the church is the whole world.

Our mission verse is:

"You see the bad situation we are in, that Jerusalem is desolate and its gates are burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem that we may no longer be a reproach to God." Nehemiah 2:17

The Institute has a 3R's method of operation:

1. RESEARCHING

Research work is accomplished by conducting a worldview testing program known as PEERS Testing. This 'test' evaluates an individual's belief in five major areas of life: Politics, Economics, Education, Religion and Social Issues (PEERS). Views in each category are identified as belonging to one of four major worldview philosophies: 1) Biblical theism, 2) Moderate Christian, 3) Secular Humanism, or 4) Socialism.   Click here for description of worldview categories.

Results of the test are returned to the individual on a PEERS Scorecard giving complete information on their views. For group testing (six or more) a wide variety of analysis reports are also included showing the strengths and weaknesses of the group as a whole. There is no extra charge for group reports.

The purpose of the research is to help individuals and organizations identify key areas where their views of life are contrary to Biblical reasoning. The test serves as a survey of the 'damage to our walls.'

The challenge to change our thinking, in becoming a Christian, was made by the Apostle Paul:

"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2

2. RETHINKING

Position Papers are offered on test items most frequently missed. The papers provide scriptural support for why we should agree or disagree with the test item. The papers challenge the person taking the test to rethink why they believe what they believe. They challenge the person to answer such questions as: Where do my views come from? What assumptions do I hold causing me to believe these views? What leading thinkers in the past held to the views I believe to be true? What are the arguments against the views I hold?

Position Papers are available in three levels: junior high, high school, and college/adult.

Scripture commands us to rethink-

"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." II Cor. 10:5

"See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ." Colossians 2:8

3. REBUILDING

The Institute offers a self-pace study course entitled, Developing a Biblical Worldview (DBW). The course is designed to lead an individual into thinking biblically about major areas of life with the goal of building a biblically-based culture. Some of the key topics in study include:
  • Biblical principles for flow of government (family, church and state)
  • Concept of limited civil-government
  • Biblical principles of money, causes of inflation and taxation
  • Education-responsibility and character of
  • Key attributes of God; on becoming a Christian
  • Family, social and nation relationships; resolving conflicts
  • Stem-cell research
  • Biblical foundations of America
  • Action required to maintain freedom in Christ

DBW includes a lesson on the Christian history of our nation and a lesson on major events of world history from a biblical point of view.

A helpful bibliography on 26 key individuals used of God throughout history is also included.

See "Online Store" page for details of courses offered.

Worldview Lab
Worldview Lab We are busy, busy conducting a complete worldview training program to give your students the very best materials in learning how to think biblically about major areas of life. Our goal is to assist educators in training their students to become producers of their own education work, not just consumers of others work.

In addition to our worldview testing program, we offer several items for teaching on 'biblical worldview' understanding. You can see a list of these by clicking here.

Teaching Philosophy

We hold to a strict biblical philosophy of life. We accept the scriptures as inerrant, unequal in authority and inspired by God.

We believe that all individuals are called to bow before God, to seek Him daily and to live in a manner that intentionally glorifies Him alone.

We believe Jesus Christ is God's only Son, that he is truth (as he personally stated, John 14:6) and that only through a right relationship with Him, can one gain a proper understanding of God, culture and eternal life.

Our philosophy of teaching includes an emphasis on self-government, ownership of academic work and being well-read from both contemporary scholars and those of the past.
