The mission of Bold Christian University (BCU) is to equip Christians to be witnesses for our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. All lessons have only one purpose: How can the Bible be used to lead someone to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are not affiliated with any church, denomination, or college.
We encourage our graduates to start free Christian evangelism institutions
We issue degrees to encourage Christians to be witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ
We do not issue degrees to help students get a job. BCU degrees are not meant to compete or take the place of traditional professional degrees from accredited colleges and universities
BCU does not mail degrees. We email degrees upon completion of all assignments for the level of Christian witnessing that the degree represents
Please read the Accrediting page for additional information
BCU is 100% free and never solicts money from students
Mail only one lesson at a time and wait for a response before mailing another lesson.
Continuous verses are considered one verse for lesson requirements and grading.
Students who do not include their student ID with lessons will have lesson returned ungraded
BCU is an online, computer division of The Ludwig Otto Organization and has no physical location other than this web site.
When a student does not complete a degree program and fails to communicate with us for 12 months, their incomplete course records are destroyed.
BCU does not offer a Masters degree until a student has completed the Bachelor of Christian Evangelism degree at BCU.

Lesson can and will be published to help others strenghten their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. All publications offered by The Ludwig Otto Organization are 100% free to everyone. Limit of one publication per month, per person.
"Why should I witness?" Several reasons should come to mind. First, because Jesus commands you to and if you are a Christian, He gives you the desire to witness. Lost people do not have a desire to witness: (Acts 1:1-11) The mission of BCU & USCU is to equip Christians to be witnesses for our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 4:1. In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2. Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction. 3. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
