Christar Certificate Program

Earn a Christar Certificate after completing this track through the BibleMesh Institute

The vision of Christar is to cultivate Christ-honoring transformation in communities where He is yet to be worshiped.

Christ-honoring transformation speaks to the process as well as the outcome. In the establishment of indigenous churches, we pursue a Christ-honoring influence on the community at large. As workers who partner with God in His work, we are a part of the transformation process that God is bringing about. God’s promise in Revelation 5:9 is clear. People from every tongue, tribe, people and nation will worship God in eternity. The Christar Certificate Program is intended to provide a solid theological education toward that end.
