Agape Divinity School is an affordable, online center of quality theological education. All of our programs are offered completely by distance and require no coursework. Each degree program consists of required independent research and the writing of an original thesis.

We are an international divinity school and accept students from all over the world. ADS is a non-discriminatory institution of theological education accepting students of all ethnic and religious backgrounds.

ADS is not affiliated with any particular religious denomination, but does consider itself ecumenically and evangelistically Christian in outlook and philosophy. However, many of our students are from faith traditions other than Christianity.
