Baptist History and Distinctives

         This course will give you an understanding of the history of the Baptists.  In it you will gain an understanding of them as the only group extant today that never associated with Rome (meaning the Roman Catholic Church) and, therefore, cannot truthfully be called Protestants.  Because of their refusal to bow to the Catholic dictatorship, you will see their story written in fire and blood exactly as it stained the pages of history.


       Textbook: The Trail of Blood by J.M. Carroll
         You will read this textbook and complete all tests included in it.

         After the last lesson there is a link for ADDITIONAL READING.
         This additional reading must be completed before taking the Final Test.



   The textbook is divided into eight sections. Not more than one section is to be be completed each week. At the end of each section you will stop and take the Section Test that corresponds with the section you just finished studying. All Section Tests are “open book,” which means you may use your textbook while taking the tests.

Attendance: Minimum attendance for each lesson is 1 week.
Minimum attendance for the course is 8 weeks.

                     Student will earn 1 credit for successful completion of this course.

If you failed the test then you must restudy that entire section and then retake the test. Repeat this process until you finally pass the test.  You cannot go on to the next section until you have passed the test for the current one.  That means that you cannot read the entire text and then come back and take all of the tests at once.  You must study one section of the text and then take and pass the test for that section before going on to study the next section.
If you fail a test, you MAY NOT attempt that test again on the same day.  You must restudy the textbook/workbook and find all of the correct answers to the questions missed and then retake the test no sooner than the next day.

If you missed
any of the questions on any test, then you must review the section corresponding to that test and look up the correct answers to any questions answered incorrectly.
Once you have found all of the correct answers, then you may continue on to the next section of the textbook.

You may NOT take more than one test on one day in any one course.  If you fail a test you may not retake that test until the next day after restudying the section and finding all correct answers to the questions you answered wrong.

Once you have completed all sections of the textbook and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on any test, then you may sign in and mark the form "Finish" and then retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.  Final Test is "closed book" and you must submit the Closed Book Test Contract Form before taking the test.  There is a 20 minute time limit on the test.  You will see a time remaining clock in the upper right hand corner of the test screen.  Time does not start until your first question comes on the screen.

Once you have passed the final test, do not take it again.
-  If you fail the final test then you need to restudy both the textbook and all of the section tests and then retake the final test. Repeat this process until you pass the Final Test.

If you miss any questions on the Final Test, even though you passed it, then you need to review the textbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers in the textbook to the questions you missed. A copy of each of your section tests was sent to you and they will have all of the correct answers on it for comparison purposes to make sure you have found the correct answers in the textbook.
