In Christ International Bible College

Welcome to In Christ International Bible College!

Welcome to In Christ International Bible College. Our vision is to help you go deeper in the Word of God. In Christ International Bible College is not just for those planning to enter the ministry, but for all believers who are ready to take their relationship with God to the next level.  At ICIBC you will be given the opportunity to study the Word of God on a deeper level in a fully accredited program. This program is designed to help you develop a spirit of faith and to learn who you are in Christ while equipping you for the call of God on your life through serving your local church. We consider it an honor to help you prepare for your future and fulfill God's plan for your life. In Christ, Mark and Trina Hankins 


The Christian degree programs offered at In Christ International Bible College are designed to equip students for the call that God has placed on their life. We have chosen to pursue independent accreditation in order to fulfill this assignment given by God to this ministry.

We are accredited through Accrediting Commission International, the world’s largest, non-governmental, school accrediting association. ACI is the accrediting authority for thousands of students in hundreds of schools in 9 countries on 5 continents, and operates in 35 states within the USA (including Washington, D.C.).

Specializing in seminaries and Bible colleges, ACI is an independent accrediting agency that exists to help the religious world obtain accreditation that is not government affiliated. All ACI member schools accept credits from other member schools, if the credits apply to their programs.

We have chosen this form of accreditation and not government accreditation through regional associations because we believe that secular institutions should not be given the authority to dictate the qualifications of our professors or spirit-filled programs.

In Christ International Bible College offers academic programs with the primary objective of establishing a firm foundation in understanding our identity and inheritance in Christ. ICIBC is ministerial in nature and is not for persons intending to build secular careers.

This form of ministerial accreditation is not recognized by the United States Department of Education, but is recognized by most churches and ministry organizations.


In Christ International Bible College is an affiliate of Mark Hankins Ministries and Christian Worship Center, Alexandria, Louisiana which are independent, 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit educational, evangelical and church organizations incorporated in the State of Louisiana, USA.






A Message from Our Founders

Many Christians talk about what they are trying to be, what they need to be, and what they are going to be. God wants you to understand who you are and what you have NOW in Christ.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. II Corinthians 5:17

God has already done everything He is going to do about our salvation, our healing, our deliverance, and our blessing. Jesus paid it all and then sat down. Now it is our move - we have to know what He’s done for us and act in faith on the Word of God.

What is the Holy Spirit saying to the Church in these end times? What should we be doing when there are financial storms, vipers of fear, disease, and troubled times surrounding us? What are you looking at? It is time to focus our attention on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

II Corinthians 4:18

There is a supernatural transformation when you keep your gaze fixed upon the Word. Receive God’s blessing and transformation when you look at His Word. Let the Holy Spirit reveal the face of Christ and stamp it into your heart. God wants your life to impact the generations that follow you with the victorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!

In Christ,

Mark & Trina Hankins

Statement of Faith

The In Christ International Bible College considers the following statements to be true according to the infallible Word of the One true and living God. 

SCRIPTURES INSPIRED All Scripture is verbally inspired by God as written in the original languages and is inerrant revelation of God to man. The Bible is the infallible authority for faith and conduct. II Timothy 3:16-17

ONE TRUE GOD The One True God is the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of the universe. He has further revealed Himself as a triune Being, manifested as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I John 5:7, John 14:23, John 14:16

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST The Lord Jesus is 100% divine (Son of God) while simultaneously being 100% human (Son of Man). As God Incarnate, He is the express image of the Living God in human form. John 1:1,14, Luke 3:22, John 10:30

ORIGINAL SIN / FALL OF MAN Man was created good and upright in the image and likeness of God. The first man, Adam, through disobedience, fell from the grace of God and, thus, sin and death entered into the world. Adam’s transgression incurred not only physical death for man, but also spiritual death which is eternal separation from God. Man’s propensity to sin because of his sinful nature necessitates salvation from the power of sin and a Savior to provide that salvation. Genesis 3:7-24, Romans 5:12-19

SALVATION OF MAN Man’s only hope of redemption and salvation from sin is through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. His blood is completely sufficient to deliver every person from the power and penalty of sin. Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 9:12

BAPTISM IN WATER Baptism by immersion in water is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent of their sins and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Romans 6:3-5, Matthew 28:18-20

HOLY COMMUNION The Lord’s Supper, consisting of bread and a cup of the fruit of the vine, is a memorial of Jesus’ suffering and death and a celebration of His resurrection to be enjoyed by all believers until He comes again. I Cor. 11:23-26, Matthew 26:26-28

DIVINE HEALING Divine healing is provided for in both Old and New Testaments and is integral to the Gospel. Christ has purchased our freedom redeeming us from the curse of the law which includes every kind of sickness and disease. Manifestations of this miraculous power is not only recorded in the Word of God, but also continues to be seen in the earth today. Galatians 3:13, Deuteronomy 28:21-65, Psalm 103:2-3, Isaiah 53:4-5, Romans 8:11, I Peter 2:24, James 5:14-15, Hebrews 13:8

TITHE, OFFERINGS AND PROSPERITY The giving of tithes and offerings is a commandment of the Word of God. Those who withhold their tithes and offerings are robbing God. God will rebuke the devourer for the giver and open up the windows of heaven and pour out His blessings. God delights to respond to giving with gracious provision. Malachi 3:8-12, Luke 6:38, Philippians 4:19

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Acts 1:4-5, Acts 2:1-4, Ephesians 5:18, Mark 16:17

CHURCH AND ITS MISSION The Church is the Body of Christ and is comprised of all believers. Since God’s purpose concerning man is to seek and to save that which is lost, to be worshiped by man, and to build a body of believers in the image of His Son, the Church’s responsibility is: 1) to evangelize the world, and 2) to be a corporate body in which man may worship and glorify God. Luke 19:10, Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Acts 1:8, Heb10:25,  

EVER-INCREASING FAITH Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. God is a faith God and without faith it is impossible to please Him. Our faith should continually increase as we grow in spiritual understanding of God’s Word. Christians are saved through faith, justified by faith, shall live by faith, and overcome the world by faith. Romans 10:17, Hebrews 11:6, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 5:1, Romans 1:17, I John 5:4

THE BLESSED HOPE All Christians who have died will one day rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air. Christians who have not yet died will be raptured or caught up with them, to be with the Lord. Then Christians of all ages will live with God forever. The scriptural truth of the Lord’s soon return is "the blessed hope." Romans 8:23, I Corinthians 15:51-52, I Thessalonians 4:16-17, Titus 2:13

SECOND ADVENT AND MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST The rapture of all Christians, which is our blessed hope, will be followed by the seven year tribulation period on the earth after which is the return of Christ (second advent) with the saints to reign on the earth for 1000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of Israel as a nation and the establishment of universal peace. Matthew 24:27,30, Revelation 1:7, 19:11-14, 20:1-6, Zephaniah 3:19,20, Romans 11:26,27, Isaiah 11:6-9, Micah 4:3,4

THE FINAL JUDGEMENT There will be a final judgement in which the wicked dead, those who have died without accepting Christ’s salvation, will be raised and judged according to the way they lived. Anyone whose name is not found written in the Book of Life (the recorded list of people who received Christ’s forgiveness), together with the devil, his angels, the beast, and the false prophet, will be sent into everlasting punishment in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone (sulfur), which is the second death. Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48, Revelation 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8

THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH According to God’s promise, we look for the new heavens and a new earth where righteousness will dwell and reign forever. II Peter 3:13, Revelation 21,22
