The IKI is committed to providing the church and its leadership with a comprehensive and quality education in the revelation of God's Kingdom
The International Kingdom Institute (IKI) was founded in 2009 by Dr. J.C. Matthews as a Kingdom conscious continuing education organization designed to supplement the traditional Biblical education provided by Bible colleges, seminaries and university, in addition to being a means by which ministers and lay persons alike could obtain a comprehensive stand alone study of the central message of scripture and Christ Himself – the Kingdom.
Traditionally, the study of the Kingdom has been confined to conferences or a very narrow perspective and space given it within a course on eschatology. Due to the breadth and significance of the Kingdom to the Bible message itself, these only serve to familiarize the student with the very beginnings and basics of God’s Kingdom. This is unfortunate given the centrality of the Kingdom to the historic, poetic, prophetic, redemptive and eschatological message of the Bible. The Kingdom is also the greater context and purpose for grace, faith, law, the gifts of the Holy Spirit and Salvation itself. A firm foundation and understanding of the Kingdom is necessary in order to effectively equip the church and its leadership to embrace its assignment and establish its identity in the world to which it is sent. We believe this is the reason Jesus specifically identified the “gospel of the Kingdom” as the message the church is to take to the world as a witness before Christ’s return (Matthew 24:14).
The IKI is designed to supplement the traditional Biblical education process, as well as, equip its students to not only understand the Kingdom, but to responsibly teach the Kingdom message themselves.
Progressive Curriculums: The IKI utilizes 3 progressive curriculum levels, that establishes a firm foundation for greater comprehension of the more complex aspects of the Kingdom.
