At the beginning of every assignment or mission Christ gives, it resonates with His purpose, which includes His promise of guidance through the assignment and His plan to complete the assignment. This is what drives

ARIZE Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry and Bible College.

When one’s purpose, promise, and plan meet that of the purpose, promise, and plan of Christ, a progressive engine moves forward with energy that can only be received from on high.

In 2019 the purpose, promise, and plan for the Bible College, namely

Arize Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry and Bible College

began with the mission to train men and women in the Word of God who have been assigned to the anointings given by Christ in the Five-Fold Ministry, that is, of the apostle, the prophet, the evangelist, the pastor, and the teacher, according to Ephesians 4:11-16. The equipping of those who are called into those positions is our mission to continually train, develop, and educate biblically on the concept according to the plan of Christ and His doctrine.  Christ Himself is calling you to be an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, or teacher – even those who are anointed with any of the nine fruit of the Spirit, AFFMBC exists to serve you. The Holy Bible, our mission, vision, and values are the core of who we are, what we do, and how we perform our assignments.


Arize Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry and Bible College creates an interactive experience between student and facilitator in the learning, training, and developing process, involving reflections in course studies focusing on giving and receiving feedback. Additionally, our Facilitators create a safe and secure learning environment for students, which decreases stress as they walk on their journey or course studies. The facilitator challenges each student to push to the limits of their God-given gift to be the best and give their best in their assignment, usually leading to self-sufficiency and a better learning outcome.

A Word from the

Founder and President


“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:”  John 15:16


       All of you are about to embark on the journey of your life. There is nothing like receiving a divine calling. God has called you to make an impact on His world. Now that you have accepted your calling and have been designated by your Senior Pastor or Leader as one who is ready for the next step in your journey, you must prepare to take an oral and written test given by either a Dean, Associate Dean of a facilitator of Arize Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry and Bible College. Many will say I don’t need to take a test to know that I am called by Christ.

This is true, but for every man or woman God called in Scripture, He brought them through training and then tested them before they began their journey.

                Moses was raised in the courts of Pharaoh, then trained in the wilderness of Midian for forty (40) years before he led the children of Israel out of bondage. He had lessons and exams all along the way. The burning bush, the rod becoming a serpent, and his hand becoming leprous were all lessons and tests that moved Moses to his divine destiny. As he passed these tests God moved him into his destiny.

                David was anointed King around the age of twelve (12). Before he became king he had tests with, lions, bears, and Goliath. After David passed these tests God made him king. Just like Moses and David you too must endure the test.

                Some tests God Himself will give, and some other tests ARIZE Institute of the Five-Fold and Bible College will administer. 

We will train, educate, and develop your god-given talent or gifting as seen in Ephesians 4:11-16, in the Holy Bible, maturing you along the way to be ready to equip others to do great work for Christ.

Bishop Dr. Zella Berry Case

Core Values

We value the authority of Scripture. We believe that the truth is absolute and that it is recorded in the Holy Scriptures. The sixty-six books of the Holy Bible are our authority. We teach and apply the Scripture in the Holy Bible and use them in our lives as individuals and complete values as an institution. The authority of Scripture is our initial value.

It is what we trust for guidance and guidance of our students, affiliates, and faculty. 

We value Jesus Christ as the Supreme Being because Jesus is the Lord of the Universe and our Savior. We are committed to knowing, worshiping, and following Him, who is our resurrected King and we are equally committed to the supremacy of His purpose to disciple the world using His tools and individuals (those who are appointed by Him) as seen in Ephesians 4:11-16. Additionally, our curriculum, policies, and programs of study reflect the predominance of Jesus Christ.

We value educational integrity, and because we value that we are committed to the authority of Scripture, all of which is to glorify Christ.

We value multi-ethnicity. No race is treated differently because all of mankind according to Scripture is made in God’s image. Because this is so, we serve a multi-ethnic community as a Bible college in Mebane, North Carolina, and prayerfully this community will grow, reach further, and move towards a culture of God-fearing believers that seek to experience through biblical education and biblical training the glory of sharing the "Good News" to others. 

The Faculty, administration, and curriculum reflect our mutual commitments to Biblical integrity and multi-ethnicity.

The men and women who serve the ARIZE Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry and Bible College are proven in the crucible of ministry. Our degrees combine both the theory and the practical reality of service so that graduates can effectively disciple others.

We value dependence on God through prayer and supplication. Our consistency in our prayers expresses our dependency upon God and a belief that God responds to prayer and answers our needs in His timing. In our efforts to serve God, we choose also to depend upon Him to bring about change in us and for us as we pray.
