BBC prepares you to succeed. Our approach to education is focused on providing biblically grounded general studies coupled with a solid core of theology and practical ministry courses.

Our students are educated for effective Christian leadership within the context of one of our four schools – Bible & Theology, Arts & Sciences, Global Ministries,and Education. In addition, various academic departments exist within each school.

School of Bible & Theology
The School of Bible & Theology helps students achieve excellence in biblical education. Instruction is based on the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible in the original manuscripts, and recognizes its authority in all areas of life. Professors train students to adopt the grammatical, historical, literal method of Biblical interpretation.

The School of Bible & Theology includes the Biblical Exposition, and Theology departments.
