Woman with Bible

A Christian Education that helps you to fulfill the great Matthew 28 commission given to the disciples.

v. 18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

v. 19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

v. 20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The Church of Christ Bible Institute offers a three-year program leading to the Diploma. Because a firm foundation in the Bible is essential to meaningful Christian service, our Institute’s program is firmly rooted in the word of God. All students, whatever their area of specialization, major in the Bible. Each student will take a minimum of (36) credits in the Bible, studying the various books of the Old and New Testaments. Along with the Bible major, two minors provide specialized preparation for students entering the ministry as Pastors, Associate Pastors, Evangelists, Teachers, Missionaries and leaders in the various areas of church life.
