CCBC’s two-year Biblical Studies programs are designed to help students know God more deeply and be equipped to serve Him by means of a thorough, well-rounded, and prayerful study of His Word–the Bible. This is intended to provide students with a knowledge of God’s general will for their lives and a foundation for all aspects of their future, including their family life, vocation, ministry, employment, and further education. Graduating students from these programs will demonstrate their learning through summaries covering every passage of Scripture, comprehensive exams and papers on various topics of Christian theology, and personal, evaluated involvement in service to others including at least one evangelistic outreach. As of 2018, CCBC offers the following degree programs.
