The Biblical Studies Program is 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 vocation, ministry, employment, and further education.  From its founding in 1975 through the spring semester of 1989, CCBC issued only the Certificate of Completion. CCBC began issuing the Associate of Theology and Bachelor of Biblical Studies degrees in the fall semester of 1989. Currently, CCBC offers the following revised degree programs:
