Bethany Christian Bible College General Information


“All power is given unto Me in heaven and earth”
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, Io, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Amen.


BCBC had its beginning when the church began a systematic study of Evangelism. Emphasis was placed on effective methods of witnessing and also ministering to the needs of the whole person. These efforts were based upon Ephesians 4:12 which states “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” The purpose of the College is to teach the individual Christian witness to become more effective as a helping person in ministering to the spiritual, psychological and temporal needs within the congregation. An effort is also made to train each participant to help keep the Church body healthy and active in the service of God. From the meager beginning of one (1) Bible Class a teaching and training ministry has evolved which includes numerous Sunday School and Bible classes taught at the College.


  • To maintain an environment within which students can define and work to realize personal goals and their concern for others.
  • To create a people-centered academic community that accepts its students as individuals, nurtures their growth in critical and creative thinking and promotes understanding of their place in the natural, Christian and social world.
  • To provide students an opportunity to explore values and to accept responsibility for their beliefs and actions.
  • To provide services which will enable students to pursue further studies and graduate work.

 BCBC constantly seeks opportunities to enhance spiritual and academic excellence.  Certification was granted to BCBC in March 1993 from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACI) as a means of offering course work leading to Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).  CEU’s assist the staff of BCBC as well as staffs from other Christian schools to improve educational quality of teaching.




BCBC is an independent church-related institution of Christian heritage that offers programs in undergraduate and professional studies to a diverse student body.  The mission of BCBC is to equip students for the work of the ministry.  Furthermore, it provides higher education to assist students developing as ministers, leaders, teachers and witnesses for the Christian church and society.
