CCBI Curricula & Programs


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.



This program is designed to prepare the student for Christian ministry. Pastors, Evangelists, Associate Ministers, and those professing a call of God, will receive training in basic counseling, worship leadership, the preparation and delivery of sermons, and all other areas of ministerial service.
