Belfast Bible College ~ BA (Hons) Theology

We want to equip you as a 21st Century Disciple; one who has the skills to serve God more effectively, the knowledge to understand the Bible deeply and the ability to communicate the Gospel of Jesus to individuals and communities both locally and across the world.
In our rapidly changing world, we are continually presented with opportunities to interact with a diverse range of people. In the 21st Century, we increasingly have to interact with those that do not hold the same worldview and principles as we do. The challenge is how we understand views different from our own and then present the truth of Scripture in a way that is understood and meaningful to those hearing it.
The opportunities for serving Jesus in this century are continually developing and changing. We want to equip you with the ability to encounter new situations with knowledge, maturity and Christian character. We want to help you develop as a critical thinker who can communicate clearly, a practitioner with the ability to engage meaningfully and a disciple committed to following Jesus.
