Philosophy of Education Statement

Christ Bible College is a Christian liberal arts institution, using biblically-centered curricula and co-curricular programs to educate maturing disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. We affirm and teach that:

  • The Holy Bible provides the authoritative base of our curricula, and that each academic discipline must be evaluated from a biblical perspective. That which is in harmony with the Word of God is truth and that which contradicts it is in error. We exercise thoughtful Christian liberty where the Scripture permits it.
  • There is no dichotomy between the sacred and secular; we treat the pursuit of education as an act of worship that honors and glorifies God.
  • The goal of education is to prepare the whole person. We seek to instill in our students the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for their chosen profession, while cultivating their spiritual growth, strengthening their moral character, and developing their abilities as citizens and leaders.

Christ Bible College operates as a ministry under the Florida nonprofit corporation status of Riverbend Community Church.  CBC is a religious institution providing advanced education through the local church.  Its degree program is designed solely for religious purposes.
