Programme Highlights

Testimonies and Introduction to SBC Programmes

Trial Classes

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed church operations and community life drastically. Despite the easing of measures, things will never be the same.

We not only have to adapt to the new norm in our lives, but also the way we do church and engage believers and non-believers alike. With everything increasingly digitised, how can leaders help members to continue to be Biblically grounded, yet able to engage with differing viewpoints amicably; or to regain hope, and be vibrant and contagious in their faith?

Perhaps you are thinking, “How should the church go from here?” or  “How can I contribute to the greater work of God?”

One way is through a holistic theological training at Singapore Bible College that is Christ-centred, Bible-based, Church-oriented, Missions-directed and Context-relevant. Come join our Open House to find out more about seminary training!  May God’s kingdom come and His will be done in your life!

If you are keen to explore God’s calling in your life, please register online with us by 07 September 2022. For enquiries, you may also drop us an email at events@sbc.edu.sg.

We look forward to meeting you on campus.
