Why You Need a Bible College Experience

We're often tempted to think that only "spiritual" people go to Bible College, reasoning that it means you would have to leave everything and work for God.

CDMBC believes otherwise. Here's why:

  1. JESUS TRAINED HIS DISCIPLES
    First of all, Jesus spent about three years giving his twelve disciples intensive training. They were with him day and night, Mk. 3:13-15; Lk. 6:12,13. Jesus did not only teach them; He trained and supervised them to do the same works he was doing: preaching and healing the sick (Matt. 10:1,7,8). When the Jewish leaders saw the boldness of Peter and John and knew they were unlearned and ignorant men, they took knowledge that they had been with Jesus (Acts 4:13). The weekly Sunday church service is insufficient and too general to help you know intimately the only true God and Jesus Christ He has sent (Jn. 17:3). Jesus wants you to draw closer to him so he can train you too.
  2. YOU CANNOT EFFECTIVELY WORK FOR GOD WITHOUT TRAINING
    Secondly, Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few.” (Matt. 10:37,38). The only way to increase the number of quality labourers -- after praying for more -- is by training more church members. If we want more doctors, we build more medical schools; if we want more teachers, we build more Teacher Training Colleges. 80% of today’s church membership are pew warmers. They do not know their gifts and calling. They sit and watch a few others do ministry. Unless we multiply our training base for more Christian workers, we are dreaming when we imagine that labourers for the harvest will suddenly emerge and increase. To teach, mentor, counsel and minister to others, you yourself need to be taught, mentored and trained (Lk. 6:40).
  3. FOR RECOGNIZING AND REFUTING FALSE DOCTRINE
    Thirdly, today’s world is more complex and false doctrines and deviations are multiplying daily. The average believer is bombarded by cults and the occult on  the phone, internet, Whatsapp, TV and what-have-you. Jesus told a whole sect, “You do err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22:29). Thus, it is in your own interest to master the basic and major bible doctrines of your faith in order to detect deviations. This demands some training.
  4. FOR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL GROWTH AND MATURITY
    Fourthly, are you satisfied with your growth in Christ over the past years? Are you becoming more Christlike? Is your Bible study feeding your soul adequately? Is your prayer and fasting life increasing? What about soulwinning and disciplemaking, are you making headway? Dissatisfaction with your spiritual growth ought to drive you to a good Bible school where you can be challenged to grow and mature spiritually.
  5. FOR FINISHING THE TASK OF THE GREAT COMMISSION
    Fifthly, Jesus commanded the church to make disciples of all ethno-linguistic people groups, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all he has commanded us. Matt. 28:19. How would you feel if you were in the shoes of Jesus Christ and 2,000 years after your command 41% of the world today is unreached by the gospel? How can the over 2 billion hear without a preacher? How can they preach except they are trained and sent? Rom.10:14,15.
  6. FOR THE BUSY PROFESSIONAL WHO WANTS TO WORK FOR GOD IN THE WORKPLACE
    Finally, there is the case of the busy professional who wants to work for God. Work schedules prevent you from a three-year residential Bible College, but you may feel strongly called to work for your Lord in the marketplace. Your profession is your parish, but you need some amount of training to have a cutting edge ministry. If you continue like this, all your life will be spent just laboring for food that perishes without eternal investment. You can be equipped. You can become a disciplemaker, church planter and Christian leader at home, in your neighbourhood, and your workplace.
