Life Pacific College: Established in 1923

Biblical Studies

The Biblical Studies program is designed to equip individuals with a deep understanding of the Bible, theological synthesis, and hermeneutical practices, to impart understanding of the value of the major fields of knowledge from a biblical framework, and to cultivate the desire and foundation necessary to be a lifelong learner. Students will attain the skills necessary for ministry to people inside and outside of the local church. They will learn to integrate education, spiritual life, and experience into a consistent lifestyle of personal spiritual growth and character that reflects Christian values.

This program is intended for those interested in gaining a strong biblical worldview, preparing to lead or teach in a variety of ministry contexts, or to pursue advanced studies in a multiple of disciplines.
