Calvary Chapel Bible College

Calvary Chapel Bible College is an unaccredited Bible college affiliated with Calvary Chapel. Its main campus is in Murrieta, California, but it also has at least 70 extension schools throughout the United States. Two of these offer full programs with a diverse amount of courses and teachers. There are also 20 extension campuses outside the United States as well as two in Hawaii. These campuses differ from the schools in that they offer room and board. Seven of these campuses are considered to have a full program. cite web | title=CCBC Extension Campuses | url= | accessdate=2006-04-16 ]


Founded in 1975, the college was originally a "short, intensive study program" (Calvary Chapel Bible School in Twin Peaks California) cite web | title=CCBC Main Campus | url= | accessdate=2006-04-16 ] with a tape-based curriculum that consisted primarily of sermons by Calvary Chapel founder Chuck Smith, but it now is a full program leading to two- and four-year degrees. [David Denna, [ The History of the Calvary Chapel Movement and its Implications for Church Planting] , Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, May 7, 2001.] Certificates of completion are awarded to students who are either not prepared for college-level work or who have not completed high school. The college is unaccredited and says it wishes to remain that way so as not to "compromise the integrity of the vision or direction the Lord has given" it. cite web | title=CCBC Accreditation | url= | accessdate=2006-04-16 ]


An associate in theology degree is offered to high school graduates, and bachelor of Biblical studies degrees are given to students who have completed an associate's degree or higher from another college. cite web | title=CCBC Undergraduate Program | url= | accessdate=2006-04-16 ]

No matter which degree or certificate is earned, the course requirements are the same. Required courses are Genesis, Romans, Acts, Revelation, hermeneutics, apologetics, Biblical missions, and church history (totaling 20 units). The remaining requirements are twelve units of elective Bible classes, twelve units of listening to Chuck Smith's "Through the Bible" series, four units of practical service, and 32 units of other electives. The total number of semester units required to graduate is 80. cite web | title=CCBC Graduation Worksheet | url= | accessdate=2006-04-16 | format=PDF ]
