Academics at Tennessee Bible College

What makes Tennessee Bible College unique?

Here are 5 things we believe you’ll value about us:

1. Bible-Centered Education: Isn’t this really what it’s all about? We firmly believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and teach it accordingly. Our teachers are trained academically. They have years of experience in preaching and teaching. They love the Bible and instill that passion in others.

2. Christian Evidences: Want to boldly present proofs for the existence of God, the deity of Christ, and the inspiration of the Bible? We’ll show you how. We’ll also help you identify false philosophies that challenge these truths.

3. Balance of Historical & Contemporary Perspectives: Our classes combine lessons of the past with issues of today. We study church history as well as the history of philosophy because “there is no new thing under the sun” (Ecc. 1:9).

4. Practical Guidance & Experience: It is important for Christians, especially preachers, to understand people and get along with others. We stress the importance of common sense and a good attitude.

5. Local & Worldwide Vision: God commands all men everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30) and to have a love for evangelism, and that’s what we want for you. Take what you learn here and share it with the world!
