Where does your journey begin? Where it should – with the Bible. The Bible is central in both name and curriculum at Lancaster Bible College. The Bible, the written Word of God, is the divinely inspired source for truth, which holds his instructions for living. Our mission is to encourage you to learn the Bible thoroughly and to live according to its principles – to develop a biblical worldview. With this perspective, you will be energized and confident to serve God in your chosen ministry.
To help you gain this perspective, LBC’s undergraduate curriculum has been designed to integrate content from the Bible, theology, and the arts and sciences, across every professional area of study. This means that what you learn in a particular course doesn’t happen in isolation – there is a connection between the coursework in your major and the curriculum from the Bible and theology department.
The goal of our Bible-integrated academic major is to equip you to become a devoted Christian leader. With your training and knowledge, you will know how to use your head, heart, and hands to make a difference in the world.
