Your Options At LBC

What Does God Want to Do With Your Life?

The Answer is Something Amazing.

God gave you a unique set of gifts. Now, He is giving you the opportunity to use them. What could be more amazing than that?

Meeting You Where You Are.

Maybe you haven’t discovered your true gifts yet, or you aren’t sure how God is calling you to use them. That’s OK – at Lancaster Bible College, we support and advise you as you discern and clarify God’s calling.

Perhaps God has already set you on a clear path, and you’re looking to deepen your knowledge and sharpen your skills. That’s great, too – we’re here to encourage, support, and strengthen you in your vocation and in your faith.

Education That Transforms

At LBC, the purpose of biblical education is not to transmit information to you but to transform your life.

While knowing more things may be good for you, learning to think and live with a biblical worldview is what really makes a difference in your life and in the world.

God’s Word is woven into everything we do at LBC. Whether you’re learning about theology or working on a group project on business administration, our high regard of Scripture is “baked-in” to everything we do.

Preparation to Live Out Your Calling

When students graduate from Lancaster Bible College, they leave with a clearer sense of God’s direction for their lives and are equipped to live out that calling. How do we do it? What’s our secret? Our secret is no secret – it’s in our name. Prayerfully spending time with the Bible allows God to reveal himself and His will to us.

So that’s what we do here. As our professors and advisers teach you the knowledge and skills you need, they also guide you in seeking God through studying His Word. We really do believe that the Word of the Lord endures forever (1 Pet. 1:25). Scripture has the power to speak into our lives and change us for the better.

An Experience Rooted in a Biblical Worldview

You don’t have to go to college to read the Bible, of course. So what makes studying the Bible at Lancaster Bible College special?

Two students working together on a project.

Our focus, all the time – in the classroom, in chapel, in athletics and activities – is on learning and living a biblical worldview. That means we care deeply about the answers to these questions:

  • What does the Bible say about not only God but also about the people you encounter in your life?
  • What does the Bible teach us about the nature of knowledge?
  • What can we learn from the Bible about right and wrong?
  • When we wonder what the future holds, what does the Bible tell us?

We don’t address those questions from the comfort of a tidy ivory tower. We address them in the context of our lives, the world today, and our studies. An education from Lancaster Bible College is built upon the foundation of God’s Word, with all its power to transform our minds, our hearts, and our lives.

The Purpose of a Bible Education

At Lancaster Bible College, we educate students to think and live a Christian worldview, but it doesn’t end there. Our mission is also for LBC students and graduates to proclaim Christ in the world by serving Him in the Church and society.

You will find LBC graduates all over the world – in churches, mission organizations, nonprofits, businesses, schools, communities, and homes.
