Bible & Theology Department

Providing instruction in the Bible, theology and proper hermeneutics

The Bible & Theology Department seeks to equip Christian men and women for life and ministry through the instruction of the Bible, theology and proper hermeneutics. To accomplish this purpose, the department prepares students to know the Bible intimately through several in-depth courses.

Academic Programs

LBC offers students the option of pursuing their bachelor or associate degree through the traditional on-campus college experience, online OR through evening in-class options at Lancaster, Philadelphia or Washington, D.C. through the Adult Education program. The Biblical Studies tracks allow students with the flexibility to choose courses from various departments, while also providing the same core Bible & Theology and Arts & Sciences courses as every LBC major. These options are ideal for those who wish to go into missions or ministry, while also equipping graduates with biblical knowledge for whatever field they may choose.


Undergraduate Degrees
Seminary & Graduate Degrees

The Bible & Theology masters are offered in both an online OR hybrid format. PhD is offered in the hybrid format.
