Our curriculum is centred around four key themes:
- The primary purpose and calling for every individual is to know God: their heavenly Father, their Saviour, Redeemer, Comforter, Helper, Friend and Lord.
- The core of our courses are designed specifically for this purpose, so that you can come to a greater knowledge of God in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- As well as courses that explore the character, nature and work of the Trinity, our other courses are designed to point you back to the importance of knowing God and developing your relationship with Him.
Knowing the Word
- The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself to us. It shows us who He is, how He relates to humanity, His purpose and plan throughout the ages and His steadfast love towards us. Ultimately, we see the revelation of God made flesh in Jesus Christ.
- The Word of God contains wisdom for every situation and circumstance we may face, every joy, pain and every season of life, because it is the counsel of God.
- At CBI, as well as every course being grounded in the Word of God, we have courses that explore specific books of the Bible in depth, and we also teach you how to read and study the Bible for yourself.
Knowing our Purpose
- The Bible contains God’s instructions for how we are to walk in the purpose He has ordained for us. Through our study of the Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit we can and will discover how to walk in God’s plan and serve His purpose for our lives.
- Many of our courses are designed to help you explore specific aspects of purpose, including the importance of being led by the Holy Spirit, walking in obedience and knowing your authority and position in Christ. These all result in a transformation of the heart, mind and hands as you apply God’s Word to your life.
- We also provide practical opportunities to apply the knowledge and understanding that you gain through study, with a variety of occasions and ministries within which to serve, learn and grow.
- God’s purpose for our lives involves us functioning in community. Developing relationships with others that are godly, honouring and edifying is crucial to us being able to fulfil God’s call on our lives and is an intrinsic part of walking in the footsteps of Jesus.
- At CBI, we want to equip you with the biblical understanding and practical skills to understand and walk in love towards those you do life with, including family, friends, colleagues and strangers. Through a variety of courses you will learn how to imitate Jesus, follow His instructions and shine the light He has given you to the world around you.
