Bible College vs. Traditional College - What’s the Difference?

If you have questions about the difference between attending Bible college or a traditional college, Calvary Bible College is here to help! We’ll outline the significant differences between each, giving you the opportunity to decide for yourself which college best suits your needs.

Core Curriculum

Are we being challenged?

Last update on March 4, 2015.

One of the Bibles I use to study is the Stewardship Study Bible, which was given to me. I am challenged as I read through the passages and then read the commentary sections. In reading Hebrews 10, especially 10:24, "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works" I was challenged. The NIV uses "spur" instead of "provoke." Although I have ridden horses, but am not adept at it, I do understand what a spur can do to a horse when implanted in their hide. They move and sometimes quickly. 

We can ask some of ...

Where Is Your Heart?

Last update on Oct. 27, 2014.

Too long of a time since my last posting.  Please forgive me for that.  I left with the verse, Luke 12:34, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  We can flip the verse and say, “For where your heart is, there will your treasure be also.”  Where is your heart today? 

Philippians 4:6-7 states, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”  Don ...

Where is Your Treasure?

Last update on Aug. 14, 2014.

I write this with a heavy heart because a good friend of my wife and I, Chris, was in a bad motorcycle accident last night.  The doctors operated in an attempt to save his life, but they were unable to do so and he died, leaving behind a wife and five children.  Chris was 40.  I travelled with Chris on 5 short-term mission trips, and we had many discussions about life, evangelism, children, giving, sports, and on and on.  I will miss that, as Chris was like another son to me and my wife. Why do I begin with that ...
