There’s still time!

There’s still time – but not much – to sign up for one of the new modules which start this week – Spiritual Disciplines, Evangelism, John’s Letters, Doctrine of Scripture or World Religions and Cults.

The Letters of John

Most Christians are probably familiar with John’s Gospel and his Revelation but probably less so with his three letters which come almost at the end of our New Testament. Yet these three short letters have so much with which to instruct and guide us today. Each term we try and run one module that is more devotional as well as teaching, and John’s Letters are our choice for the summer term, so if you would like some online devotional fellowship…

The Bible

Here’s a reminder of another of the subjects we will be teaching in our new summer term which starts next week The Bible makes some remarkable claims for itself.  It is important, therefore, that we have the right attitude towards the Bible and know as much about it as we possibly can. All these questions and more we will address over ten two-hour classes on Wednesday afternoons, from 2.00 – 4.00pm, starting on April 17th. The classes will be held…

Is This Your Question As Well?

One of the questions we get asked most frequently is along the lines of: “I want to take part in this virtual classroom and study this subject but I am not free at the time it is being held. What can I do?” Our answer is simple – because all our virtual classrooms are recorded and notes provided, you can still register and then watch the recording and follow the notes at a time of your choosing.

Spiritual Disciplines

“The spiritual disciplines are those practices found in Scripture that promote spiritual growth among believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are habits of devotion, habits of experiential Christianity that have been practiced by God’s people since biblical times.” (Don Whitney) Part of the very DNA of EBC is that we are committed not just to information, i.e. the teaching of good solid biblical truth, but to transformation, seeing that truth mature and equip Christians for effective, God glorifying life and…

Missiology

The important topic of world mission is the subject of a new format of module we are making available over the coming weeks. This will be a guided reading module, starting on Tuesday 16th April and to be concluded by the end of June. There will be extensive notes, set readings and probing questions, with periodic contact with the course guide. Led by experienced cross-cultural missionary, Dr Keith Ferdinando, the module will focus primarily on exploring the biblical foundations of…

New Testament Overview

With just a week until the new term starts here at EBC, over the next few days we will be posting reminders of the subjects that will be taught over the coming weeks. And remember that because all our teaching is done in virtual classrooms over zoom, wherever you live in the world you can join in and benefit from some inspirational and profitable teaching and fellowship. On Monday nights, from 7.00 – 9.00, College Principal, John Brand, will be…

Summer Term at EBC

Today, March 21st, is the last day of this term but everything is already in place for the summer term classes which begin on Monday 15th April. Here is a summary overview programme, and details of individual subjects can be found on the NEWS page of this website.

Missiology

The aim of this module is to think biblically about some missiological issues and to consider the response to the biblical missionary mandate, both as an individual believer and also as a Christian leader. We will be looking at the biblical definition and basis of mission and will provide a biblical, theological, historical and practical consideration of God’s universal redemptive plan and purpose.  Led by experienced missionary, Dr Keith Ferdinando, this module will be take the form of guided reading…

World Religions and Cults

Around 85% of the world’s population is religious. With a multitude of religious belief and practice, what makes Christianity unique? In this module we will examine some of the major religions and cults in our society today. After a brief introduction to each group, we will take a look at their core beliefs, comparing and contrasting them to the beliefs of biblical Christianity. Finally, we will consider how we might engage members of these groups with the gospel. The class…

New Testament Overview

Over 10 Monday evenings between Easter and Summer we’ll work our way from Matthew to Revelation – book by book – becoming familiar with the structure and theme of each book, and seeing how it contributes to the storyline of the Bible as a whole.  The class will be held on Monday evenings, between 7 and 9, starting on April 15th, and will be held on zoom, so that wherever you live you will be able to take part. You…

When We Say ANYWHERE….We Mean ANYWHERE!

At EBC we often say that students can study with us ANYWHERE in the world, thanks to zoom; and when we say ANYWHERE we really do mean that. In recent weeks we have had students zooming in from a van, from hotel rooms, from a railway station in Morocco, and next week one of our students is going to join his class from Cyprus where he will be on his honeymoon! Such is the dedication of our students, but also,…

Spiritual Formation

At the heart of EBC’s raison d’etre is the desire to see men and women transformed into the likeness of Christ through the ministry of the Word of God. That’s why our module on Spiritual Formation is one of the most important subjects we teach. We have delayed the starting date for the module from tomorrow to next Tuesday, January 16th, so that gives you several more days to sign up. “…the process of being conformed to the image of Christ by…

There’s Still Time!

The new College term starts this week, but there’s still time to sign up for one or more of the modules we are teaching over the coming weeks. We can still accept registrations for: Tuesdays: Wednesdays: Thursdays:
