The Department of Biblical Studies bases their instruction upon the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Word of God in the original manuscripts and upon its authority in all areas of the Christian life. They also understand that human abilities cannot cope with life apart from the Holy Spirit’s Divine enabling, so they seek to correlate and integrate the Bible into all areas of life, assuming that the student who relies upon God’s help will be successful at San Diego Christian College.

From its beginning, the goal of the College has been to send dedicated men and women to the major fields of Christian service with a zeal and ability to present effectively the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. Since the local church is without question God’s agency for the accomplishing of this task in this age, it is the aim of this department to develop pastoral leadership with a well-rounded experience in every essential phase of the Lord’s work through a local church.
