School of Biblical Studies

Upcoming School: September 2017 – Apply Today!

The SBS is a nine-month course focusing on all 66 books of the Bible. We use the inductive approach to study, which teaches the students to observe what the text says, to interpret the text through the eyes of the original reader, and how to apply the timeless truths to their own lives. In effect, allowing the living Word of God speak for itself.

The SBS will equip you to study God’s Word for yourself, while challenging you to take what you have learned and give it to others. The SBS will enable you to understand the “big picture” of the Bible, laying a solid foundation for your life ministry. We trust that the SBS here in Muizenberg will be a place where the Spirit of God will come and transform your life while bringing healing, renewal, greater understanding of the nature and character of God, His Word and His purposes. It is our hope that this time will stir up within you a new vision and passion for reaching the nations with the true Gospel of God.

There is an outreach offered through the Titus Project at the completion of the nine months. This is a twelve-week program that includes training on teaching and preaching, instruction on the inductive method, as well as presentation skills. The focuses of these outreaches are Cape Town and other areas in Africa that struggle to get Bible teaching. The outreach is a fantastic opportunity to give out what you have been gaining during the school. The ministries you will serve in this time are long term and ongoing. This gives students the opportunity to return on staff full-time both in the classroom and the field.

Come and join us as we walk through the Bible together!
