The first college of the Bible in Nigeria was started in 1954 on twenty beautiful acres in the village of Ukpom. NCBC is hailed as the flagship of Christian education in that nation. The school is actually five years older than its overseeing organization, African Christian Schools.
Since 1954 programs offered on the campus have varied. The “tried and true” training of ministers is a constant throughout the years. NCBC currently has three program tracks for the students.
Diploma in Theology
This Diploma in Theology is offered as the standard preaching school certificate. This diploma has been the standard for churches in Nigeria and West Africa for decades. This program is a rigorous 3-year program.
Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies
This accredited program is offered through an affiliation with the University of Calabar which allows NCBC to offer this valuable degree in Nigeria. This degree is good for students who are seeking a more challenging program than the Diploma and who may want to continue on in their studies.
Bachelor of Arts in Religious Education
This accredited program is offered through an affiliation with the University of Calabar which allows NCBC to offer this valuable degree. With this degree, graduates can seek employment in the public sector teaching. This will be a great blessing to the church as it will provide trained teachers and preachers, but also the ability for that minister to gain salary from the public sector and not depend upon the church.
