What to Expect
This course gives students a good understanding of the inductive approach of Bible study, equipping them with tools for life. We model and motivate students to incorporate the scriptures into other facets of their life such as evangelism worship and intercession. The goal of this course is to see the way God revealed himself throughout time, and to have a more in depth understanding of his character, nature and love
By the end of the program, you will have read the entire Bible and study it in chronological order. You will receive a historical background on the books (who wrote it, intended target audience, and its cultural context), giving you a broader picture of the book, and time line of both the New Testament and Old Testament. Our hope and aim is to take all the learnt tools and information and see its relevance for our personal lives today through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
We will have a variety of experienced teachers coming to share and impart wisdom and truth.

Tour at The British Museum
The British Museum contains over 8 million artifacts of which only 80,000 are displayed. 1% of every corner of the earth is represented here and spans across most of, if not every, period of time.
The Bible is not separate from the world's history, but deeply connected in a myriad of ways. From the archaic yet advanced Mesopotamia, Egypt the powerful and ancient empire, all the way to the effective but domineering Roman Empire. During the school, there will be a guided tour through the museum which exhibits many objects and artifacts running parallel to both the Old and New Testament. One will find just how interwoven Christianity is with the history of the world.
Besieging at Lachish
Through the CBCC, I finally immersed into the Bible like I had never done. The truth it holds changed more in my life in three months than all of my efforts throughout my entire Christian life before. His truth has pierced deeply into my Spirit, heart and mind and produced transformation to the point I hardly recognize myself now. While I’ve never felt like more of an unkempt, broken mess in some aspects, I’ve also never felt freer and more aligned to His truth and love and who He says I am while having the clearest image of Him I’ve ever had. His Word is and must be the foundation of our Christian lives; nothing else compares or satisfies.
Taking the step to dive deep into the word of God, learning about the different tools and the historical context truly has been a game changer for me. God did amazing things during this time. And even though it was a challenging season it also was a season full of growth and fun times.
BCC was time well spent. Feasting on the word of God from morning till evening changed me. At times it was tough,
but I was brought closer to the Father and he gave me lots of joy!
I was always on the search for truth. What the world presented as truth never lasted, only through the Bible I found the one Truth. Walking in this truth give me a fulfilment in life that I never had before. It was an amazing intense time spend to get to know God
