Cornerstone Bible Institute

What is CBI?

Cornerstone Bible Institute is a program intended for those who desire to dig deeper into Biblical Studies at a college level, without having to commit to full-time studies, or making great financial sacrifices. The program will allow for participants to take up to two classes a semester, in a three hour block style. Since the classes will be college level, the instruction will be lecture style with required reading, papers, and tests. Our goal is to make these classes both financially and academically accessible, while also pushing you to greater levels of understanding. We hope this is a blessing to you, as we seek to bless the community around us with believers who understand the Scriptures more fully.

Classes for the Fall 2022 semester will kickoff on Monday, September 12, and Thursday, September 15.

What Courses are Being Offered for Fall 2022?

Biblical Hermeneutics

Hermeneutics is the science and art of biblical interpretation. It is a science because it is guided by rules that work within a system. It is an art because the application of those rules takes skill and practice. The study of biblical hermeneutics is necessary because the goal of the biblical writers is to communicate God's unchanging truth. Thus, the reader must be able to accurately interpret the message of the sender, knowing that there is always a danger of miscommunication. A correct understanding of the hermeneutical process is the key to living a life that is pleasing before both God and man. If the truth of the message is not correctly understood, it will not be accurate when applied to our lives. Class offered Thursday 6:30-8:00 PM

Systematic Theology

Theology--from the Greek these, "god," and logia, "word" is the study of divine revelation in the Bible. We study theology because it provides a foundation for your philosophy and worldview, which in turn affects your heart, actions, and decisions in all situations. Class offered Monday 6:30-8:00 PM
