Bachelor of Christian Studies

Canadian Baptist Theological College

Canadian Baptist Theological College (CBT) is committed to providing high quality teaching in a warm, supportive environment both for students well on their way to Christian service and for those just beginning to discover who they are in Christ. Gaining knowledge, developing skills, and being shaped in Christian character are all part of the experience at CBT.

I would recommend this school to a friend.
My time here has prepared me for Christian ministry.

High School Dual Enrolment Program

Canadian Baptist Theological College offers dual enrolment to grade 11 and grade 12 high school students. These students can be in public school, private school, or homeschooled. Thus, upon completion of college courses, students may receive both high school and college credits.

What's Your Next Step?

I’m here because they took the time to get to know me, to pray for me, and to find out about me before I even came here, and I’m so grateful for it . . . I came here and God really changed my heart.

Program Options

Canadian Baptist Theological College offers two fully accredited degree programs. The 4-year Bachelor of Christian Studies and the 3-year Bachelor of Christian Ministry.

Students interested in shorter programs of study have several options. Depending on whether they are seeking ministry preparation or simply wanting to study the Bible and the Christian faith, they might choose one of the 2-year diplomas. 

High school graduates looking for a 1-year gap program will benefit from the Samuel Program. 

Mature students (22 years and older) may apply for the 24 credit hour Certificate of Christian Studies. 

Additionally, qualifying grade 10 and grade 11 high school students can now take courses through the CBT Dual Enrolment program (see below for details).

Because of the integrated design of our academic programs, students can easily transfer between them without losing hard-earned credits. All of the college programs have three basic components:

  1. The first of these, biblical and theological studies, provides a solid grounding for students’ faith.
  2. The second, general studies, exposes students to the broad range of knowledge necessary for well-rounded leaders in today’s world. Integrating biblical and general studies equips students in developing a biblical worldview and establishes a frame of reference for living out their Christian faith.
  3. Depending on the program, the third component consists either of applied ministry skills (BCMin) or a range of Christian studies (BCS).


The common thread running through all three of these components is spiritual formation, the development of Christ-like character. As followers of Christ, it is essential that we bring every aspect of life under His lordship.
