WHO WE ARE
Calvary Chapel Bible College | Costa Mesa is a Discipleship and Bible training ministry of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, California. Our desire is to encourage Christians to grow deeper and go further in his and her relationship with Jesus. The Christian life is meant to be progressive; not static or stagnant. 2 Peter 3:18 says, “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” With this in mind, we aim at providing a Christ-centered and Bible-saturated environment that is conducive for both learning and serving. Our classes, taught by Calvary Chapel pastors and teachers, cover a wide range of subjects – from Bible Survey to verse-by-verse, in-depth Bible-book studies; from Biblical Theology to Biblical languages; from Church History to Christian Missions. Each course is designed to teach students to “rightly divide the word of truth”, and to equip them for “the work of the ministry”.
Besides receiving God’s word, we believe students need to share it with others in loving and practical ways. This is an important part of the learning and growing process. For this reason, we seek to provide students with opportunities to “live-out the Gospel” in both community and commission. In community, Christians are interacting with Christians inside and outside the classroom. Our desire is to see God develop these acquaintances into strong and healthy relationships that display real Christian fellowship. For this reason, we schedule special events and activities that bring people together for a great time of fellowship and fun.
In commission, we are a part of fulfilling Christ’s global mandate: “Go…and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:19-20).” We are on mission, proclaiming the Good News about God’s Son and salvation to the world. This is in the DNA of CCBC | Costa Mesa, so we encourage students to participate in local and cross-cultural outreaches. In connection with Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, students can be a part of street evangelism, convalescent home ministry, homeless ministry, Beachside Summerfest, Vision, U.K. CreationFest, and much more.
CCBC | Costa Mesa is a great place to invest a part of your life as either a full-time or part-time student. We are certain that the time you spend here devoted to God’s word will result in lifelong dividends. We invite you to study God's word, grow in your relationship with Jesus, and be on mission with us. We look forward to serving you here at CCBC | Costa Mesa.
