1. Are you an accredited college?
Charis Bible College (CBC) is unaccredited. We are a practical training school. Many attend to answer a call from God and prepare for ministry. Others come just to develop their own personal relationship with the Lord. CBC offers the ideal environment for transformation, as your mind is renewed by the Word of God. For some, this commitment has restored their lives and their faith. For some, it has been the beginning of a new adventure with God. And for others, it has been the discovery of God's call on their lives. If God is calling you to CBC, be obedient and take the first step to fulfilling your God-given destiny.
2. Since Charis is an unaccredited college, what will I receive at the end of my 2nd year?
