I am delighted to write this foreword to the website of Bethel Bible College. The College was started with a vision to equip and train young men and women for evangelistic and pastoral ministry. The word “Bethel” reminds us of the vision young Jacob had that night when he saw the angels ascending and descending on a ladder reaching to heaven (Gen. 28:10-22). The college, in addition to academic studies, also emphasizes spiritual experience and growth in personal devotion and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. The word “Bible” indicates the focus of the institution on the Scriptures, their understanding interpretation. I, on behalf of the Board of Governors, invite churches, congregations and Christian Org recommend and sponsor young people for training at this institution. This website gives you about the life and programs of the college and other necessary information. I solicit your prayers for Bethel Bible College.
Yours in His service,
