Welcome to Northern California Bible College Online.

Northern Calif. Bible College began in 1971 as an effort to prepare those who came to Christ through the Jesus People revival of the early 70s. Throughout the past four decades numerous changes have been made to adapt to the current needs for solid biblical information. Today courses are available in nearly every format--live classrooms, online, distance learning (DVD & CDs), & MP3. The school has since expanded into five locations, and hosts a long list of graduates involved in both part and full time ministry (see Graduates of NCBC).

Some have taken advantage of the California State Authorization (BPPE) and transferred into seminary to pursue advanced degrees in ministry and theological studies at places like Fuller Seminary, Kings College, GTU, Rice University, Gordan Conwell University, and Simpson University.

NCBC is in the process of pursuing full accreditation with TRACS (Transnational Association of Christian Colleges & School). Once approved this will allow students to receive federal funding.

  • The Book of Proverbs has a unique ability to pierce right to the heart of the issue. The wide variety of subjects include proper planning, lending money, raising children, marriage, the work ethic, and anger management, just to name a few. Having studied this book, we become better able to enter each of life's many challenges.

  • This course will concentrate upon Moses the man, the servant whom God used to lead Israel out of Egypt and bring into the Promised Land.  Most of the Book of Exodus will be covered, including segments from Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy that focus upon personal incidents in the life of Moses.  Throughout our journey we will concentrate upon understanding how Moses, through God’s help, overcame the struggles, temptations, and adversities associated with leadership. 

  • One cannot fully appreciate his or her salvation through Christ without understanding the Book of Romans. The course attempts to explain subjects such as justification, adoption, predestination, grace, and faith. The study also includes insights into God's plan for Israel, the seven motivational gifts of ministry, and the circumstances surrounding the church at Rome.

  • The Book of Genesis contains the beginning of each of the great themes of the Bible.  The very roots of the Christian life emerge through a careful examination of original sin, Abraham’s walk of faith, and the trials of Jacob and Joseph.  Genesis also serves as the beginning history book of all mankind, rehearsing the creation, the flood, the dividing of the earth, and the beginning of the Hebrew people.

  • The course will provide a detailed study of the life of Christ through the reading of the four Gospels.  The student will gain a basic knowledge of the major events in Jesus' earthly ministry.  The complete course will cover two quarters.  The first half will address the life of Jesus up through the Galilean ministry.  The second half of the course covers the life of Christ from the later Judean ministry through His Ascension.

  • The Book of Acts shouts the excitement of an early Church alive with the mission to evangelize the world.  Through this course we will relive the drama of apostolic leadership in the heat of revival, persecution, and converting the multitudes.  Keys to church growth will also be analyzed.
