Who We Are
The Greek Bible College is an institution serving Greek evangelical churches and is based in Pikermi of Attica, Greece. Our aim is to educate and equip our students through a high level of academic teaching, through the opportunities that we offer for practical ministry as well as for dynamic character formation in the Christian environment of the student and teacher community.
In our college we train people from various denominational backgrounds so that our students are given many opportunities to broaden their horizons and learn from each other.
The Greek Bible College encourages and seeks dialogue and cooperation with the denominations of all Christian dogmas, because it maintains the belief that despite the dogmatic differences between Christians throughout the world and history, sincere believers who solely rely on the person of Jesus Christ for their salvation is the Body of Christ, which is not defined or limited by any dogma but remains under the judgment of the heart-knowing God. However, the training offered by the Greek Book College specifically serves the evangelical churches that traditionally belong to Protestantism.
Our vision is to inspire, train and equip persons with hearts of service so that they can participate in the development and progress of the Christian churches in Greece and throughout the world, to the glory of God.
Our mission is...
To inspire our students with the value of Christian thought, the virtue of Christian character and the vision of worldwide Christian witness and action...
To equip our students with tools for interpreting Holy Scripture and understanding historical and contemporary Christian doctrine and theological thought...
To train our students in the skills of communicating the message of Holy Scripture and the Christian faith, as well as of the pastoral care of communities of faith...
... in order to prepare persons who will serve Christian churches through pastoral ministry, preaching, teaching, counseling, mission, church planting and development, and any other Christian witness and action for the benefit of humanity and the glory of God.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
As is clear from the above, the Greek Bible College is part of the tradition of the historic dogmas drawn up during the first centuries of the ecumenical Christian Church as these are expressed in the Nicene Creed.
The College belongs to the Evangelical tradition, but no particular system of theology dominates the class teaching. The Evangelical faith is taught in an environment of academic freedom on the basis of tolerance and respect for the views of every student and teacher and their respective denominations.
Controversial issues are handled with an appreciation of different views held by various believers. Extreme positions or emphases which cause divisions among students and teachers are avoided. Theological dialogue is encouraged only if it promotes and cultivates true unity among believers in Christ and is conducted with peaceful motives in order to edify; not dismiss or exclude.
The College trains students in biblical or theological subjects to serve the church and Christian ministry both in Greece and rest of the world. Our confession is in line with that of most interdisciplinary Bible Colleges around the world.
