Training in the truth that leads to transformation! Incorporated in 1976 as Houston Bible Institute, the College of Biblical Studies (CBS) began offering classes in 1979. Since our first class, we have lived out our mission of providing a biblically based education that embraces all ethnicities and strives to equip our students with an academic and spiritual foundation needed to lead their communities, churches and families.
CBS believes we must tackle this challenge head-on by meeting the educational, spiritual and social needs of Houston – the fourth largest and most diverse city in America.
We offer students a top-rated, nationally accredited theological education taught by highly qualified faculty – 75% of whom have their doctorates. We also remain committed to affordable education. Because of low tuition rates as well as need-based scholarships, financial aid and flexible class schedules, many students who otherwise might not be able, have successfully obtained their college degree.
Online, on campus, or both, students can choose from several bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees or personal enrichment courses. We also offer an associate’s degree taught entirely in the Spanish language. And with a special emphasis on the adult learner, CBS works hard to meet the needs of today's busy adult.
Come and see for yourself what transformation looks like!
