DOCTRINAL STATEMENT
The Scriptures:
We believe that all of Scripture (both the Old and New Testament) is verbally inspired by
God and is our final authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine, reproof, correction, and
instruction in righteousness (II Tim. 3:16, 17).

God:
We believe in only one true God; One in essence, nature, and attributes, but existing in
three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (I Jn. 5:7).

Jesus Christ:
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, of His shed blood on
Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins, of His bodily resurrection and ascension to the
Father‘s right hand. We do not believe that He is simply ―a‖ way to the Father, but rather the
only way through which we can receive righteousness, regeneration, sanctification, and
glorification. He is, in fact, our salvation (I Cor. 1:30-31).

Holy Spirit:
We believe in the baptism with the Holy Spirit, expressed with speaking in tongues
according to Acts 1:8; 2:4; 9:17; 10:44-46; 11:15, 16; and 19:6. We believe this experience
is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth, and can be received by faith (Gal. 3:2).

Salvation:
We believe that all who, in repentance and faith, receive the Lord Jesus as Savior and Lord
are born again (Acts 20:20-21; Rom. 10:9-13).

Healing:
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross has provided healing for the
human body (Mt. 8:16, 17; Isa. 53:4; I Pet. 2:24).

The Resurrection:
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust; one to everlasting life and one to
everlasting damnation (Mt. 25:46).

The Second Coming:
We believe in a literal, physical second return of the Lord Jesus Christ (I Th. 1:10; 4:16-17).

The Church:
We believe that the universal church is comprised of all true believers who have received
salvation through Christ (Eph. 1:22-23). We also believe in and encourage fellowship with a
local church (Heb. 10:25).

Gifts of the Spirit:
We believe that spiritual gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are for the common good
and building up of others today (I Cor. 12:7).

STANDARDS OF PROGRESS AND DRESS CODE


Standards of Progress
Charis Bible College has three basic standards by which students' progress is measured: grace,
servanthood, and character. Detailed below are "guideposts" by which the working out of these truths may be
measured, not a formula by which these qualities may be attained. As a believer we already possess
 everything we need in Christ, but must yield our souls and bodies so that these qualities are manifested in
our thoughts and actions.

Grace: Second Peter 1:2-3, "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God,
and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and
godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue."

Charis is the Greek word for grace. The grace of God is God's favor given to every believer who by faith
puts his or her trust in Jesus Christ. Grace is multiplied in your life as you relate with other people. The
grace of God, His ability working in you, is manifested as you are willing to listen and understand the
heart of your teachers and fellow students, as you exercise forgiveness, as you see the best in people and
overlook human faults, and as you are enabled to work with those you may disagree with.

Servanthood: As disciples of Jesus Christ, students at Charis Bible College value and walk in humility and
servanthood. They are willing to put the needs of others ahead of their own desires, and find opportunities
on their own to serve the school, staff, fellow students, and others.

Character: It is defined by the example of our Lord Jesus Christ and further explained by the writers of the
Bible. This is measured by your attendance record, faithfulness in paying tuition, obeying rules, and living by
the highest moral and ethical standards.


Conduct
We expect all students of Charis Bible College to conduct themselves to the best of their abilities, in agreement
with the teachings of Jesus, both on and off campus, at all times while enrolled as students.


Dress Code
Modesty and good taste are considered the principle guidelines for all students while on campus. Business-
casual dress for men and women that is clean and neat is appropriate for classes and daily campus
activities. Occasionally, circumstances may dictate a more formal dress. On such occasions, dresses for
the ladies are appropriate. Suits, or sport coats with ties, are considered formal for men.

                                  Most Frequently Asked Questions

School
What does Charis Bible College (CBC) have to offer that other Bible schools don’t?
A thorough study of the Word of God through fellowship, teaching how to apply the Word to your life and
ministry. It‟s a place where you can get your questions answered according to the Word of God, and much
more through developing an intimate relationship with your heavenly Father instead of practicing „religion‟.
It‟s a grace school where you learn the truth about the love of God, and how to walk in the freedom of His love.

Do I have to be a member of the church?
We believe that we, as the body of Christ, are the “church” however, CBC recommends that you attend church
and worship services regularly, and serve in a local congregation. You will learn foundational truth that will
help guide you to a local church fellowship if needed.

Why should I attend CBC?
If there is a stirring and desire inside of you to attend, CBC can help you to recognize if it‟s a call to ministry,
and/or a call to a deeper relationship with and understanding of God. Feel free to ask current CBC students and
staff, which are all CBC graduates, for their personal testimonies which we believe will encourage your
decision. We have seen awesome inner and physical healings, and well as other tremendous changes in people
as they learn the Word of God that sets them FREE!

When can I enroll?
CBC Phoenix allows an “open enrollment” and regular classes start at CBC Phoenix on September 6th. Staff
can answer your open enrollment questions if you are unable to begin your studies at CBC Phoenix at the
beginning of each school year.

No, CBC classes are taught systematically, to give the students a solid foundation so they can receive the most

graded pass/fail, based on whether the assignment was completed or not.

Instructor: Delron Shirley
Class Hours: 10
It is so tiny that no world map can even squeeze its name on the space allotted it on the layout,
yet Israel dominates our evening news every night. How is it that this miniscule blob of color with
an arrow from the Mediterranean Sea identifying it as a nation, can so engulf the interest of
the total human race that it takes precedence on the front page of almost every newspaper and
tabloid? Why can one little country of a few million people tie up the wealth, the foreign policy,
and the political movements of the greatest nations on earth? Explore these intriguing ideas and
more in this class.

Hopeless world!

that faith. Faith is a choice and that choice determines your destiny.

Course Title: Healing
Instructor: Barry Bennett
Class Hours: 10
The Christian life includes physical health for all who believe. It is as much God‘s will that we be
physically whole as it is that we be born again. Before anyone can have faith for healing, they
must be certain of God‘s will. Faith cannot go beyond the knowledge of God‘s will and God‘s
ways in the area of health and healing. This course will establish principles for health and healing
and will explain healing in terms of the spirit, soul and body of man. We will learn what is
required of us as faith filled Christians, and what is God‘s part in the process of receiving health in
our bodies.
