  • A world without Down Syndrome

    31 October 2016  by Ian Dickson

  • The Beginning

    29 September 2016  by Jonny Beggs
    In the Bible ‘the Beginning’ has great significance; we learn about the beginning of the world, the Word, and we learn how prophets and disciples began their ministry. So as a College we place a special emphasis on ‘the Beginning’ of studies for all students. We begin as we mean to continue, focused on God, His Word, and His Work in this world.  We invite all students, their families, friends and church leaders to

  • Sabbath-making as Soul-keeping

    22 July 2016  by Cynthia Bennett Brown
    Over the course of a busy semester at Belfast Bible College the pressure from assignments and exams, administration, teaching, homes, health, placements, and worries is felt not only in our souls and minds but also our bodies.  Now and again we have phases in life when we just plain get tired, and we need a break from pressing labours.  But sometimes, if we’re honest, we reach this place less because of this or that particular o

  • Re-reading well known biblical stories

    22 July 2016  by William Ford
    There are some stories in the bible that we know very well, having heard them from Sunday school onwards. This familiarity can sometimes be a problem, as we can lose the ability to be challenged or inspired by them.[1] How do we read such stories well?[2] As an example, let us think about a very well-known story: David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17. One key question to ask in reading the story is why David acted the way that he did. He is introdu

But too much stress can cause that same student to sink into a deb
