Perth Bible College


About this college

Our vision at PBC is to meet the world with the gospel and to train and equip the everyday Christian to advance the mission of Christ and serve in whatever season and context they’re called to. We enable students to fulfil God’s purpose within their generation through our theological and Christian counselling courses.

We execute this vision by providing biblical and theological education as a TEQSA accredited tertiary provider, in order to equip churches and Christian organisations with a qualified and effective workforce that harnesses the development of faithful leaders through various educational programs.

Choosing Perth Bible College

 is a nationally TEQSA-accredited tertiary education institution. We provide holistic higher education awards from diplomas to masters degrees in an environment of academic excellence that is Christ-centred, ministry focused, and life-transforming.

Our courses are truly flexible and can be face-to-face on campus, online via live stream, or in your own time via the recorded lectures. Hybrid learning is offered with a combination of lecture styles. Whatever method of learning you choose, we want to empower you to think deeply about Christ, his work and the world and to SERVE him with integrity, courage, conviction and love.

Studying for Christian Ministry is challenging and rewarding. You are choosing to give your life to serve others as your calling to follow Christ. PBC arose from a vision of the world’s need for the gospel of grace, more effective servants of the gospel, and intentional Bible-based ministry and theological training.

We are committed to the development of each student in their spiritual and academic progress. PBC continues to flourish through the grace and faithfulness of God. We want to reach more people and establish and strengthen more ministries by men and women skilled and passionate about the gospel. We want to empower individuals to be effective in the many contexts God calls His people to serve.

Please note that some courses may not be available for enrolment every year, please refer to the college’s website to see their offering for the current year.
