The Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies at Belhaven University provides students with a Biblical foundation for life and for ministry. At the heart of the Biblical Studies degree at Belhaven is the conviction that the Bible is God’s Word and that it is the final authority for faith (what we believe about God) and life (how we are called to live). In light of this, all courses in the Biblical Studies department are taught from the view that the Bible is God’s revealed truth and that it is relevant for our lives. In addition to this commitment to the Bible as the Word of God, the major in Biblical Studies is designed for students to grow academically in their knowledge of God’s Word, spiritually in their relationships with Jesus Christ, and practically in their preparation for ministry.

Belhaven University is an exciting place to study the Bible and to prepare for ministry, and the Biblical Studies major at Belhaven serves as an excellent foundation for life and for ministry!
