Answer Your Divine Calling

Discover God's calling on your life by pursuing a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Biblical Studies from Christ-centered Belhaven University. Here, you grow academically in your knowledge of God's Word, spiritually in your relationship with Jesus Christ, and practically in your preparation 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 are taught from the view that the Bible is God’s revealed truth and that it is relevant for our lives.
