Christian Education

(Bible Church Training Institute)


The BCTI is an adult learning and skills training programme geared towards providing relevant, sound and stimulating Christian education for adults, to facilitate the development of Christian character and maturity and to equip them for the ministry and mission of the church.


It consists of four schools, viz., the School of Discipleship (SOD), School of Ministry (SOM), School of Continuing Education (SCE), and the School of Leadership (SOL).


The School of Discipleship (SOD) orientates new disciples to the basics of the Christian faith and sets them up for a lifelong journey of knowing, loving, serving and becoming more like Jesus. At present, SOD consists of a 12 session Foundations Course that answers questions like:

  • What is the Gospel? (Course Preview)

  • Who is God?

  • How does God reveal himself to us?

  • Why am I here?

  • What went wrong?

  • Who is Jesus Christ?

  • Why was it necessary for Jesus to die and be raised?

  • Who is the Holy Spirit?

  • How do I commune with God?

  • What does it mean to be part of the people of God?

  • How do I invite others to follow Jesus?

  • What is our hope for the future?

Each lesson will have a teaching element (“head”) taught by a teacher, a practice element (“hands”) in the form of group discussions and personal assignments, and a devotional element (“heart”), in the form of devotional material.

The sessions take place on a weekday evening from 8.00 - 9.30 pm.

The School of Ministry (SOM) aims to equip maturing believers to serve effectively and growing through their service, especially through a deeper understanding of their identity in Christ and their unique personality, gifts and inclinations. Topics include: Being a spiritually healthy leader, cultivating good habits or disciplines for the long haul.


The SOM involves teaching and training sessions on three Saturday mornings, other on-the-job ministry exposure, and small group mentoring.

The BCTI School of Continuing Education (SCE) seeks to provide a comprehensive platform for continuing learning and growth for adult disciples. Courses lasting from 2-6 sessions are offered every 3 months for each of the following areas:

  • Biblical Studies (Old & New Testaments)

  • Pulpit-related Topics & Studies

  • Christian Theology & Church History

  • Contemporary & Inter-disciplinary Studies


These courses are led by pastoral staff as well as marketplace leaders who are educated and experienced in these subjects or areas. Specific modules will be advertised via the Church’s weekly bulletin and e-flyers.


In particular, a Foundations series is designed to help maturing believers to gain a clear understanding of God’s Word in a succinct and yet comprehensive way. Two courses of 7-8 weeks each are offered each year, over 7 years, and will cover the whole Bible as well as key doctrines.

The School of Leadership (SOL) aims to equip leaders to lead well. Through structured programs and informal conversations and coaching, existing and emerging leaders are encouraged to grow in their leadership convictions and competence.

Pastors-in-charge: Pastor Beh Soo Yeong & Pastor Lee Kok Wah
