Theological Training

NLM believes that the three-fold responsibility to the Gospel is “Declare it, demonstrate it and Defend it”. We also believe that real sound Biblical knowledge is essential for pastors and Missionaries. Because of the onslaught of false doctrines, it is necessary to prepare the young people of God to stand firm in their biblical faith and also preach the gospel boldly against heresies and false religions. TRIVANDRUM BIBLE COLLEGE (TBC, www.tbc.org.in) was established in 1989 with this burden. TBC offers 3 years B. Th. for higher secondary school students and 3 years M. Div. for degree holders. God has blessed us with an excellent faculty and staff. We keep it small in size because of the “quality control” and the personal attention to be given to each student. TBC has only a limited land area. We enroll only 80-90 students each year. Every year 20-25 young men and women graduate and go to mission fields.

Our graduates have proved themselves to be some of the best missionaries in our great country. Our intention is to produce Pauline Pastors, Expository Preachers and Passionate Pioneer Church Planters for the Lord. The quality of teaching and the family atmosphere on campus has attracted students from more than 15 states of India and from Nepal. In the past 25 years Trivandrum Bible College has commissioned and sent out more than 500 missionaries. They serve the Lord in some of the most difficult places of our country and among some of the most primitive people. Some of the graduates are giving very efficient service for the Lord through various organizations and churches
