Encounter God and see his story unfold as you study the Bible under dynamic teachers and within a passionate community. Observe the chronology of biblical events, better understand each book in its historical context, understand the harmony between the books, know why it was written, and grasp the main ideas. While in DBS you will learn the foundational truths of Christianity.


Our goal is to see both Word and Spirit blend together and see the flame of revival go forth! The journey that began in the DTS will now continue in DBS.

Share your faith more confidently with those who are seeking (evangelism) and explain the Word of God more accurately to those who’ve already come to faith (discipleship). The course is like a sequel to the DTS. This can be accomplished through one-on-ones, small groups, plus evangelism and mercy ministry in the community.
