BISA Philosophy of Education
Since the Bible is God’s trustworthy and authoritative Word, it is always at the centre of our curriculum and training. Our method of study and teaching employs the historic Protestant and Reformational hermeneutic in the interpretation of the Bible.
Our concern is more than just to impart knowledge; it is to take that knowledge and use it in the development of the skills and character our students will need to be effective in their lives and ministries.
Our goal is to help each student develop a Judaeo-Christian world-and-life view. We strive to help each student to think creatively and critically about the various issues they will face in their context of ministry, and to do so in a way that is biblical and preserves the bonds of peace and fellowship in our non-denominational, multi-cultural and international Christian community on campus.
We seek to enlist skilled educators
We endeavour to retain a faculty who are evangelical in their theology, who model the truths they teach and who employ a variety of educational methods that correspond with the values, aims and ethos of the college.
We recognize our dependence on God’s grace and the enabling and direction of the Holy Spirit in our teaching and administrative labours.
Thus we value the role of prayer in all our activities.
Jesus is our model and His Word is our text
As a campus community we seek to model Christian faith, love, fellowship, witness, team-work and submission to the Lordship of Christ in every area of our lives. We may fail as sinful humans, but by God's grace it is our desire to glorify Christ in our teaching, learning and service.
