When considering coming to Bible College, one should feel a calling on their life by God into ministry. Making a decision as important as this needs many hours of prayer seeking God’s direction for your life. Bible College not only involves years of study, but is very often the first step in a life long commitment to serving Jesus Christ and others. There is nothing more rewarding or more important than studying God’s Word and then sharing it with others. Seeing lost souls come to Jesus and knowing God used you to help them in that process is awesome. God looks for a willing and committed heart for Him and His word. Canada Christian College is recognized by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities as a privately funded institution with degree- granting authority. Canada Christian College has the same level of degree granting authority as all other recognized universities in Ontario. Applicants for admission to Canada Christian College will be considered without re- gard to race, class or nationality. The prospective student is assessed according to academic background and personal testimony. When considering applications, the Registrar’s Office reviews the prospective student’s complete record, recommendations and personal information. It is important that a student read, sign and abide by the College Standards.

Students applying for admission to Canada Christian College will normally have completed their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (Grade Twelve) or equivalent. Maturestudents (21 years of age and over) who lack a high school academic diploma may make application for Mature Student Admission. Such applicants will be required to demonstrate a level of general knowledge consistent with that of students being admitted from a secondary school in order to ensure their ability to undertake studies at the post-secondary level.We would like to encourage you to come in and visit the College and see the facilities. A personal tour can be arranged upon appointment. Please feel free to talk to us about the calling God is placing on your life. We have trained individuals who are here to guide and pray with you in seeking God’s direction for you. If God is calling you, don’t delay.

Seeking to Impart God’s Powerful Truth to You.

Our world is upside down. Right is wrong and wrong is right. You hold the power to present the truth and watch the power of God change people. Deuteronomy 32:30 says "one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight". When you deliver the truth it offsets one thousand people's deception. When two of us present the truth it undoes the disinformation of ten thousand.
