Philosophy of Education
JSBC is committed to the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and projects this revealed truth as the integrating factor in all of its educational processes. JSBC is Protestant, evangelical, and Pentecostal, and it believes that the Church has been given a renewed emphasis on the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
Through the anointing or enabling of the Holy Spirit, true knowledge can be acquired and significant work can be accomplished in the Kingdom of God. Its world view is that in the Bible, God has given a revelation of Himself as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe and given a revelation of His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Savior and Lord. This world view requires the highest achievable academic standard, a genuinely Christian code of conduct, and a commitment to worldwide evangelism.
The primary thrust of the academic program is to provide students with both a thorough grounding in the Bible and opportunities for immediate practical ministry experience.

Chapel & Practicum
All full-time students, regardless of whether or not they reside on-campus, are required to attend Wednesday and Friday, for vibrant Pentecostal chapel services under the leadership of the President of the College. FACULTY & STAFF and guest speakers will preach and teach the Word, each bringing their own unique experience and testimony of God’s grace, coupled with the anointing of the Holy Spirit to make for powerful times of learning and growth for the students.
It is not uncommon for the Holy Spirit to move so strongly that the service is literally turned over to times of worship and altar time before the Lord.
Mondays are scheduled for Student Ministry Practicum in which the students gather and report on their weekly church attendance as well as give account for their weekly Practicum (Hands on Ministry). Students will choose from a variety of options such as Nursing Home, Children’s Ministry, Crossfire etc.
