“the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit
thou to faithful men who shall be able to teach others also.” II Timothy 2:2
NBBS was started in 1984 in order to continue on with the preacher training philosophy of ministry of the old Bible Baptist Seminary: the school which J. Frank Norris and Louis Entzminger began in 1939
“the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
In a world that is increasingly high-tech, nothing is as cutting-edge as the Bible. By its very nature, it will always be the most advanced, and yet settled presentation of truth there will ever be. What can be more modern than a book of timeless truths given by an eternal and all-knowing Creator?
Because God is outside of time and sees the past, present and future all at once, He can impart truth that is ageless. Therefore, nothing could be more state-of-the-art and up-to-date than His Word.
It is proactive, prescient and penetrating in its message in ways no other writing could ever be (Psalm 119; Galatians 3:8; II Timothy 3:16-17). It's the all-time religion more so than even the old-time religion.
Accordingly, we are compelled to teach it in a truly comprehensive manner. The better the Bible is taught, the more relevant will be the training.
We know of no other place where your foundational Bible training will be as thorough-going and ministry directed as it will be at NBBS. Other areas of learning are indeed relevant but a distant second in priority; so “first things first.” Come specialize with us!
