About PBC

“PBC’s courses introduce students to the profound, universal, unchanging truths about God, humanity and the world. PBC’s theology is trinitarian at its core. It is centred on Christ as the supreme revelation of God’s person and seeks to lead students to fully understand the love of the Father and the Spirit in light of God’s gracious actions in Christ, on behalf of sinful humanity.”

Dr Andre van Oudtshoorn, PBC’s Academic Dean

At PBC, we are committed to serving God’s purposes in our generation.

Whether this is by empowering students for ministry in a personal or vocational capacity or Christian counselling, we are an Australian-accredited higher education provider offering biblical and theological studies that are gospel-centred and Kingdom-focused.

Much like King David served God’s multi-faceted purposes in his generation, God calls us to serve His purpose in ours.

PBC exists to equip you with the Christian theological tools to develop others and yourself in a holistic environment where you are a valued member of a greater Christian community.

We teach people to think through issues by providing foundational knowledge, tools and skills so that they can approach practical ministry with a well-developed framework for leading various forms of ministry, rather than prescribing one approach to ministry.

Our courses

PBC is an approved private Higher Education provider.

All the College’s courses are fully government accredited.

Students who are Australian citizens can access FEE-HELP, and full-time students may be eligible for Austudy or Youth Allowance.

PBC is also a CRICOS-approved overseas provider, meaning overseas students can study all courses full-time.

PBC is a participating member of the South Pacific Association of Evangelical Colleges. This means we are internationally recognised by evangelical and para-church agencies, guaranteeing further career opportunities for students.

Our strategic direction

PBC seeks to create an educational experience that enriches students and staff.

To do this, we recognise the need to place the student at the centre of everything we aim to achieve.

Although a few key areas immediately come to mind when doing this, such as the courses themselves, the lecture environment is only one part of the biblical and theological learning experience.

We apply a holistic approach to our teaching, learning and college environment.

“The thing I loved most about PBC was the environment. We have a Christian community on campus, support from the lecturer, lovely students and fellowship. It has encouraged me to feel part of the community.”
