About our Distance Learning Centers

Chesapeake Bible College enables students, regardless of their life situation or daily schedule, the opportunity to earn a degree in Bible and ministry-related subjects through the combined evaluation of their church service, life experience and previous college credits.  Whether through traditional classes or correspondence, students may choose from a range of academic programs from the diploma to the doctor’s level.  These educational offerings are delivered through Distance Learning Centers (“DLC’s”) as well as individually through Individual Student Correspondence (“ICS”) Online Courses.

Distance Learning Centers:

Chesapeake Bible College and Seminary is a Christian educational institution which works with local churches to provide classes in Bible subjects, Christian living, and ministry.  Over the years, Chesapeake has developed a curriculum that is economical and user-friendly, contains doctrinally sound Christian educational courses, and is adjustable for churches of various sizes.

Chesapeake Bible College and Seminary has satisfied all the criteria for the status of an exempt religious-degree-granting institution as set forth in Section 1005.06(1)(f) concerning the Florida Commission of Independent Education.  This enables the College to legally share its ministry with local churches.  The College will accept a certificate of completion for courses taken at approved Schools of Ministry.  Such courses may then be accepted by the College for credit.
