Spirituality, Scholarship, Service
The Far Eastern Bible College (FEBC) is one of the oldest Bible
colleges in Singapore, founded in 1962 by the late Rev Dr Timothy
Tow, who also founded the Bible-Presbyterian Church movement in
FEBC endeavours to provide a comprehensive biblical-theological
education (Acts 20:27) that is based solely on the forever
infallible and inerrant Scriptures (Ps 12:6-7, Matt 5:18, 2 Tim
3:16-17) so as to equip both Christian men and women for effective
spiritual leadership and service (2 Tim 2:2, 2:15) in the
proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matt 28:18-20), and in
the defence of the Reformed Faith (Phil 2:16, Titus 1:9, Jude 3).
The most important asset of the College is her teaching
faculty. FEBC has a total of nine spiritually and academically
qualified lecturers in Biblical Studies, Systematic Theology, Church
History, Pastoral Ministry, and Christian Education, and six tutors
in Greek, English, Music, and Information Technology. The FEBC
lecturers are themselves graduates of the College. As such, they
understand well the vision and mission of the College, and can be
trusted to serve as effective teachers and mentors to our students.
Know that FEBC lecturers are also practitioners of the faith in
their respective churches. Being skilled in practical ministry
themselves, they are no "ivory tower" professors.
FEBC is not only a Biblical-theological institution of higher
learning and spiritual training, it is also a charitable trust. As a
bona fide non-profit institution, every effort is made by the
College to keep student fees to the barest minimum. Tuition is
highly subsidised, and needy but worthy students often enjoy a
full-tuition scholarship. This is only possible because of the
loving support of God's people through their freewill offerings.
FEBC seeks born again believers called of God to a life of
committed and consecrated Christian service to be students of the
College (Luke 9:23-24). As such, being a student in FEBC is not a
personal right but a God-given privilege.
Are you willing to serve the Lord Jesus Christ unconditionally
and unreservedly, and submit yourself fully to the academic rigour,
spiritual discipline, and theological excellence of this College? If
yes, then we welcome you warmly to study with us. Those looking for
an easy route towards their theological degree are hereby advised to
look elsewhere. "There is no royal road to learning."
The key to theological and ministerial success is,
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be
ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15).
Jesus said, "If any man will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross, and follow me" (Matt 16:24).
FEBC is safe! The Court of Appeal has ruled in our favour (verdict out on April 26, 2011). "The LORD hath done
great things for us; whereof we are glad" (Ps 126:3). All glory to His Name! The

The Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF) states very clearly
that the inspired Scriptures in the original languages are by God’s
“singular care and providence, kept pure in all ages” (WCF I:8). The
Westminster divines used Matthew 5:18 as a proof text for this
affirmation of the verbal plenary preservation (VPP) of the
Scriptures. This proves that the doctrine of the VPP of Scripture is
not just creedal, but more importantly Biblical.
VPP of Scripture is a position of faith that is based solely on the Word
of God. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen” (Heb 11:1). “So then faith
cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom 10:17). “But
without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God
must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that
diligently seek him”
(Heb 11:6). It is a position that we must take if we are to weather and
survive the onslaughts of postmodernism, pop-modernism, open-theism and
neo-deism that seek to destroy the church today.
