Minor Prophets (2 credits) This course is designed to introduce students to those prophetic books that typically are given a back seat to others. As any CCBC class this is given “To Know God and Equip His Servants”. A wide range of history is covered in these writings and much of their prophecies are still yet to come. There also are several prophecies that relate directly to Jesus and show the wonderful wisdom of God described before the events took place.
Romans (3 credits) This Pros Romaious class is a verse-by-verse study, using Paul’s question-and-answer format for systematic doctrine, but with an emphasis on its significance for practical exhortation toward Christian living.
The Gospel of John (2 credits) The Gospel of John has long fascinated the cleverest exegetes by its simple grammatical style and deep Christological content. The book is recognized as the unique fourth gospel that offers a portrait of Jesus Christ like no other book of the Bible. This course will be a verse-by-verse study of the entire gospel with emphasis on John’s theology, Christology, and particularly the relationship between His deity and humanity.

Old Testament & New Testament Survey (3 credits) The C2000 Series MP3s are recordings of Pastor Chuck Smith’s “Through the Bible” messages delivered at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa during the late 80’s and early 90’s. As you take these courses, you will study the Bible verse by verse from Genesis through Revelation by listening to expository messages, answering the study questions in the course guide, and writing down personal notes from the teachings. There are between 69 and 88 messages per course, at an average length of one hour per message. You should listen to these messages with your Bible open, with your heart prepared to hear from God, and with a willingness to respond to His Word. These courses should give you a broad and deep understanding of God’s Word, which will strengthen your faith in God and help you establish a firm understanding of His will for your life.
