Our History
About ICBM

The International College of Bible and Missions began in January 2000 through the vision of Dr. Stewart Snook (ICBM's first principal) and others. The second principal was Dr. Gorgon Gregory; the third, Dr Frank Shayi, and fourth, Rev. Ndaba Mazabane. Our fifth and current principal is Dr. Arthur Alard who started serving in this role in January 2017. The college exists to serve the need of training leaders for the evangelical churches of Southern Africa. It is accredited through the Council on Higher Education and Fully Registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training.

The College offers a modular system of coursework which allows students great flexibility in how many and which modules to take at the beginning of any term.

Join us in Fulfilling our Vision of Proclaiming Christ to the World


To train hundreds for ministry

Our vision is to see hundreds of men and women trained for vocational Christian ministry, up to the Masters degree level, so that they will be effective in making disciples of all the nations through a firm grasp of Systematic and Practical Theology, Missions, Christian Education, Biblical Counselling, and Youth Ministry, both within South Africa and outside its borders.


To be a resource to churches

Our vision is to be a resource to the churches of Gauteng for workshops and seminars in their areas of need and our areas of expertise.


To train lay leaders

Our vision is to train lay leaders in the churches of the surrounding area to be highly effective ministers in their churches and highly effective members of their communities.

Statement of Faith

We Believe that:

  1. The Bible is the inspired inerrant Word of God in the original writings, the written and trustworthy record of God’s revelation of Himself, and the way of salvation to humanity, absolute in authority for life and faith, profitable for instruction in righteousness, and final in its content. 2 Pet 1:21; 2 Tim 3:16; Psa 19; Psa 119:160; Jn 17:17; Rev 22:18-19; Prov 30:5-6.
  2. God, who created the universe and who reveals Himself through creation and the Bible is One and eternally exists in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit share the same divine nature and attributes. Gen 1:1; Psa 19; Ex 20:3; Deut 4:35; 1 Cor 8:4-6; Eph 4:3-6; Isa 48:16; Matt 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14.
  3. Although humans were created by God in His image, they sinned and incurred the penalty of death, physical and spiritual. All human beings are now lost, alienated from God and dead in sin. They inherit a sinful nature and prove through their acts of sin that they are worthy of eternal condemnation. Gen 1:27; Rom 3:23; Rom 5:12-21; Rom 6:23; Eph 2:1-3; Col 1:21; John 3:17-18; 5:24.
  4. Salvation is only by grace, the free gift of God, through faith in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins according to the Scriptures. Those who receive Christ by faith have their sins forgiven, their hearts cleansed, are born of the Spirit, become children of God, and are made new creations in Christ. They obtain eternal life and are rescued from hell. Jn 3:16; Eph 2:8-9; 1 Cor 15:3; Rom 3:24; 1 Jn 1:7; Jn 1:12; Gal 4:5; 2 Cor 5:17; Lk 19:10.
  5. Jesus Christ is equally God and a human being. He was born of a virgin and is Himself very God. He died as a substitutionary sacrifice so that all who believe in Him can be justified on the grounds of the shed blood. Our Lord Jesus rose from the dead in His own physical body now glorified. Jn 1:1; Rom 9:5; Phil 2:6-11; Matt 1:18, 23; Jn 5:18; 10:30; 20:19-20.
  6. The Holy Spirit regenerates believers into new life in Christ and He seals them unto the day of redemption. He sanctifies them through His progressive work of conforming them to the image of Christ. He equips and empowers believers in their service and ministry. Tit 3:5-7; Eph 1:13; Jn 3:5; 1 Cor 6:19; Rom 8:26-27; 1 Cor 12:8-11; Gal 5:16-23.
  7. The Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. New birth and personal confession of Christ are therefore essentials of Church membership in the Body of Christ. The Church on earth is the Body through which Christ acts in His worldwide command to make disciples of all nations. The Church observes two ordinances: Baptism and Holy Communion. Matt 28:19-20; Eph 1:22-23; Tit 3:5-7; Jn 13; 1 Cor 11:23-29.
  8. The Lord Jesus Christ will return again to earth the second time, personally, bodily, and visibly. He will rapture His Church, judge the world, and reign a thousand years on the earth. He will create a new heaven and earth. Zech 14:4; Matt 25:31-46; Heb 9:28; 1 Th 2:19; 4:16-17; 1 Cor 3:11-15; 1 Pet 5:4; Rev 20:4-6, 11-15; 21:1–22:7.
