Reformation Bible College: A Name Matters

Posted On April 10, 2017

Dr. Stephen Nichols explains the significance and meaning of our college’s name.

I love all three words of our name: Reformation Bible College. And each three of those words define who we are. Even if we just stop and think about the Reformation, God used the reformers so mightily because they turned the church back to the pages of the Bible. The Reformation had the impact that it did because it was about the Bible. And at Reformation Bible College, we are about the Bible. And we don’t just want to teach the Bible to our students, our goal here is that the Bible will come to govern their lives.

The Puritan Thomas Watson speaks of “feathery Christians.” Feathery Christians are those who are not grounded. When the winds blow and the winds do blow, they come from both within the church and they come outside of the church, and when those winds blow feathery Christians don’t stand a chance. I don’t want feathery Christians, we want solid Christians who are grounded in God’s Word, who are governed by God’s Word, and who love God’s Word and live to proclaim God’s Word to others. That’s what we’re about here at Reformation Bible College.
