- The College of Biblical Studies of Houston, Texas is the largest nationally accredited, multi-ethnic Bible College in North America. Since 1979, CBS has been developing Christian leaders to serve our multi-ethnic community. A commuter college where tuition is kept low to broaden access to higher education, CBS provides instruction six days a week, offering morning, afternoon, evening and Saturday classes so that students can fit education into their life schedule. In the fall of 1979, the first classes of Houston Bible Institute, were offered. The school's first Executive Director was Rev. Rodney L. Cooper, Th.M. From inception, the school used the facilities of KHCB-FM, a Houston-based Christian radio network, for its classrooms, and leased administrative space nearby. In 1995, the work of building a campus began with the purchase of the Dale Carnegie National Training Center. Presently, the College owns 159,417 square feet of building on 14 acres of land and a net worth of 11.1 million dollars. As of August 2003, CBS offers three bachelor degree programs (Bachelors of Science in Biblical Counseling, Christian Leadership and Christian Ministry), an Associate in Biblical Studies and a Bible Certificate program. The college is accredited by the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) formerly the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges (AABC), a national accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), the United States Department of Education, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
