CLBI students receive thought-provoking instruction from God’s Word. With core curriculum courses on the Old and New Testaments, Basic Theology, Christian Stewardship and Church History, we are committed to assisting local churches in providing biblical training that promotes a deeper commitment to Christ.

CLBI classes meet Monday evenings for six week sessions and are taught by experienced Bible college professors who are convinced that lives are changed as minds are transformed. CLBI’s desire is to educate believers in the knowledge of the Scriptures so that they are better equipped to minister in their local churches and to confidently address the spiritual issues associated with an increasingly secular society.
Classes are held at Chain of Lakes Community Bible Church, 43 W. Grass Lake Rd, Lake Villa, IL 60046.  Tuition and fees for classes are kept to a minimum; courses start at only $40.00 per credit hour!
