The story of one man’s vision, the college he established, and the people—gripped by the love of God in Christ—who have taken the gospel out into the darkness of the world for 100 years.
The founder, Rev Benson Barnett, aimed to give students ‘such experiential knowledge of God, that they shall truly know Him, and go out and be strong and do exploits, as a result of that knowledge…We hold to the whole Word of God, and the love of God as revealed in Christ Jesus. People must know God, if they are to preach or teach about Him…and if we teach and preach the Word, the Holy Spirit will give enlightenment to those who will listen to Him…Not only are we a Bible College, but we are a Missionary College, sending forth the message of salvation to all the ends of the earth.’
Sydney Missionary and Bible College (SMBC), in Croydon, NSW, is the oldest interdenominational Bible college in Australasia. Since 1916 it has prepared Christians for a lifetime of gospel ministry throughout the world.
