Bible College of Malaysia
BCM was established as the Bible Institute of Malaya in 1960 to train national workers for the gospel. The first class of seven students graduated in 1962 - four men and three women. From the beginning, the emphasis of the college has been on a holistic training programme for the full-time ministry of the gospel. A three-year Bible College diploma was offered.
At first the programmes were offered in English. Students wishing to study in Chinese would go to Ecclessia Bible Institute in Hong Kong. Between 1968 and 1972, several students were able to do their studies in Chinese under the direction of Rev David and Alice Nyien. However, a full fledged Chinese department was formed only in 1980.
In 1982, the name was changed to the Bible College of Malaysia with the introduction of the Bachelor of Theology programme. A Certificate of Biblical Studies for lay leaders was started in 1986.
BCM was accredited by the Asia Theological Association (ATA) in 1989. In 1990 BCM became the first chartered member of the Asia Pacific Theoloical Association (APTA). BCM was accredited by APTA between 1994-1999. BCM is also a founding member of the Malaysia Association of Theological Schools.
In 2003, the Bahasa Malaysia department was formed. The College then launched a graduate study program, the Master of Ministry, in 2004. The following year in partnership with Global Training Ministries founded by Kevin and Glenys Hovey, BCM offered World Harvest Institute, a missionary training program.
BCM is wholly owned by the General Council of the Assemblies of Malaysia. It is governed by a Board of Directors: two representing the Executive Committee of the Assemblies of God, the President of the college, one other BCM representative, one field representative elected by the General Council-in-session, the Chinese Language Division Supervisor, and the Alumni President.
