Vision

We want to strengthen followers of Christ and the leadership pool for our local churches. Discover provides another pathway whereby potential leaders can be trained for ministry. This pathway will allow students to stay in their home church and continue to serve; it will be taught by practitioners - effective pastors who are putting in action the things they are teaching; it will expose students to Open Bible on a broader scale; and it will allow them a pathway to ministry credentials that would not incur any significant debt. We see this as the beginning step of a lifetime of learning. Our hope is to create a culture of lifetime learning for all Pacific Open Bible ministers. 

Bias toward Mission

All aspects of the school – academic, spiritual & practical – will have in mind the goal of developing a MISSIONAL LEADER and will be evaluated based on that goal. So all of the teaching, mentoring and experience will help the student know how this applies to the mission of making disciples for Jesus.


What We Believe

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God eternally revealed to the world in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. By Him were all things created.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning sacrifice through His crucifixion and His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that because of man's total inability to save himself, salvation is by God's grace alone; is received through sincere godly repentance, and a wholehearted acceptance of Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. Through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit, he becomes a new creature in Christ Jesus.
  • We believe in the present and personal ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those that are saved are resurrected to eternal life and those that are lost are resurrected to eternal damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. The local church provides opportunity for believers to gather together to learn from God’s Word, to encourage one another, to be strengthened spiritually and to minister to one another in order to serve their given mission field to the best of their ability
