Community Bible Study International commonly referred to as CBSI is a non-denominational Bible program will be resuming here in SVG from September 12th 2016 at the Grammar School (Board Building) every Monday from 5pm to 6:30pm. CBSI has been in St. Vincent and the Grenadines now since 2011 and hundreds of lives have been directly impacted as a result of this study.
Community Bible Study International commonly referred to as CBSI is a non-denominational bible program opened to everyone. This Bible study is a tool geared towards making disciples for Jesus Christ. It is a systematic study of God’s Word where we focus primarily on the study of different books of the Bible and get lessons that God wants us to apply to our lives today. This Bible study includes FIVE elements:
Personal Home study. (At the end of each lesson, each member is given a handout with the questions. Each member is expected to spend time with God and complete this during the course of the week in preparation for the next class. The questions are divided into sections (Day 1, Day 2, etc.) and we encourage persons to do a section a day to develop the habit of spending time daily in the Word.) The lessons also have memory verses attached to each lesson that members are encouraged to learn and share at class.
Stimulating Discussion. (At class, members led by a facilitator, share and discuss their answers. God speaks to everyone and ‘iron sharpens iron’.
Effective Teaching. (At the end of the discussion, everyone comes back together for a teaching on the passage that was just studies. This teaching focuses on how to apply the lesson that was just studied. It answers the questions, now that I have studied this, what do I do as a result? What does God now expect of me?

Insightful Commentary. (pgs 1 and 2 of the lesson has a commentary written by a Bible scholar on the passage just studied. This helps to further understand the lesson and clarify any questions after the discussion and the lecture. Respected theologians help participants
understand the historical context of the passage and how it relates to the rest of Scripture. Care for each member. We pray for each other and strive to build strong bonds with each other and demonstrate love in practical ways. “By this shall all men know that you are my disciple when you have love one for another.”
This Bible study is opened to everyone, regardless of your knowledge of the Bible and costs NOTHING but your time.
