What is the Center for the Study of the
Bible & Ethnicity?

The Center for the Study of the Bible and Ethnicity emphasizes the connection between the local and the global, with a focus on how God has moved, is moving, and has promised to move through His people. The CSBE encourages Christians to think deeply about the Church as its own distinct and unique cultural minority in history, and in the contemporary world.
