At BCWA we challenge you to think outside the box while actively engaging you with our triune God, the relevancy of the Bible for today, the history of Christianity and the Church and we want to hear your story too…so that we at BCWA may help develop you in your walk with Christ.

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me – put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” – (Philippians 4: 8-9).






The Bible College of Western Australia Incorporated (BCWA) started in 1978 as a nondenominational Bible College with the vision of “equipping the saints”. This vision was borne in the heart of Rev. Dr. Max Wells who never gave up on this ‘equipping’ vision. With Rev. Dr. David Shalley as the founding Principal the college began its journey of teaching God’s Word in a practical way. Praise God, this year (2018) BCWA celebrates its 40th anniversary on 5th May 2018 at 4pm at our campus located at Kelmscott Baptist Church, 29 Third Ave. Kelmscott, 6111
