Sielmat Bible College was established on April 1, 1980. In the beginning, it was called Sielmat Bible School. In 1980, it had only fifteen students, with Rev. D. Ruolngul, B.A., B.D., as the first Principal, assisted by Rev. Lalngaisang and Rev. H.B. Hluothang. Over the past few decades, it has grown in size and strength through the guidance of God. In 1995, it was upgraded to a college under Rev. H.B. Hluothang, B.A., B.D., M. Th. as the Principal. The Bachelor of Theology (B. Th.) program was started in 1995 and Master of Divinity (M.

Sielmat Bible College offers both the Bachelor of Theology (B.Th.) and Master of Divinity (M. Div.) Programs. Both are accredited by the Asia Theological Association (ATA).
The Bachelor of Theology (B. Th.) Program is an undergraduate Theology course. This course is interdisciplinary, combining biblical studies, church history, systematic theology, and Christian ethics with an optional stream comprising professional ministry studies such as pastoral care, Christian education, and preaching. The duration of the course is three years.
The degree of Master of Divinity (M.Div.) certifies completion of a program of theological studies designed primarily, although not exclusively, to prepare the student for pastoral ministry. It has become a requirement for all the Pastors of the Independent Church of India to have this degree. The duration of the course is two/three years.
