This study explores Chinese international students' experiences in Bible classes at a faith-based institution. This particular population was selected because Chinese international students often encounter distinct challenges and circumstances compared to their domestic counterparts. The research sample for this study consists of eleven Chinese international students located at a private four-year university in the southeastern United States. A survey instrument consisting of 19 items was specifically developed using Google Forms to gather data for this study. The collected survey data were analyzed using thematic analysis, a qualitative method to explore respondents' experiences. The findings of this study provide insight into the unique challenges and perspectives of Chinese international students.
