about US

Berean Bible Institute

Berean Bible Institute is a school of college level adult education that provides sound biblical and doctrinal studies.

We also provide training in ministry and leadership skills to help individuals become prepared to do the work of the ministry in local churches and on the mission field.

Without reservation, all teaching at BBI is carried out according to the biblical principle of “rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (II Tim. 2:15) in light of the distinctive message of God’s matchless Grace revealed to and through the Apostle Paul. BBI promotes the universal proclamation of “Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery” (Rom. 16:25) both to the world and to the church.
