The mission of the Baptist Bible Institute is to provide training to leaders, future pastors and church planters in their own geographical location, in their language and at a reasonable cost.

The Baptist Bible Institute is a non-degree, non-accredited program intended to offer students the opportunity to train for ministry while remaining in their current job.

Why Study in the BBI?

  • Because it provides a systematic learning in the areas of biblical, theological and ministerial knowledge.
  • Because we delve into the major themes of the Bible.
  • Because we learn to use several tools to interpret the Bible correctly.

Because we learn to apply and communicate the message of the Bible.
