How To Start A Bible Institute?    Welcome!  The opportunity to further the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world has never been greater. Establishing and maintaining a viable Bible institute plays a vital role in equipping Christians to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

The Bible instructs and encourages Believers to study to show themselves approved unto God. (2 Timothy 2:15a).  This requires the example of pastors and church leaders who systematically study the Word of God and encourages their congregation to do the same. 

What does it take for pastors and church leaders to implement the establishing of a Bible institute?

First and foremost, it requires the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Often, He will lead Church leaders themselves to engage in a structured, systematic study of God's Word through a Bible institute before establishing one in their church.

Beyond one's own experience in the study of God's Word, Church leaders should seek out and enlist the experience of an already established Bible institute.  At College of The Open Bible,  o
ur vision in assisting Churches and other religious entities in establishing Bible institutes is rooted in knowing that Jesus Christ can never be less than who He is... He IS LORD.  Thus, our vision is exalting Jesus Christ:
