Calvary Bible Institute

Calvary Bible Institute. Calvary Bible Institute(CBI) is a short-term, part-time, non-degree granting institute designed to provide a Christian education to persons preparing for, or currently serving in, Christian ministry, as well as those who want to go deeper into God’s Word. CBI equips believers in biblical and doctrinal studies, ministry and leadership skills so that they can be prepared to do the work of the ministry. We believe that every member of the Body of Christ has been endowed with spiritual gifts and called to ministry. The mission of CBI and its qualified resident instructors includes the development of those gifts and calling by providing academic excellence through an experiential and practical education.

Diploma in Biblical Studies and Leadership Development, or Audit Certificate of Participation (3 years – 406 hours of learning): systematic curriculum with the objective of giving a Biblical foundation for lay Christians seeking a deeper systematized study of the Word of God, individuals who are called to professional Christian ministry, as well as train individuals who have demonstrated spiritual gifts, a calling from God, the ability to lead others, and the faithfulness to reproduce what they are given. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses, entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2).

From the start, it was my heart’s desire to prepare and ready myself for God’s service, and CBI was exactly what I needed and what I was looking for. I appreciate the teachers who have such a passion for God and His Word. It was a blessing to be a part of something so meaningful and life transforming. I encourage everyone to go deeper and be blessed in ways you haven’t imagined. Thank you, CBI, for this valuable opportunity and thank you, God, for CBI!! - Cynthia Ermert

I enrolled in the Calvary Bible Institute (CBI) because I wanted “to know” God more and “understand” what was meant by what He said in the Bible. I also wanted to have an intimate relationship with Him. Every course taught by the teachers of CBI has strengthened my resolve to reach a much deeper level in the Word of God. Do you REALLY know how much God loves us? Do you know what God’s original plan was? I advise you to enroll in CBI to find out. I also advise you to take the courses offered for credit, if you can, because it requires a commitment to do the work in which you are investing. The tuition is reasonable, the teachers are excellent, and a deeper relationship with the Lord God is PRICELESS. - Bob Cooper

My eyes, ears, heart, and mind have been opened to God in an incredible way through CBI. I don’t believe I fully grasped all of what Jesus did for me until taking these classes. I’ve fallen more in love with God than I ever thought possible. And without doubt, I’ve grown in intimacy with the Holy Spirit. CBI has helped mold and shape me into all God has created me to be. It’s important, now more than ever, to become an effective soul winner for the Kingdom of God. CBI empowers you to do this through deepening your understanding of God’s Word and His love. You’ll know all which is yours through Christ, and you’ll desire to share it with others. I see CBI as a place which equips you to shine bright for the purpose of winning souls. “Don’t shine so others can see you. Shine so that through you, others can see Him.” - C.S. Lewis - Samantha Swami


Enrolling in CBI has been a life-changing experience for me. Like many, I had long desired to dive deeper into the Word of God. When CBI was announced, I prayed and made a decision not to let this opportunity slip past me, for which I give God the glory. One thing I realized very early in the program was my limited knowledge of the fullness of God’s plan concerning man and this world as laid out in Scripture. I sat in class every week in awe of this. I will explain my experience as being in an airplane ride and looking down to see God’s incredible plan from beginning to end. How His sovereignty and zeal execute this plan, and our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the center and foundation, is revealed at every stage of the plan across human history from the Old to the New Testament. My commitment is to share these truths with my family, the body of believers and the lost, and be ready for the coming of our Lord. Thank you CBI! - Sampson Larbi
