Rio Grande Bible Institute, Inc. is incorporated as a religious, nonprofit organization under the laws of the State of Texas. Its tax-deductible receipts are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and its financial records are audited annually by an independent accounting firm.
Rio Grande Bible College ogranizes two short term mission trips that are taken during the Thanksgiving break (Nov 26- Dec 1) and Easter Break (April 1-6). Various groups are sent out to serve in churches in both Mexico and the United States.
These mission trips provide opportunities to put into practice what the student learns in the classroom. Likewise, the student gains experience in cross cultural ministry since they will be minister in different cultures in the future.
The mission trips also expand the horizons of each student exposing them to a variety of ministries.
About Our Names
Question: I’ve seen Rio Grande Bible Institute, Rio Grande Bible Ministries, and Rio Grande Bible College in your publications. What is the difference?
Answer: Yes, it can be confusing. Let us explain:
(1) Rio Grande Bible Institute is the historical and official name of our organization, which we will be using less often in the future.
(2) Rio Grande Bible Ministries is the new title that we use to indicate all the divisions and branches of our organization (Bible College, Language School, Radio Esperanza, video, bookstore, etc.).
(3) Rio Grande Bible College replaces Bible Institute as the title of our main academic division.
The general doctrinal position of Rio Grande Bible Ministries may be described as adherent to the view of man's universal depravity, his free will, and the security of the believer; dispensational in interpretation and biblically fundamental in doctrine.
