Message from the President

We want to produce men and women who have been definitely impacted through our ministry; men and women who manifest Godly character and integrity; who know and handle the Word well; who demonstrate a solid doctrinal understanding and proficiency; who have an accurate and intimate knowledge of the world's needs and a vision for ministry; and who embrace a personal commitment to the task of making disciples of all nations."

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.


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 audit.
