Rio Grande Bible Institute exists to develop Christ-centered leaders with a biblical worldview for the global church.
To the Latin American students who study here, Rio Grande is the place where they prepare to serve the rapidly growing but needy Latin American church. The Bible Institute began in 1947 and continues to be the core of this ministry.
God has prospered both schools. More than 5,500 people, mainly from Latin and North America, have come to study
The Bible Institute curriculum includes courses in Bible, Theology, and Christian Education. But not all the learning is done in the classroom. Each weekend the students go to churches and street corners across the Rio Grande Valley to share the good news of salvation with Spanish-speaking people.
This experience gives opportunity to put their training into practice, touching the lives of men, women, youth, and children with the claims of Christ. Three factors allow student fees to be kept to a minumum:
1. Our dedicated staff, who serve as missionaries and raise their own support through churches, friends, and family;
2. The work-study program, which allows students to work on campus; and
3. Friends of the school, who give to help provide the difference between student fees and actual room and board costs.
