Our vision

Living Faith Bible Institute (LFBI) serves as an advanced equipping arm of like-minded churches whose mission is to mold every member into the image of Christ and mobilize them to minister the Word of God to the world. To this end, LFBI utilizes experienced pastoral leaders to equip men and women of the church to function as shepherds of God’s people through a structured curriculum that is centered on the Word of God. Our goal is to offer, at a reasonable cost, a practical study that develops biblical leadership in a environment conducive to learning to live God’s Word.

Our methodology


Our instructional philosophy is to establish a biblical perspective of ministry in the lives of growing Christian leaders. We desire to teach students how to confidently identify the will of God in the scriptures, laying a foundation for their future ministry vision and involvement. We strive to create flexible learning experiences including online, designated and localized LFBI classrooms, and local church viewing groups.


We place a strong emphasis on application of knowledge and living out biblical teaching in the context of serving within the local church. Comprehension is measured through summative (academic) and formative (observational) assessments in conjunction with students local church ministry. We strive to ensure that students understand their biblical purpose thereby being accountable to live the commission of God in virtue and strength.


We teach students how to practically apply their knowledge of God's word and his eternal plan so they can be responsible to lead God's people in the work of evangelism, discipleship, and missions.
