On-Campus Students Receiving Assistance



I came to TBI for an Associate of Music Education degree and then went to another college for four years. I found that the only place that provided me with the Bible background and the true knowledge that I needed to do what God called me to do was at Texas Baptist Institute – so I decided to come back and finish a Bachelor Degree.”

— Cory Page



It’s good to look around for a school, but if you want a place where you feel God’s presence and you want great sound doctrine, Biblical teaching, come to TBI. Here the instructors really care. It’s not all about the grades — It’s about you getting the information. That strikes me as different from most schools.”

–Josh Woolridge

The Bible Certificate Program provides the opportunity to Bible leaders, Sunday school teachers and small group leaders, who desire to increase Bible knowledge, to take classes at Texas Baptist Institute and Seminary without the stress of time restraints or grades. All courses are online. Upon completion of the outlined course of study, the student will be presented with a Bible Certificate.
