About TIBI

At TIBI–Texas International Bible Institute, or IBIT in Spanish–our mission is to make disciples who will make other disciples, planting and nurturing churches that are biblical, evangelistic, mature, and relevant.

The textual or ministerial information which our students learn at TIBI is only a part of what we teach.  We are convinced that we must also help students think clearly, in a creative, logical, and profound fashion.   Since it’s impossible to teach all Bible text and ministry skills in just two years, we emphasis the process of how to think, organize, and share what they learn here.

In addition, the atmosphere which we create for students is critically important.  We know that, along with all the good which students bring, there will also be differences of opinion, difficulties, and misunderstandings that emerge due to different backgrounds and distinct personalities which the students bring to TIBI.

We strongly believe that TIBI should be a safe, receptive place, where students can seek answers to difficult questions, make mistakes, and disagree with others–but do so with respect and love for all.  We want to set the example for how to maintain and open dialogue, seeking the truth passionately, even if at the end of the discussion we may not all be in agreement in every detail.

But we can be united in the core gospel–the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Christ, and how one is saved through Him.  This gospel we read in places such as 1º Corinthians  15:1-4,  Matthew 22:37-40, Matthew 23:23, and Ephesians 4:4-6.
