With the vision of building the Christian church and of evangelizing the lost world for the ultimate goal of the glory of God, IBEI's mission is to assist local churches, in the most adequate and practical ways possible, in the formation of believers. In particular, IBEI determines to enable students in enlarging and deepening their biblical-theological knowledge, and in developing their character and their practical skills in the context of community, with an emphasis on the task of teaching of God's Word, in order to practice the principle of 2 Timothy 2:2 "And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others."
In order to achieve this mission, IBEI adopts several strategies that include:
Academic formation programs, such as the Residential School, the Extension Schools, and the Distance Learning School;
Basic formation programs, such as the IBEI-Emmaus corrispondence courses;
IBEI-Edizioni, our publishing house that produces Lux Biblica and other monographic volumes;
Conferences and seminars.
