THE NEED FOR A TRAINING PROGRAM May 1995 - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin Over 60 concerned Grace leaders met to pray and discuss the formation of a training program to produce much needed pastors, missionaries, and local church workers.
Representing well over 50 years as part of the Grace Movement and tracing its mid-Acts dispensational roots back to the Apostle Paul, this session voiced a need for a Bible Institute training program for leaders in today’s Grace assemblies.
This focused goal would necessitate equally focused founders, faculty, students, and constituency. It was decided that the school would operate free from all government assistance programs and be solely maintained by God’s supply via His people. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin area was chosen as a central location for the training Institute.

Berean Bible Institute is a school of college level adult education that provides sound biblical and doctrinal studies.
We also provide training in ministry and leadership skills to help individuals become prepared to do the work of the ministry in local churches and on the mission field.
To make the Gospel of Jesus Christ known to the lost throughout the world.
To edify believers and promote personal Bible study.
Without reservation, all teaching at BBI is carried out according to the biblical principle of “rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (II Tim. 2:15) in light of the distinctive message of God’s matchless Grace revealed to and through the Apostle Paul. BBI promotes the universal proclamation of “Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery” (Rom. 16:25) both to the world and to the church.
RESEARCH AND PLANNING Summer and Fall 1995 The research and planning committees convened under the auspices of the Berean Bible Society Board of Directors. The consensus was to have the school operational by the fall of 1996. However, the Board realized the exact timing would be completely in God’s power.

The Need of the Hour The over-riding burden of the hour is to equip godly and committed students to enter the ministry of “preaching Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery.” The school will teach all Scripture in accordance with the dispensational principle of “rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (II Tim. 2:15).
