Welcome to The Bible Institute of South Africa
where our goal for each student is 'To Know Christ And To Make Him Known'
So, why should you choose the Bible Institute as a place to study?
Well, for starters we've been going for a long time.
The Bible Institute of South Africa was founded in 1923 as a Bible Training College for men and women.
BISA's aim then, was the same as today; to equip men and women for work in missions, ministry and the market place. Students come to us to learn ‘To Know Christ and to Make Him Known’
Using the Bible as their handbook, students from many nations have been prepared in The Word and in Practice for effective witness to people with differing worldviews in every walk of life.
...coming to BISA could be your best decision.
Theologically speaking ....
BISA is an evangelical college committed to the historical, Protestant Faith; we are non-denominational and our point of departure in all things is the Bible.
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God. It is complete in its revelation, final in its content and absolute in its authority.
Teaching God's Word at BISA, we aim to cultivate within our students a desire to obey God and to inspire hearts and minds with His Truth.
Students will study and practically engage with the Word of God and learn to handle and communicate it competently.
