Vision of the Bible Institute
We see the Bible Institute at New Life Christian Center as a teaching and training resource for our community and for the churches of the entire Central Pacific District and intern program at Old Oak Ranch (Sierra Foursquare Ministries).
Our Mission at the Bible Institute is to:
- Love God, His Word, His People.
- Grow In Grace, Knowledge, Wisdom.
- Serve God, His Kingdom, His Church, His People.
We do this by being a center for ministry education and training through a Bible College Setting.
Equipping the Saints
"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13
The Bible Institute at New Life Christian Center is a Foursquare Affiliate and operates
under the guidelines of Foursquare International.
