“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent?” Romans 10:14-15
How will they preach unless they are trained?
THE LATIN AMERICAN BIBLE INSTITUTE OF MEXICALI (LABIM) IS TRAINING THOSE WHO KNOW & UNDERSTAND THE HISPANIC CULTURE AND SPEAK THE SPANISH LANGUAGE, CONTINUING THE GOD’S CHARGE GIVEN TROUGH THE APOSTLE PAUL: “THE THINGS WHICH YOU HAVE HEARD FROM ME IN THE PRESENCE OF MANY WITNESSES, ENTRUST THESE TO FAITHFUL MEN WHO WILL BE ABLE TO TEACH OTHERS ALSO.” 2 TIMOTHY 2:2
Every community deserves to have a congregation of the Lord’s church, whether in México, Central America, or the United States. That’s the goal for the Latin American Bible Institute. The United States has a national education system that says it will “leave no child behind.” As the Lord’s church, can we leave any state, town, or neighborhood behind?
We don’t have enough qualified Hispanic preachers to fill or establish churches all across the country. So, how do we address this situation? By teaching faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
In 1970 there were 10 million Hispanic people living in the United States; today there are at least 50 million. Most have not heard the truth Gospel of Christ.
What does this Bible Institute prepare you for?
1. To adequately handle the truth,
2. To expand the kingdom of God within the growing Hispanic community,
3. To address the needs of our changing world with the gospel of Jesus Christ,
4. To renovate declining congregations due to population shift.
LABIM graduates receive a certificate or Bachelor’s degree in Bible Studies from Sunset International Bible Institute (www.sibi.cc).

LABIM is also looking for more partners to support the efforts began by God almost two thousand years ago when the Apostle Peter stood up, filled by the Holy Spirit, and began to speak the good news, “… each one heard them speaking in his own language” Acts 2:6
Will you send others like Daniel and David to the harvest field? Through LABIm, you can do that.
In the United States we also need bilingual Hispanic preachers and teachers to grow congregations that can reach both English and Spanish speaking people.
