PROGRAMS OF STUDY

ALASKA BIBLE INSTITUTE COMBINES EDUCATION WITH TRANSFORMATION.

ABI uniquely couples theological instruction with intensely practical ministry expertise from Christian leaders, teachers, pastors, and theologians from a wide-range of gospel-focused Christ-centered theological backgrounds. The curriculum, educational philosophy, and atmosphere are unique in that they are both practically oriented and academically rigorous.  We continue to equip families, pastors, missionaries, and individuals with a life-fulfilling passion for Christ’s gospel and a genuine love for people.
