On-Campus Students Receiving Assistance


I came to TBI for an Associate of Music Education degree and then went to another college for four years. I found that the only place that provided me with the Bible background and the true knowledge that I needed to do what God called me to do was at Texas Baptist Institute – so I decided to come back and finish a Bachelor Degree.”

— Cory Page,
Missionary in Austin Texas


It’s good to look around for a school, but if you want a place where you feel God’s presence and you want great sound doctrine, Biblical teaching, come to TBI. Here the instructors really care. It’s not all about the grades — It’s about you getting the information. That strikes me as different from most schools.”
