The Union Bible Institute is a place where a passion for Christ and academic excellence converge.

This balance is promoted both in the classroom as well as in the ministry. Students attend UBI with the expectation that they will grow in the knowledge of the Word of God and in their ability to communicate it both orally and in writing. They will also grow in practical ministry skills that will benefit their churches and communities.
