Dr. Olivia Toval Hines founded Logos Bible Institute in 1996 to provide college level instruction for men and women in the basics of the Christian faith including the fundamental doctrines. Dr. Hines believed that most of the doctrinal errors that existed in the church came from within the church because of tradition and a failure to study, understand and properly apply the word of God. The purpose of the institute is to instruct men and women in the truths of God's word so that they could instruct other men and women in these same truths and doctrines. The goal is to provide men and women with a deeper knowledge and understanding of the word of God and to equip them for any task that God has called them to do.
We believe that the bible is the holy and inspired word of God. It is our belief that all knowledge begins with the knowledge of God. Therefore, we are confident and do proclaim that the truths of the bible are entrusted to us that we may act in accordance with 2 Timothy 2:2.
We instruct men and women in the truths of God’s word that they may be able to instruct other men and women in these same truths and doctrines.
The Institute focuses on preparing the individual both academically and spiritually for service. The emphasis at Logos is to equip the whole person, body, soul and spirit for effectiveness in ministry and in life
In keeping with our goals and objectives Logos Bible Institute caters to serious students with time restraints.
The average student has been away from the classroom for sometime and is returning with valuable life experience that is evaluated for credit in the program of studies.
Anyone who has a call on their life, ministers, pastors, missionaries, church leaders and those who have a desire to learn more about their faith in order to work, war and witness for the kingdom are invited to attend.
Logos Bible Institute offers a program designed to meet the needs of the students. Students who feel a special call to the ministry or lay students can feel equally as comfortable with the curriculum.
The student must also complete two semesters of internship at the Logos Christian Center getting hands on experience if he wishes to receive credit for Ministry related studies.
