About BISA

The Bible Institute of South Africa was founded in 1923 and was established as an evangelical and interdenominational training centre. From the very beginning it has been our aim to train and equip men and women to know Christ and to make Him known.

BISA has a long record of consistently and faithfully training ministers, missionaries, lecturers, teachers and church workers in Bible and theology. Moreover, many Christians have been better prepared for effective witness in the professional world. Students are drawn from, and go out to minister in, many different countries in Africa and the wider world.

  • BI has been a great blessing to me in a way that words cannot explain. I do not regret coming to BI at all. I have experiences growth in my life, especially in handling the Word of God with diligence. Now I can preach and do Bible Studies with confidence knowing that I have been equipped with the right tools that will help me in my ministry for the rest of my life.
    -Sizwe Maseti (2nd-yr BTh)
  • Viv met Margie Campbell whilst studying at the Bible Institute. They married some time later and this is what he says... "Everything Margie and I do now, every decision we make, is rooted in our worldview that we received at BI"
    -Vivian Potgieter (Campus Minister with the YMCA at Bellville CPUT)
  • "My experience at BI is without doubt one of the greatest blessings the Lord has enriched my life with. I never would have anticipated such equipping for ministry by way of Christ-centred lectures from godly people, stimulating conversations, interactions with friends of diverse cultural and theological backgrounds, and simply just doing life on campus."
    -Victor Emma-Ad amah (Current BTh (Hons) student)
  • Before coming to BI I was battling with assurance of salvation, a struggle that had been consuming my life for years. During the year I spent there among godly lecturers and fellow students, God just opened my eyes to what he had already been doing in my life through this struggle. I saw Him at work, and experienced Him in ways I never could have imagined.
