Equipping the Saints & Encouragement Through Education

The Catawba River Baptist Bible Institute’s vision is to equip Pastors, Sunday school teachers, and all Christians with a stronger understanding of the Bible so that they can serve and witness more effectively.

God’s Word changes lives. We believe this, and the churches of the Catawba River Baptist Association preach and teach the Bible through their preaching, Sunday school, discipleship, and other ministries. Catawba River Baptist Bible Institute exists to strengthen the churches of our Association by providing biblical, theological, and practical ministerial education at a deeper level than is usually appropriate for the local church.
