BBIS was founded by Dr. Ron Phillips and Dr. Alan Johnston out of their shared burden for a system whereby laity, preachers, missionaries, evangelists and those called into a Christian vocation could receive a quality Bible school education without being disruptive to the demands of their families and careers. Our goal has always been balance-we believe that doctrinal soundness is vital, and we also believe that the Holy Spirit is still operating today. We believe that scholarship is spiritual. We also believe that an abiding, conversational relationship with God is necessary. Berea is for those who seek a sound Bible based education, whether for personal or professional, or career advancement.
