Keystone Bible Institute
The Heart & Mind of Hands-on ministry
Keystone Bible Institute (KBI) was established in 2004 with a vision of training the MIND and stirring the HEART of God’s people through God’s Word and Spirit, then putting our HANDS to the work of ministry. KBI is a life-changing Bible School that provides foundation instruction for you to transform your communities, congregations, and the world for the glory of God.
