Heritage Baptist Institute of the Bible Gets a New Start in 2017

Once again HBI (Heritage Baptist Institute of the Bible) reopens. Our administrator is Pastor John Volante, the founding pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. This new school year of 2018-2019 is seeing some changes. We are holding classes on Monday AND Tuesday nights, from 6:30 - 8:30 PM. Look at the sidebar on the right for the 2018-2019 School Schedule. Then pray about coming and learning more about God's Word. It matters not if you are just looking to grow your biblical knowledge or if you feel called into the ministry. Men and women can take most courses. Take a look at our Academic Programs to learn more about that. If you have any questions, feel free to at Calvary Baptist Church and speak with Pastor Jim Peterson.
