Calvary Baptist Church
Easthampton, Massachusetts

Dear Ones:

With joy and great expectation, we announce that Heritage Baptist Institute of the Bible is reopening. The institute will be under the direction of Calvary Baptist Church of Easthampton, Massachusetts. Our mission will be twofold, to train men and women for vocational Christian service as pastors, missionaries, and educators; and to equip Christian servants to be more effective in Bible teaching and organizational skill in their local churches. Pastor John Volante will be the administrator of the school and Pastor Jim Peterson will assist him as the host pastor. HBI will be, above all things, Biblical and Baptistic in doctrine and polity.

Please find enclosed the Heritage Baptist Institute of the Bible Brochure for the academic year 2017 – 2018. Our course offerings, class dates, days, times and costs are clearly described in the brochure, along with detailed information on the various programs offered. For the first academic year HBI will operate as a night school meeting on Mondays, but we plan to expand the class offerings to Tuesday nights as enrollment increases and students pursue Diploma Programs.

For more information, please feel free to contact us at (413) 527-6252 or by Email at If you would like to speak directly to our administrator, Pastor John Volante, his personal telephone number is (860)951-6758 and his E-mail address is

Sincerely in Christ,

Pastor John Volante, Administrator
