BBTI’s teaching is primarily practical, rather than spiritual. However, video Bible classes are offered through the Faith Bible Institute (FBI). All students and staff are encouraged to take part in FBI at East Side Baptist Church. It is held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 9:00. Even if you are a Bible college graduate, you will benefit from these classes. The cost is very reasonable, and the homework load is not difficult. Part of the BBTI application fee covers the application fee for the first semester of FBI. Faith Bible Institute classes are taught by video one night a week by John Yates, pastor of Rowland Road Baptist Church in Monroe, Louisiana. Unfortunately, there is no nursery provided, and mothers of small children may find it difficult to take part in FBI.
