Your Journey Starts Here

Learn at Your Own Pace


Welcome to ExCEL Bible Institute.  I am very pleased that you have expressed an interest in learning more about Christianity for whatever service God has called you.  As you may be aware, EBI is our ministry. Educating the world to save the world is more than just a motto, it is our calling. 

As you look through these pages, I hope that it is apparent that we are serious about that goal.  Our classes are numerous and our courses are not the easiest, but we are proud to offer them.  We are strong in the belief that by giving people a more solid Christian educational foundation, they will better be able to go through the world and spread His word.

Often we are asked what denomination we are.  I hope that from our course work, you will see that our personal beliefs are not important. Our goal is to offer an education that is truly interdenominational. I would ask that you take the time to look at the Messiah Center Ministries information at the end of this catalog where I share more information on our beliefs within the Christian faith.  Our goal is to give you information on Christianity, to give you information on various denominational views and to give you the tools you need to make your own decisions through the scriptures.  Authors of our courses vary across the board on beliefs, and that is not by accident.  Learn the views of one and then the views of another so that you can follow the views you believe are true based on the Word of God.

I’ve referred to our program but now would like to discuss some of the advantages in more particulars. Here are just a few reasons why we are set apart from others.


We believe that EBI is on the cutting edge of contemporary Christian education. We understand that gaining an education can be very daunting, and in order to relieve some of that stress, we strive to afford each student with personal and intimate contact with staff members.  We have online programs to aid you in getting the support you need. 

Almost everything can be done online because you may use email to send your exams, ask questions about grading, obtain financial information, order transcripts or correspond with any of our staff. You can even make payments and order books online. Call the office for information about online payments.

When you complete your studies, which you will do at your own pace, you may choose to come to a beautiful area in Hampton, Virginia, in the spring of each year where we have graduation ceremonies and celebrations.  We also have class rings for those who wish to share with others their educational experience.
