FBI exists to prepare people spiritually and intellectually, through the Holy Scriptures, to declare the good news of Jesus Christ.

The United States is the third largest mission field in the world. Though our country was founded on Christian principles, it is increasingly apparent that many people are rejecting those principles in favor of self-defined, not God-defined, behavior. America is losing its way and at times it may seem the Church is losing ground in its work to evangelize our country.

Rather than get discouraged by what is happening we should get excited about the opportunities to impact our nation and how ministries like UBTC are available to prepare us for seizing these opportunities.

FBI emerged from the Urban Bible Training Centers initiative, which began in 1990 as a ministry of the Assemblies of God combining the efforts of Global University and Assemblies of God U.S. Missions. Tampa Bay Center was started in 1994 and has since graduated over 200 (and counting) students who now serve in a variety of ministries in the Tampa Bay Area as well as across the state, the nation and the world.


Florida Bible Institute (FBI) is a ministry of Gateway Christian Center, AG in partnership with Global University's Berean School of the Bible.
