Silverdale Baptist Church


Silverdale Bible Institute

Silverdale Bible Institute (SBI) exists to offer courses of study to anyone in the community wishing to grow in their faith and develop a deeper understanding of a more mature walk with the Lord. 

No prior level of education is required.  From students to seniors, brand new believers to more seasoned saints, or anyone desiring a friendly yet in-depth learning environment, we have worked hard to bring you a selection of classes designed to bless your life.

The scriptural base for SBI is Ephesians 4:12-16:

       for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we
      all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the
      measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be
      children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of
      men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects
      into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by
      what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of
      the body for the building up of itself in love.   

It is our goal to bring courses that are not just full of information but classes that will transform your spiritual experience with Christ.

If you desire to deepen your faith and Christian walk, Silverdale Bible Institute is for you.

SBI will:

  • Equip you for mature and fruitful service to Christ.
  • Build you up in your faith and Christian walk.
  • Unify your faith and actions with the saints of the church.
  • Assist you to attain and grow in a more mature knowledge of the Son of God.
  • Anchor your understanding of sound doctrine and strengthen your recognition of false teachings.
  • Promote your spiritual growth as a Christ-follower. 

To sum it up in three words, Silverdale Bible Institute…"Helps Believers Grow."
