A Place to Grow Academically and Spiritually

Looking for quality Bible education in Philadelphia, Chester, or southern New Jersey?  If so, you've come to the right website.  Manna Bible Institute has been part of the Philadelphia community since 1944.  That's 78 years of teaching the timeless truth of God's Word, and we're as committed today to providing students with the biblical training they're seeking as the men and women who founded the school more than seven decades ago. 

Committed to Excellence in Biblical Training

Manna is committed to biblical education that has value and relevance in the lives and ministries of its students and graduates.  Faculty and staff understand the needs and complexities of the inner-city.  Addressing the concerns of urban students and graduates is a calling we take seriously.  Urban ministry is Manna Bible Institute's specialty. 

Training God's Servants for Christian Ministry

"The Mission of Manna Bible Institute is to teach and equip students, by means of the study of the Bible and related subjects, to proclaim the Gospel, and instruct others in the Word of God, and to be prepared as missionaries, pastors, teachers, and Christian workers."

MBI has no previous educational requirements for admission to its Standard Bible Course or Christian Workers’ Certificate program.  Many new students have a high school diploma, some have college credits, but many new students have neither, but all entering students are welcome.  The Advanced School of Biblical Learning requires a Bible school diploma.

Manna is more than students and professors working together in classroom settings.  The Manna community includes alumni, churches, prayer partners, and donors who partner with students and faculty in support of Manna’s educational ministry.  This section of the website provides interactive communication with Manna’s community partners.
