Some timid souls are afraid that we are about to witness the demise of the missionary enterprise, as the case of persecution and anti-Christian element rises with the passing of time, this is not the situation though. The Lord of the harvest has promised to be with His missionary servants till the end of the age (Matt.28.20). Dictators comes and go; kingdoms rise and fall, civilizations wax and wave, but the Worldwide Mission of the Church will continue till the end of the age, in spite of the vicissitudes of human history. Problems will increase, difficulties will always be around, costs will soar, but the Mission
will go on. The mandate will never be rescinded nor will the mission be aborted; in God’s time the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the seas (Heb.2: 14). Would you like to be one among the harvest team? It is an opportunity for you, so do not miss out on this chance to be a part of this great mssion
On one occasion during a particularly difficult period Hundson Taylor was asked, what he thought aboutthe future. He replied “The future is as bright as the promise of God”. This is still true, so let’s stand in the promise of God and march forward by faith and not by right.

The nation India has the second largest population, crossing a billion mark with the turn of the new millennium. In fact, it is sad to learn that, the percentage of Christians in this vast nation is still just 3% (including the Roman Catholics). Therefore, the need of evangelism is great. The fields are ready for harvest but we are lacking dedicated servants who would take up this challenge. Eastern Theological Institute and Seminary is committed to train up, equip and send missionaries to unreached areas. Our aim is to present everyman perfect in Christ Jesus. Every year about 45 to 55 students graduate with Degrees and Diplomas in theology. Besides, a number of Certificates are also given to those who successfully completed a short term intensive training course on Church planting and Missions.
To run a Bible College / School is not an easy task, it involves, finance, man power and a lot of dedication and without the help of God, it would end up as a failure. By faith we are being lead by the Lord, who has provided everything to us thus far. Today the main part of the costs of The Bible Institute comes from the donations of God’s people.
