Do you have a desire to serve God effectively? Do you want to know and be confident in what you believe? Do you want to impact your world with biblical truth? Then the Institute is for you.

Anyone is welcome to attend. To receive a diploma, you must register. But anyone and everyone is welcome to simply attend classes.


“One of my greatest concerns about the church today is the lack of biblical and theological understanding that characterizes many believers, and I am excited about this ministry undertaken by Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church. I am confident that the courses will do much to build up believers in grace and the knowledge of God through courses that are solid in biblical content and sound theologically. I am certain that the courses will acquaint students with the content of Scripture and with tools for understanding it accurately as well as helping them to develop the skill of living according to God’s revealed truth. I am pleased to see a former student engaged in such a needed ministry.”

“It is very encouraging to see a vital ministry like Bloomfield Hills Institute of Theological Studies arise to address the needs of area churches as it pertains to establishing solid ministries that are biblically sound, and practically effective. I personally know members of the Institute’s administration and faculty and recommend it heartily!”

“The teaching at the Institute is great: energetic, engaging, serious, sometimes humorous, and always insightful! Even though I have been a Christian for more than 24 years, I am learning new aspects of Christianity that are strengthening my faith and my ability to communicate the truth of the Bible. As Paul wrote to the church in Colossae, “the new man…is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created Him.”
