What is the Deaf Bible Institute?

The Deaf Bible Institute (DBI) is a free Bible study program only for Deaf people (adults and teens). The DBI teaches sound Bible doctrine and principles. Available online or by postal mail, this program will help Deaf people learn more about the Word of God conveniently at home or church.

Hundreds of deaf people have enrolled and say, “It is just like Bible college.”
