We hold that the entire Holy Bible (Old Testament and New Testament) is the divinely inspired, inerrant and complete word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We hold that Jesus of Nazareth is the only begotten Son of God who takes away the sins of the world (Matthew 1:21; John 1:19; 3:16).
We hold that all people of every race and nationality have been made in the likeness of God, and that there is no partiality (bias) with God (Genesis 1:16-28; Acts 10:34-35).
We hold that those accountable people of every race and nationality who obey the Lord God from the heart (sincerely) will be saved by the God's grace, their sins washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ and will be added by the Lord as one of the saved to His blood-bought church (Matthew 7:21; Acts 2:41, 47; Acts 20:28; Acts 22:16; Ephesians 5:23; Hebrews 5:9; Revelation 1:5).

Greetings to T.B.I.!
I am thrilled with all I am actually learning. I have taken many Bible studies, but I learn better with this one. Thanks T.B.I. again - and may God bless all your work!
Annrose Garrett - Pickens, South Carolina
Tripp Bible Institute,
I find your lessons very knowledgeable and a very helpful tool. I must be honest. At first I thought these little books can't get me the benefit of growing as a Christian should, but I was so wrong. I was very intrigued by all this knowledge in such a booklet.
Irene Dortch - Sterling Heights, Michigan
Tripp Biblel Institute,
I have enjoyed my studies and the extensive and knowledgeable way that the study material is presented in the lessons.
Greg Wardrup - Jacksonville, Florida
Tripp Bible Institute,
I love the way you explain words in the parentheses. It makes the meaning much clearer and adds a lot of depth to the statement.
Edward Niles Lovar - Ruffs Dale, Pennsylvania
Tripp Bible Institute,
I do very much enjoy the lessons and look forward to continuing my studies. Also, I really appreciate being able to pay using Pay Pal. A great convenience!
Sharon ODonnell - Tallmade, Ohio
Dear Mr. Tripp,
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be able to take a course like this. It is very hard to find time to take any classes now days and be able to work and support a family at the same time. Your classes are wonderful for someone like me and for those who are self-paced. This has been a journey that has been beneficial and helpful. I am looking forward to receiving my degree and displaying it proudly. I am also looking forward to continuing on to the next degree. God Bless!
Joseph Robert Carmichael - Bradley, Arkansas
I was impressed with the presentation and content of the First Set of Lessons. I found them to be Biblically sound, explicit, and to provide a literate Biblical Study with valuable educational value. I have gained much benefit from the studies by "re-learning," and in fact, "learning anew" valuable information and insights into the Holy Scriptures. Thank you for the opportunity to study with the Tripp Bible Institute.
Curtis E. Smith, Ph.D., Psy.D. - Anaheim, California
I would like to thank the school for all it has given to others who want to know more about the Lord.
Carolyn Clark - Shreveport, Louisiana
Tripp Bible Institute Staff,
It has been a real spiritual blessing to study with TRIPP, and it will always be from the bottom of my heart to recommend this college to those who are genuinely seeking for truth to enhance the world of those Lord. Thanks and continue the good work.
Dr. Samson Ochieng Mumbo - Poughkeepsie, New York
I wanted to let you know that I learned a lot from taking the Crisis counseling 1-3. Those books were loaded with lots of helpful information. I'm not sure if I will have all of the counseling class books that you have available when I finish my doctorate but please make sure I get everything you offer in counseling. You did an outstanding job on preparing these books. After reading these 3 books a doing the homework it made me realize that you are a man full of wisdom.

Dear Trip Bible Institute,

Kenneth L. Skillern - Sugar Land, Texas
"TBI has been a blessing to me. I love the solidly biblical and Bible only approach to the studies and the methodical and meticulous approach to studying the books of the Bible. I have learned some new things, relearned some old things, and refreshed my thinking on many things."
Dr. Timothy Paul Fair - Newbern, Tennessee
To Whom It May Concern:
Thank you for the opportunity to study God's Word through your institute. The reason I continued my studies with your organization was every course was so scriptural.
James A. Ralls - Front Royal, Virginia
I just wanted to take the time to tell your wife that she did a wonderful job at preparing the lessons for the Book of Ruth and the Book of Esther. I have read them many times but after reading the scriptures and answering the questions in the book, I will never forget these books of the Bible. What I like about your college is the way that you prepare these lessons. You prepare lessons in such a way that no one could ever forget. Thanks.
Jesse Earl Rhodes, Jr. - Selma, North Carolina
Dear Dr. Tripp & Staff,
I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful and godly educational experience I have received at Tripp Bible Institute. The past years I spent at TBI were a time of growth for me as I grew in my relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ. The lessons comprising the Chaplaincy Program were scripturally sound, challenging, and caused me to keep deeper into God's word. I would recommend Tripp Bible Institute for the serious student of God's word! Keep serving the Lord with excellence. Blessings!
Eric W. Cook (Chaplain) - Central Islip, New York
