Please note -
Enrollment and completion of studies does not merit endorsement of any student by the administration, faculty and staff of Tripp Bible Institute. Students may enroll with beliefs and practices contrary to Bible teaching. All students are treated with the highest respect and courtesy regardless of their religious beliefs and practices.
Treating all students with respect and courtesy does NOT mean that Tripp Bible Institute is willing to compromise any Bible truth in order to appease any student. It is never our intention to offend anyone, but we will in a kind, loving, and forthright manner expose and oppose any and all religious doctrines and practices which are not scriptural (Colossians 3:16-17).
