                               General Information
                             THE ANTIOCH BIBLE INSTITUTE

HISTORY
In 1986, the Reverend Dr. Marvin J. Bentley, Senior Pastor of the Antioch Baptist Church of
Corona, presented a Mandate for Ministry to the congregation, for affirmation of the goals for a
ministry for the church. Part of the Mandate was to establish a place that would equip the
members and community to grow spiritually, as well as develop and enhance their gifts and
talents. A Bible Institute was the idea that Pastor Bentley and the Assistant Pastor, Reverend Dr.
Laura B. Sinclair talked about establishing. They realized that in the Corona/East Elmhurst and
Jackson Height area no such institute existed.

In January of 1996, Ms. Miranda Smalls was elected as the Director of Christian Education of the
Antioch Baptist Church of Corona. It was at this time that Rev. Bentley stated that he wanted the
Institute to get started in September of 1996.

PURPOSE
The Antioch Bible Institute (ABI) is a year-round Christian Education Institute designed to
instruct, enlighten, and equip Christians to become more effective disciples for Christ.

The Institute offers several courses in the following areas: Biblical Study, Church History,
Doctrine, Christian Living, Christian Leadership Development, African American Studies and
other ministries. Liberal Arts courses are also offered as part of the program. Courses are
offered on Monday through Friday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 pm and on Saturdays from
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

ACCREDITATION
The Antioch Baptist Church of Corona, which is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches-
USA, certifies the Institute. ABI also has an articulation agreement with Nyack College.

ENROLLMENT
The Antioch Bible Institute is open to anyone having the desire to learn and enhance him or
herself spiritually and academically. Students can elect to take courses to earn college credits or
to earn one of three Certificates - the ABI Christian Foundation Certificate, the Christian
Leadership Certificate or the Advanced Ministries Certificate.
