Eastern Panhandle Bible Institute

EPBI is accredited through Appalachian Bible College. Our desire with EPBI is to hold ongoing classes each semester as a spiritual growth and leadership development tool for area churches. The courses are designed to fulfill the requirements of a Bible Certification program (30 credit hours). This will build toward a later goal of offering an Associates Degree in Bible & Theology (61 credit hours).
