Moody Bible Institute


Moody Bible Institute (Moody) began in 1887 to equip and motivate people to advance the cause of Christ through ministries that educate, edify and evangelize.  Moody executes its purpose primarily through three avenues:  (1) Conducting Christian educational activities through undergraduate, seminary, and distance learning divisions and conference ministries, (2) Publishing and distributing evangelical Christian literature, and (3) Producing and broadcasting Christian radio programs. A Moody distinctive is its long held tuition-paid education model for full-time undergraduate students studying on the Chicago campus, which is financed through contributions.  Moody Bible Institute aims to equip people with God’s Word to be maturing followers of Christ who are making disciples around the world.
