History


While the Institute was recently reorganized, first as the Metro Manila School of the Bible in 1989, and then as the CBS Institute in 1993, its faculty and administration have worked together for nearly fifteen years. During its early history the Institute was housed on a number of different church properties, and then in an office building in Cubao, Quezon City. In 1993 the Institute along with the Seminary moved in to their new campus on the Hilltop in Antipolo. The Institute has been led by men committed to the fundamentals of the faith and the separatist position. Over the years the Institute has seen over two hundred graduates go forth into the harvest field.

The Seminary began as an experiment in 1982. Graduates of the Institute who had done exceptionally well in their studies were aware of their need for further training. Their only options were either to go abroad for further studies or to attend a local graduate school outside their fellowship. Neither of these choices was ideal. During the 1982/1983 academic year three of these graduates met with two Institute instructors from the Christian Training and Missionary Fellowship for informal advanced studies in theology and NT Greek. All three students were by this time full time pastors. A unique concept of graduate study began to develop. The Seminary had its beginning. The Seminary now offers a program leading to a Masters degree, with an emphasis on biblical studies.
