The merging of vision of Bethel Agricultural Fellowship and the vision of Friends Missionary Prayer Band gave birth to the emergence of Bethel Bible Institute- A centre for theological studies. Missionary Training Centre of the Friends Missionary Prayer Band, originally started in 1971 at Tuticorin, was moved to Bethel campus in Danish pet in 1974. Thus resulted in renewed thrust of training-up of pastors, missionaries, social workers and leaders thus making it an ideal place for theological studies with an emphasis on Mission, where FMPB, NSM, BAF, ICGM and other related organizations send their candidates for their ministerial formation. The Institute imparts a holistic training by offering students enough opportunities to be effectively involved in mission, evangelism, pastoral ministry and social action.
