Welcome to
Southwest Florida Bible Institute
Teaching and equipping with the inerrant, infallible, immutable Word of God

Thank You for choosing Southwest Florida Bible Institute for your Christian education needs. Today, many Christians are looking for a deeper understanding of God’s Word, a need which may not be fully met in a basic Sunday school class or home Bible study.
Others want to work towards a degree in preparation for local church ministry or serious Bible teaching.


We at Southwest Florida Bible Institute want to assist the Christian in the search for answers. Self-study can be difficult and frustrating.  SWFBI will provide solid instruction in the Word of God and do it effectively. We offer many courses that a Bible college or Seminary would offer and just challenging enough to "stretch" you without "breaking" you.  You'll grow in faith, assurance and confidence as you learn with other believers and find "you can do it!"


Our desire is for you to be prepared to rightly teach the Word of God and be confident to answer those tough questions posed by family, friends, co-workers or the Sunday school student. We endeavor to help you achieve your goals no matter what they are.

In Christ,

Pastor Forest Wood

1. SWFBI does not offer on-line courses. All courses are offered at the Institute only.
