Welcome


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,


Rev. Dr. James Scafidi

Statement of Faith

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, and only inerrant, infallible, immutable, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
