​The West Tennessee Bible Institute is a theological seminary designed to assist and train those who have been called to the ministry. WTBI operates as a correspondence school, making it possible for ministerial students to earn a non-accredited, college level Theological Degree, and yet be active in their local church.​ The West Tennessee Bible Institute upholds the Bible as the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God (Proverbs 30:5). It is the position of this institute that the Holy Scripture (2 Tim. 3:15) has been 

preserved in the English Authorized King James Version, and are thereby "given by inspiration of God" (2 Tim. 3:16).
