Spiritual Emphasis

At Penn View Bible Institute, we place great importance on the spiritual development of our students. We believe that a meaningful relationship with the Lord, which truly fulfills human needs, does not happen automatically or by chance. It requires intentional cultivation. Devout Christians have discovered that the best way to nurture this relationship is through personal Bible study, prayer, and participation in public worship. We encourage prospective students to establish a daily routine for devotions if they have not already done so. Ideally, this time should be consistent each day to foster a steady Christian life.
