History of HBI
The Hindustan Bible Institute was established in 1952 by the late Dr. Paul V. Gupta, a converted Hindu. Having secured a saving knowledge of Christ, he had a thriving compassion for the perishing souls in India. Moved by this need, he felt the call of God to surrender his life for the purpose of reaching the people of India for Christ. To fulfill this purpose, he incorporated into his strategy a training program to equip young men and women to take the Word of God to the unreached people of India and beyond. Through the integration of the training program, he also developed a meaningful outreach program. He incorporated a program of social betterment for Indians. These structures were focused towards the salvation and betterment of the whole man.
The Hindustan Bible Institute & College was started in an unpretentious building, housing 5 students. Today, the Hindustan Bible Institute and college is on a landscape of about 7 acres of land having thus far prepared over 11,400 young men and women who are presently serving the Lord faithfully all over the nation and in all continents- rendering effective ministry to ecclesiastical, educational, para ecclesiastical, missiological and sociological structures. This evidently reveals the unique and significant role that HBI plays in the vineyard of the Lord.
