Our mission

The Latvian Biblical Centre is a non-denominational school which aims to educate church leadership and lay people through practical application of God’s Word and training in ministry skills.




  • We aim to be biblical, practical, and to build godly character (1Peter 1:15-16)
  • We want to help our learners think for themselves while remaining dependent on and dedicated to the teachings of Scripture and the illumination of the Holy Spirit as their source of truth (Acts 17:11)
  • We want our learners to have practical ministry skills (Eph. 4: 11-13)
  • We want our learners to recognize God’s calling in their lives and to fulfil it
  • We want to support, equip, encourage and develop present church leadership




  • To the Bible – to submit to it as our sole authority (Matt. 4:4; 2Tim.3:16; 2Peter1:21; Josh 1:8)
  • To the local church – to support it as God’s primary agent for ministry in the world (Matt. 16:16-18; Acts 2:42-47; 1Cor.12:12ff.)
  • To the learner – to provide them with Biblical and practical skills for ministry while seeking to develop godly character (1Peter 1:15-16; 1John 2:4-6)
  • To promote obedience to Jesus’ Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20)




While we value theoretical studies and their importance to forming our thinking, we see the need to go beyond thinking and to actually applying what we learn. This practical emphasis is developed through the use of instructors experienced in ministry, a curriculum that seeks to develop ministry skills, participation in periodic seminars that seek to apply classroom lessons to life and ministry, an emphasis on practical application in learner assignments, and the required participation of learners in ministry and internships. This approach to education gives us a unique strategy as an institution of informal education.
