“Being just good enough” is the greatest enemy of “being the very best.” “Being just good enough” implies living a life of compromise and complacency, giving in and giving up, being easily satisfied and seeking safety and security. “Being the very best” implies living a life of courage and commitment, growing up and growing in significance, being purposeful and intentional, taking risks and rising to the occasion, living a disciplined life, and being devoted to a cause that makes a difference.
At Guido Bible College what drives us to be our very best is our deep commitment to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. We are committed to three words: Connect, Equip, and Send. Our mission is to train the next generation of Sowers to Connect people to a growing relationship with Jesus, equip people for their purpose, and send people to fill the earth with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord through sharing the Gospel. These three words: connect, equip, and send are the foundation and focus of all we do and what we want our students to do.
At Guido Bible College we are passionate about Connecting people to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. This happens through the proclamation of the Gospel. The Gospel is the Good News that Jesus, through His life, death, and resurrection, has made a way for us to be reconciled to God. Training the next generation of Sowers to carry the Gospel into the world so that others are connected to a growing relationship with Jesus is an essential part of who we are and what we do.
Equipping people for their purpose is also a vital part of our mission. Equipping people includes laying a biblical foundation, bringing our worldview, or how we see God, ourselves, others, and the world, into alignment with God’s Word, and practically training people for the work of ministry. Through God’s Word people can be thoroughly equipped for every good work. Our goal is that every student entrusted to us is equipped so that their preparation is equal to their potential.
Jesus said to His disciples, “Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Connecting and equipping are not the ends in themselves. They are a means to see more people sent into the “harvest fields”. We are dedicated to seeing men and women discover their calling and engage in the work of ministry. We believe God has called us to send His people, thoroughly equipped, into the world to be disciple makers as leaders of their families, churches, and communities.
We give our very best because God gave us His very best in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the clearest revelation of God’s love, grace, mercy and hope for the world and especially for us, His servants. He is the object of our devotion and our only motivation for what we do: “So that in everything He might have the preeminence.”
We invite you to become a part of us as we connect, equip, and send God’s people into the world.
