The mission of Christ Bible Institute (CBI) is to:
The mission to equip, engage, and expand is accomplished through CBI’s ministries, team, and location in Nagoya, Japan.
CBI has three distinct but connected ministries, each focusing on a specific part of the mission to equip, engage, and expand.
CBI is also involved other initiatives and projects, such as Christian Counseling for Japan (CCFJ).
CBI is a team of diverse individuals committed to working together to bless Japan.
The CBI team is made of both Japanese and missionary team members. Missionaries come from several agencies partnered with Mission to the World (MTW). The team represents a number of different denominations and backgrounds, though they could all be described as Reformed evangelicals.
Serving alongside our team are seminary students from CBS and volunteers from local churches in Nagoya. This diversity encourages discussion and unique cooperation in ministry.
CBI is a building in the center of Nagoya, Japan, only a few blocks from Nagoya Station. This is where the seminary, cafe, and other ministries are located.
The CBI building is used as a meeting place for several Christian churches and organizations, and also serves as a connection point for Christians from across Japan and the world. The cafe provides a safe and warm space for visitors and customers to experience the love of Christ regardless of their background.
