ABOUT US

Masters Training Institue operates as a ministry of Tomah Baptist Church. Founded by the grace of God, MTI has grown in the last few years to include accredited Bible college degree and course programs.

Whether you are between colleges, need a few Bible courses, just getting started in your study of the Bible, or have been a Christian for years and just want to study God's Word more indepth, you will realize that Masters Training Institue is a great place to grow in the Lord. Masters Training Institue exists to help train the next generation of God's servants.

PHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY

The Masters Training Institue is deeply committed to the importance of seeing the local church be all that God has called it to be, and to accomplish all that God has called it to accomplish. Those who serve toward this end understand the challenges of the call. MTI was formed as a local church ministry with the purpose of helping local churches accomplish the God-given mandates of the Great Commission.

OUR GOAL

As a primary goal, the administration of MTI is dedicated to providing quality, systematic, theological instruction to its students in helping to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

The administration of MTI is pleased that students may pursue a structured course of instruction that can include a biblical studies degree, but we feel that our primary purpose is that of equipping saints for effective ministry, not that of granting degrees. Regardless of outside accreditation, the administration of MTI is committed to producing an academic standard that equals or exceeds the expectations for these levels of study. We believe that the truest measure of quality will be the students who become thoroughly equipped in their ability to “rightly divide the Word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15).

Purpose

Stated in simple terms, the purpose of MTI is to see God progressively glorified through the equipping of God’s people for effective service and ministry in accordance with the words the Apostle Paul wrote to young Timothy, “The things which you have heard from me . . . these entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim 2:2).

OUR MISSION

The Masters Training Institue has a threefold mission, which we believe God has directed at this time:

To provide a well-rounded Bible knowledge to God’s people in our church, and in any others in our area. A people knowledgeable of God’s Word are less likely to be removed.

To make available the opportunity for young people to earn college credits at greatly reduced costs, while staying at home. This would allow them the opportunity to earn as they go, and save for the rest of their college training.

To truly allow the Bible colleges to be an arm and a servant to the local churches, which God has exclusively ordained as the training place and “pillar and ground of truth” for His people.

 

LEGAL

The school has filed to operate at a state and federal level as a 501-C3 non-profit corporation. Masters Training Institue operates under, and according to, the guidelines of the Wisconsin Board of Higher Education as an institution that grants theological instruction. With this filing under the Wisconsin Board of Higher Education, MTI provides instruction in the realm of Bible and theology, but does not provide instruction at the general, liberal arts level.

 



Why MTI

While MTI has no desire or ability to replace the fine, biblical colleges and seminaries that are equipping men and women for ministry, we do believe that there are several practical reasons this kind of ministry fills a crucial role for the local church: (1) for many people there is a huge practical difficulty in relocating to pursue such instruction; (2) for many people who desire this instruction, the costs of such instruction present a huge challenge; (3) for those who can make such choices, this often means having to pull out of a home church where fruitful ministry is already taking place. As appropriate for each personal situation, MTI’s goal is to help God’s people become well-equipped in sound theology and ministry principles so that they can continue to serve in the context of their own home church.
