History of EBC

A Humble Beginning...

The Ebenezer Bible Institute was established in 1969 at Kumily in Idukki District of Kerala by its Founder President, Pastor Chacko Mani. It was a humble beginning. Later, God provided it with prayer partners, co-workers and students with commitment to ministry. In answer to our prayer for a spacious campus, God provided us with a beautiful campus of 14 acres having road and rail facilities at Kaduthuruthy beside the Kottayam – Ernakulam highway.

In 1979, Ebenezer Bible Institute was upgraded to Ebenezer Bible College. In 2002, EBC obtained the accreditation of Asia Theological Association (ATA) for Dip.Th and B.Th programs. In 2005, EBC started its M.Div Program. In 2008, God enabled us to start M.Div in Distance mode to enable many men and women to prepare themselves for ministry in spite of their inconvenience in doing a full-time program. EBC obtained ATA accreditation for its M.Div (Distance) program in 2011. EBC remains as an independent and evangelical theological institution while cherishing its missionary zeal and vision.
