Moody Bible Institute

Chicago, Illinois, United States
Your Moody education begins in the Word. Every student in every major spends more time studying the Bible than any other book. Intense academic study comes alive through strategic volunteer opportunities, as our students make the leap from learning the Word to living it while they do ministry.



Early in 1883, several Chicago residents began meeting weekly with Dryer to pray that Moody would return to Chicago and develop the new school. During a Jan. 22, 1886 meeting in Chicago to discuss city evangelization, the subject of a training school again came up. By this time Dryer's persistent message had taken hold in Moody's heart. 


In keeping with the mission statement and philosophy of the Undergraduate School, the following values provide a framework for the student educational experience and a basis for assessing student progress.
