The Hindustan Bible Institute (HBI) was established in 1952 by the late Dr. Paul V. Gupta, a converted Hindu. Having secured a saving knowledge of Christ, he had a thriving compassion for the perishing souls in India. Moved by this need, he felt the call of God to surrender his life for the purpose of reaching the people of India for Christ. To fulfill this purpose, he incorporated into his strategy a training program to equip young men and women to take the Word of God to the unreached people of India and beyond. Through the integration of the training program, he also developed a meaningful outreach program. He incorporated a program of social betterment for Indians. These structures were focused towards the salvation and betterment of the whole man.
HBI exists “to give every person an opportunity to hear, understand and respond to the Gospel and be discipled into communities of believers within their own context, so that, Christ is radiated in everything they do."
