Who We Are

The Biblical Institute of Zagreb (BIZG) partners with pastors and ministry leaders to strengthen churches and prepare believers to live and serve in Croatia and beyond.  We provide resources, training, and supporting relationships for those who serve the churches.

Our MISSION is to provide advanced biblical-theological education and research to promote biblical truth.

We do this by

  • teaching individuals, equipping them for
    lives of Christian service,
  • supporting churches by providing
    resources and establishing networks, and
  • enriching the community with theological


Our VISION is that churches and individuals are spiritually healthy and growing, positively impacting society through the biblical message of Jesus Christ.

God doesn’t want his servants to be burned out or exhausted.  He wants them to be equipped, and to work in teams of servants who are equipped to do the work of ministry.  He wants them to be healthy and to lead healthy churches.  He wants them to have the resources that they need to teach the Bible well and to develop others who teach and serve.

The Biblical Institute meets these needs for the believers who partner with us.  We teach classes in understanding and applying the Bible.  We promote networks of servant leaders who support each other and pray for each other.  We publish resources in the Croatian language for Croatian preachers, teachers, churcher leaders, and believers.

We are here for the churches.  We are dedicated to seeing God’s Kingdom grow in Croatia with faithful, healthy churches.
