The International Bible Academy, (IBA) is a Center for Spiritual, Human Development & Ministerial Training Registered in The Supreme Court of Queens, New York, USA. It was founded on June 1, 2011, not by the will of men, but Dr. Murphy Akrasi was divinely instructed by God and this has been confirmed by many witnesses. The call was to create a Program for Spiritual Development and Ministry training for the body of Christ.
To create an Apostolic Institute where men and women will be trained to earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the Saints. IBA is validated by the International Ministerial Counsel, USA. Duly registered at Supreme Court of Queens County, New York, USA. Since inception on June 1st, 2011, IBA has become a Mount of Transfiguration for Christian Workers and Leaders; a place of Spiritual Revival, Encounter, and Impartation. IBA is Biblical, it is Fundamental, it is Evangelical, it is Pentecostal, it is Charismatic, it is Christ-Like and God is with us at IBA.
Today IBA exists because the body of Christ which is the Christian Church depends upon informed and equipped leadership for daily progress. Through the power of the Holy Spirit of God, the church is ready to evangelize and influence the world of today.
By learning good Biblical principles, church workers and ministers are enabled to meet the demand. Whether a short term certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma or a post graduate Diploma in Theology and Ministry, IBA is teaching that which is needed today with sound instruction, balanced theology, with deep Spiritual insight.
The Chancellor of the Academy is Dr Murphy Akrasi who also is the Dean of Studies, the Academy is made up of a Governing Council of which yours truly is a member, I am proud to be among the board.
