Moody is driven by the belief that people committed to living and declaring the Word of God can actually change the world. Since our founding by D.L. Moody in 1886, Moody Bible Institute has been committed to equipping people across the globe, cultures and generations to take the next step toward spiritual maturity. 

For more than 125 years, people have come to Moody to be richly equipped in God's Word to impact the world for Christ. Generations of Christ-followers at Moody have committed themselves to studying the Bible and compassionately sharing it with the world.

  • D.L. Moody's Story

    Sunday_School-sepia.jpgEvangelist, teacher, urban ministry leader

    D.L. Moody arrived in Chicago in 1856 with dreams of making a fortune in the shoe business. Deeply burdened by the city's poor, uneducated children, Moody's mission quickly shifted to teaching them the Bible. These initial Sunday school meetings in a converted saloon birthed Moody Bible Institute and the ministries that followed.

    D.L. Moody's passion for honoring God's call on his life and his heart for serving others is the foundation for each of Moody's ministries. From its beginnings and through today, Moody Bible Institute has followed the example of its founder to be a practical, compassionate pioneer in training a multicultural, multi-generational worldwide network of influencers to impact the world for Christ.

  • Steeped in History

    There have been many key moments in the history of Moody Bible Institute, like the founding of the Moody Evangelical Society (the pre-curson to Moody Bible Institute) and Moody Aviation.

    Many influential people have been behind Moody's far-reaching ministry, like Emma Dryer, the teacher who inspired D.L. Moody to begin his training school, and George Beverly Shea, the award-winning soloist on the Billy Graham Crusades.

    Moody has also had many groundbreaking milestones in Christian media, like the launch of WMBI, the oldest non-commercial Christian radio station in the U.S., and the Moody Institute of Science, whose films taught a generation about God's creation.
