Victorious Living Bible Institute, Inc., an affiliate of Christian Bible Institute and Seminary, is a nondenominational Bible institute founded on July 25, 2017 as part of the Christian Education Department of The Upper Room Outreach Ministries, Inc. based in the beautiful city of Waycross, Georgia. Having a strong passion for teaching, it was the dream of Dr. Renae Sellers to start a bible college to equip others in the Word of God. With the encouragement, motivation and love of her husband, Samuel Sellers, III, and her church family, this dream became a reality. On August 18, 2018, VLBI partnered with Greater Victory Fellowship Kenya to establish onsite classes with Bishop Emmanuel B. Simiyu as lead instructor. On April 27, 2019, our Kenya Campus was officially launched.
Our mission is to provide a quality educational experience with a solid Christian foundation that will equip men and women of God with the knowledge, skills, and education essential to be productive and functioning parts of the Body of Christ
Our vision is to see Christian men and women impact the world for the glory of God
VLBI is fully accredited by Accrediting Commission for Biblical Higher Education. Accreditation indicates the willingness of VLBI to become examined by a third party organization. It openly allows analysis of our policies and practices. Accreditation is purely voluntary in nature. Accreditation of a Bible college or seminary gives a "seal of approval" for those who are attempting to find out where they would like to attend school.

National Association of Christian Counselors
VLBI is in partnership with the National Association of Christian Counselors and is a certified training center, providing training for local Pastors and other Believers who feel the call of God to counsel. Once trained, counselors are provided with credentials through the National Association of Christian Counselors. Our goal is to offer counseling to those in need of help and training for those who desire to help others. Our program will also provide students with the experiential learning necessary for working in the field of Christian counseling. (www.nacconline.org)
