Biblically Grounded

Our Denomination

Christian Leaders Institute is non-denominational and draws from the rich Biblical perspectives that resonate in many denominations and traditions of Christendom.

At the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI), we firmly believe in the power of unity in Christ. Ephesians 4:3 instructs us to “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace,” underlining the transformative impact of Christian leadership.

CLI also embraces many Christian traditions as a well-rounded educational institution. We respect the Bible as the Word of God, as highlighted in 2 Timothy 3:16 while acknowledging and valuing the diversity of perspectives within the Christian community. Our commitment is to foster an environment where different viewpoints can be expressed, allowing us to learn from one another and work together to serve God’s kingdom.
