Latin American Christian Institute


"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

Romans 10:14-15 NIV

The Latin American Christian Institute (LACI) is a duly organized California 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.  LACI collects contributions and does fundraising to operate a Latin American religious educational ministry at Instituto Biblico Latino Americano (IBLA)in Tijuana, Mexico.  IBLA is a duly organized non-profit pursuant to the Mexican government operated under the Centro Internacional de Desarrollo Integral A.C. in Mexico.

By establishing non-profit organizations on both sides of the United States and Mexican borders, LACI is in full compliance with all non-profit rules and regulations, and therefore your contribution which is given in the United States is lawfully transferred to Mexico in support of our Latin American missions work. We invite you to visit the campus, meet the students, fellowship and share a meal, and see your contributions at work. To arrange a visit to IBLA, please contact us by email.


Over the years many individuals from churches and groups have visited IBLA.  Most often church youth groups and college work parties visit during summer and school holiday vacations. Some of the ways to get involved include:


  • Housebuilding Projects

  • Campus Remodleing and Repair Projects

  • Local Church Maintenance Days



If you would like to make arrangements for an individual or group visit, please contact us.
