The Moody Bible Institute is a Christian college founded in 1886 by evangelist Dwight L. Moody. It is based in Chicago, Illinois, but it has or has had extension campuses elsewhere in the U.S. Many missionaries were educated at the school, something it is most known for. However, by 2017, Moody's enrollment had fallen deeply, enough to force them to fire faculty and close branches in Spokane, Washington, and Pasadena, California.[1] In January 2018, its president and COO both resigned.[2] Moody's stance on biblical inerrancy also became soft, with several professors denying inerrancy.[3]
