On October 1, 1926, Miss Alice E. Luce, a former Anglican missionary, joined with Ralph and Richard Williams and founded Latin American Bible Institute in San Diego, California, in conjunction with (then) Glad Tidings Bible Institute. Experiencing a time of growth, the institute moved in 1935 from San Diego to nearby La Mesa, California, and then again in 1941 to Los Angeles. In 1950 the institute moved to its current location in La Puente.
