Word of Life Philippines Bible Institute

 

 

School of Biblical Studies (SBS)

OBJECTIVES

The purpose of the WOLBI first year program is to provide students with a thorough foundation in the Word of God, and then encourage personal application of their training while equipping students to use it in leading others to Christ.

KNOW (Academic)

GENESIS to REVELATION: A survey course covering every book of the Bible is taught by a resident faculty or guest lecturer.  This course gives the chronological overview, puts each book in perspective, teaches lessons for everyday living, and gives a solid foundation for future study.

THEOLOGY: Every major Christian doctrine is carefully and systematically analyzed supported from Scripture. Erroneous views are discussed with the Biblical reasons for their rejection.

BIBLE EXPOSITION: Selected Old Testament and most New Testament books are expounded by some of the finest international teachers and speakers available. The unique program exposes the student to an in-depth study of the Old and New Testament. These courses are normally taught in one or two week modules by adjunct faculty.

CHRISTIAN LIFE and MINISTRY: Courses are also offered in Bible related topics which serve to prepare the student more fully for future ministry opportunities.

GROW (Spiritual)

DORM DEVOTIONS / QUIET TIME: Personal and group devotions are key to growth and maturity in Christ. Dorm groups gather each evening for a time of sharing and prayer. Each morning a time is set aside for personal Quiet Time. This discipline of daily time with the Lord is often one of the most treasured and valuable things the student takes with him when he graduates from the Bible Institute. Each student is also discipled during the school year by a WOL staff member.

CHAPEL: Evening chapel services provide inspiration, challenges, and instruction. Series on Christian living, missionary challenges, and ministry opportunities are all available through the daily chapels.

SHOW (Outreach)

WEEKEND MINISTRY: Involvement in the local church is essential to the well-developed Christian. Students at the institute become involved in helping local churches on weekends throughout the year. Students are also taught how to minister through open-air evangelism, drama, puppets, sports and music teams.

WEEKEND RETREATS and SUMMER CAMP: The students gain counseling and camping experience at various weekend retreats during the year. The climax of the school year is Eternity Week. During this week (usually in February) the entire BI staff and student body travels to a selected area of the Philippines for an intense week of evangelism and discipleship. April and May are spent in on-the-job training and practical experience through counseling and supervising at Word of Life Camp. During the college, high school, sports, inner city, and open camps the BI students learn how to minister to needs, present the clear message of salvation, and experience the thrill of guiding new believers into a closer walk with the Lord.
