Who We Are





The very first Word of Life Bible Institute began in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but the idea wasn’t replicated in the United States until years later. That’s when the New York campus was born. Today, there are Bible Institutes all across the world, training up young men and women to be the next world changers!


Our faith is so important to us—without it, the Bible Institute would not exist and our work and very lives would be meaningless. While students are not required to agree with the entirety of the WOLBI theology, it is important to note that all of our teaching and ministry stems from those beliefs. We do, however, require students to agree with our Statement of Faith.


The community aspect of our Bible Institutes is one of the most valuable parts of our campuses; it provides students with a safe and healthy place to explore and grow their faith. That’s why we live by a Standard of Conduct. Each day this standard serves to protect our community as we honor the Lord with our lives.
