Discover the driving passion behind how and why we do ministry at the Bible Institute
OUR MINISTRY PHILOSOPHY
Completing the education process at Word of Life Bible Institute are the ministry opportunities which combine the students’ knowledge of Scripture and their own personal Christian life to influence the lives of others.
Through various means, we provide opportunities for students to work out their faith as Christ would have them to do. Just as evangelism was very close to the heart of Jesus, it is very much an important part of the ministry of Word of Life. The students are not just taught principles of God’s Word, but they also learn how to apply these principles in everyday life through specific ministries.
Every first year student will learn from a classroom setting how to personally share their faith one on one. We provide a 10 hour accredited course on how to take everyday conversations and direct them towards spiritual issues, ultimately culminating in the sharing of the Gospel. Each student will then be given opportunities to make it practical as we take them to heavily populated areas for open air evangelism, send them to youth activities/retreats and provide opportunities to serve and interact through community outreach.
Since we consider our sophomore program to be a deeper foundation for ministry, we provide more opportunities for students to develop and strengthen their God given gifts and abilities. From crisis pregnancy center outreach, senior citizen home outreach, and weekly local church involvement, to ministries that students create themselves, we believe that students are provided with a wide range of opportunities that will best prepare them for future service.
DEVELOP MINISTRY SKILLS
Life is Ministry! At the Bible Institute one of our primary goals is to develop your ministry skills. We don’t want you to just learn Bible truth we want you to learn how to use God’s truth in real ministry.
SHARING YOUR FAITH
At the Bible Institute, everyone goes through evangelism training in order to learn how to share the Gospel with clarity, learn effective methods and develop an lifestyle of sharing their Faith. You’ll get the confidence to share your faith any time, any place to be ready to “give an answer” for what you believe.
Work side by side with other students who share your passion for ministering to others. Learn together in class the principles that make up ministry theory, then go out and work together to practice what you have learned from God’s Word. You’ll learn first-hand how to function in a ministry team.
