About Word of Life Bible Institute

Our Bible Institute goes far beyond the classroom and impacts every area of your life, from a staff who will mentor you to ministry opportunities that will stretch you and prepare you for life.



Identify your purpose: Find meaning and build a firm foundation.



Enjoy Bible Survey and Theology classes from September to May, studying through the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation and studying all the major areas of Christian doctrine from our resident, missionary professors. Our unique Guest Lecturer program has different pastors, authors, missionaries, and professors each week teaching their passion. Get the full course catalog here. 


Wednesday chapels feature the campus praise team, student and staff testimonies, and a dynamic speaker. Thursday chapels feature messages from missionary guests and alumni who will challenge you to go deeper in your faith. Friday chapels are led by our deans and focus on applying God’s Word to every day life in areas such as relationships, overcoming temptation, and finding God’s Will for your life. 

Ministry Credits

Life doesn’t just happen in a classroom – hands-on ministry exposure is an integral part of WOLBI, and part of what makes WOLBI so unique. You will have opportunities to serve in different areas while receiving college credits. Discover your passion for ministry and get equipped in areas such as drama, music, counselling, and kids/teen ministry. Learn more about ministry at WOLBI. 


A close-knit campus means you can get your questions answered and interact with professors outside the classroom. Grow in your relationship with Christ together with your classmates as your get deeper into God’s Word through your classes and different campus activities. See where we are located. 


We are accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, an institutional accrediting body, so your credits will transfer to most Christian universities and colleges. We will work with you to make sure you get the best transfer agreement possible for your time at WOLBI. More about our accreditation.
