Our Vision


Be immersed in and transformed by the Word of God for nine months. Get a systematic study of each of the sixty-six books of the Bible. Be a Christian with a fairly in depth overview of the whole Bible. It helps any ministry that seeks to fulfill the Great Commission of discipling the nations.

OUR FOCUS


Take away a balanced view of the Scriptures as a whole and get exposed to the richness of the Word. The School of Biblical Studies teaches the Inductive Approach to Bible study, which gives you tools to continue a lifetime of Bible study. We study all sixty-six books of the Bible during the nine-month school. This enables a panoramic view of the entire Bible in context.

Jesse Wilson


     My story is simple, yet nothing short of a miracle. Most of my life I was walking that wide and easy path- the one that leads to death. I sat under the council of fools, relishing in my destruction; I twisted and corrupted the beautiful image that was meant to reflect God. Even though I rebelled against my Maker, His love was far too great. In my darkness I met a great light; I went from being blind to given new sight. You see, for while I was a sinner, my wonderful God died for me.

     After 5 years of being with SBS I’ve learned something important: we have a holy God! The more I study the Bible, the more I am in awe of our glorious and magnificent God- blown away that a God so holy would choose to dwell within a broken vessel like me. I’m nothing special and I’ve done nothing great, but the God that dwells within me is someone I’d love you to meet.
