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.


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.

OUTREACH -- (optional)

There is only one truth that sets the world free, Jesus Christ. Our desire for studying the Bible is to know that truth with all of our heart, mind, and soul; so that we can bring God’s truth to the nations.

After spending nine months being renewed by the living Word of God, students will have the opportunity to go on a three month outreach. It will be a time of bringing Bible training, teaching, and discipleship to nations that have little to no access to biblical training or resources.

We believe the Bible is the book that transforms nations!

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.
