School of Biblical Studies

What is a school of Biblical Studies?

Someone once said “The School of Biblical Studies (SBS) could really be called the School of the Holy Spirit”.


Far from being a mere academic exercise, it really is a life changing journey of discovery in the Word of God, encountering His power and love while digging deeper into scripture.


During the course there will be lectures by Staff and visiting teachers, but most of your time is spent in personal study of the Bible using the new skills taught that will last you a lifetime.


66 books ….. 9 months ….. a resource that serves…. for the rest of your life…. Just do it!

Integrate the Word of God and the Spirit of God into all parts of your life, ministry, and calling
