WORD OF TRUTH BIBLE INSTITUTE Founded in 1998, we are a non-traditional institution of higher learning. Although successful completion of degrees will be recognized by our fellowship, we cannot guarantee that our credits and/or degrees will be honored by otherinstitutions. We are not motivated to meet secular standards. We exist solely for the purpose of bringing glory to God by equipping Christian students to perform Christian ministry (2 Timothy 2:15). Regardless of the title or degree one may be awarded during this lifetime, the greatest honor that we can ever hope to receive is to hear King Jesus say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord” (Matthew 25:21). Therefore, we receive ourendorsement, not from a human board, but by teaching the “whole counsel of God” (Acts 20:26-27). We base our curriculum upon three biblical truths. (1) The Apostle Paul taught that it is possible to have zeal for God, but not according to knowledge (Romans 10:1-3), (2) Although salvation is solely by the grace of God, the Apostle James taught that faith in the Lord Jesus will manifest itself in works (James 2:18), and (3) The Lord Jesus commanded that we go into the world proclaiming the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore, our mission is for the student to (1) learn biblical truth, (2) be active in Christian ministry, and (3) beobedient to the Great Commission. We will grant up to 60 hours for lifetime ministry and evangelism. We alsoaccept transfer credits from other, higher institutions of learning.
