I am happy to be providing this opportunity to further your Biblical education and preparation for ministry. It brings joy to my heart to know that you are interested in dedicating a period of time in your life to training for God’s purpose. We know that it is His plan that the body of Christ be equipped for the work of ministry and that is exactly what Life Bible College is about. Whether you have a call to a five-fold ministry of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor or Teacher or if you just have a desire to get more training to serve in the local church, I am confident that you will receive the necessary tools to make you fruitful in every good work.

Many have had the call and desire to attend a Bible college, yet were hindered because of time, money, circumstances and/or distance. Now we are able to bring the necessary training of the Word and practical application with collegiate excellence. The degree in which we allow the Word of God to be a working part in our lives will determine the degree of success and effectiveness we will have personally in the Kingdom of God.

As you press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, we will all be working together to reach a lost and dying world by effectively bringing the life of God to the lives of people.

Pastor Mark Boer

Statement of Faith

THE SCRIPTURES – The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in theNew Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)

THE GODHEAD – Our God is one, but manifested in three Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, being coequal (Deut. 6:4;Phil. 2:6). God the Father is greater than all; the Sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 14:16;John 15:26).

MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION – Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. The Bible says “…all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,” and “…There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Rom. 3:10; 3:23). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Rom. 5:14; 1 John 3:8). Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Ephesians 2:8-10).

ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH – Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works repentance. The new birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10; John 3:3-5; 1 John 5:12).

WATER BAPTISM – Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39).

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST – The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:1-4).

SANCTIFICATION – The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return (Heb. 12:14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12-14; 1 Cor. 1:30).

DIVINE HEALING – Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith, and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of every member of the Church today (James 5:14,15; Mark 16:18; Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24).

RESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR LORD – The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, “…this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” His coming is imminent. When He comes, “…the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air…” (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:16,17). Following the Tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign a thousand years (Rev. 5:10;20:6).

HELL AND ETERNAL RETRIBUTION – The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the lake of fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The lake of fire is literal. The terms “eternal” and “everlasting,” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the lake of fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the Presence of God (Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19:20)

 

FAQ

1. Is Life Bible College Accredited?

No, not at this time. Our goal is to provide schooling and training for people that are unable to attend school full time. By having classes Tuesday - Thursday night, students are able to keep their full time jobs. If we become accredited the requirements of our hours of operation and classes offered would need to change. (FYI - Harvard is not accredited either.)

Becoming accredited is however something that we are prayerfully considering for the future.

2. If we pay the tuition up front but find out that we are unable to attend later, will we get a refund? How much?

Students who withdraw may be granted a tuition refund as follows:
Second week of term: 100% refund of tuition paid
Third week of term: 50% refund of tuition paid
Fourth week of term: 25% refund of tuition paid
After the fourth week of the term, no refund will be granted — 0% refund of tuition paid
Books must be returned in perfect condition or no refund will be granted to you.

3. Are there scholarships available?

Currently we do not have any scholarships to offer to LBC students. However, we do accept donations from those that wish to give towards the tuition costs of students that may need the assistance.
