Start your own church based Bible school


Good day everyone.
I am very honored to be chosen to share about my experience regarding International Bible Institute (IBI). I first heard about IBI way back 2009 and I was interested in taking classes because I wanted to know more about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. However, I guess the time was not yet right. It took 6 years before I was finally able to enroll in my first course which happened to be the Great Doctrines of the Christian Faith 301-1.
Another compelling reason for me to take the GD 301-1 is because it has always been a challenge for me to answer those who ask me why we should believe the writings in the Great Book which is the Bible. For even if I know that the teachings of the Bible are profound, I am always at a loss for words how to make others understand what is in my heart and thoughts. And it is by providence that Lecture 1 was about “Why we believe the Bible?” Through Tita Issa Cusi, I have learned the fundamentals that the Bible has 66 books written in 3 different languages by 40 different authors over a span of approximately 1500 years. These facts alone make the Bible one of a kind! However, what is more remarkable is that it maintains perfect consistency or without conflict all throughout. That just shows that all the different authors have been guided by the grace of God to come up with this amazing book which teaches the Word of God and remains relevant through generations.
A month after I enrolled in IBI, I experienced a trial in my life. Looking back, I can say that I was in critical condition because my platelet count (the component of the blood that causes clotting) was really low and I was put on bed rest because I might bleed anytime. I will be lying if I said that I was not afraid. It is only when I turned to the Word of God that I felt myself getting stronger, overpowering the disease that I had in my body. While I was confined to my bed, I kept reading the Bible so fear and weakness will not creep in my thoughts. What gave me even greater strength was the support I received not only by my family and friends but also by my brothers and sisters in our Church. I was specifically touched by the visit of Pastor Mel and his family because through my conversation with them I have been enlightened more that my decision to enroll in IBI was correct. Through God’s grace, I was able to hurdle through my illness. And I was able to complete GD 301-1. And because of what I have learned and experienced, I was encouraged to continue my learning journey.
Currently I am taking up the Life of Christ under Pastor Gary Jayme. And next on my list is Old Testament (OT) 106. Through these classes I am slowly gaining the knowledge I have been hungering for. Praise the Lord for IBI. To God be all the glory, honor and praise.
