Reaching Your Goals
Russell Haffner

The apostle Paul said, "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ" (1 Corinthians 11:1). Paul demonstrated a wonderful example of zeal and faithfulness. He showed a love for God and love for God's word. He was a man fully committed to obeying the scriptures. So it is not surprising that Paul was a diligent student of God's word (2 Timothy 2:15; 4:13). Paul’s example of dedication and fidelity to the truth should serve as a goal for each of us.

There are various reasons students enroll in the school. Some say they want to be a faithful preacher while others have a desire to be a well-equipped Bible class teacher. However, for most of the students the goal is simply to have a better understanding of God's word. The school is committed to helping our students reach this goal. We provide the best Bible instruction and academic resources to help the students truly know the scriptures. There is no way to overestimate the importance of an in-depth, comprehensive study of the Bible. Thank you for your desire to follow Paul's example of diligence as you study to gain an understanding of the scriptures. May God bless you as you seek to learn more about Him and His word.


While the WVBS Online Bible School is not accredited by any government agency, we are authorized under Texas State Law to grant degrees within the fields of theology, religion, ministry, biblical studies, etc. Thus, our courses and curriculum supply the required education needed for a degree in Biblical Studies.

The level of work required by the WVBS Online Bible School is equal to and even superior to many accredited religious universities and colleges. Any graduate of the school will be fully qualified to teach the Bible.

"I have a college education in religion and a Bachelor of Science degree from Athens State University in Athens, Alabama. I want you to know that the teaching equals or exceeds any college I have had before. God bless the WVBS Online Bible School." - Formal Student (Alabama, USA)

We have not sought secular accreditation or approval to do what God commands us to do in teaching and training souls to obey and serve Christ. We have no quarrel with schools that choose to be accredited by the government and outside agencies. However, our aim is to be a work for, and on behalf of God; thus, only in need of His approval. Therefore, we seek to be accredited by His word, which should please any who are involved in biblical education.
