Will I receive a certificate after I complete a IBS course?

What is the mission statement of IBS?
The mission of IBS is to educate and equip people who are seeking a better understanding of God and His will for their lives through study of the Scriptures. We are here to serve you in your quest for more knowledge of the Word of God and a deeper faith in His promises. We desire to assist you in developing a more intimate relationship with Him each day.

Is IBS flexible enough to fit my busy schedule?
Yes. IBS offers you the option and flexibility of studying when and where you want. Our desire is to be accommodating but also to encourage you in your spiritual walk. The IBS teacher may contact you on occasion with a note of encouragement and a reminder that he or she is here to assist you.

How long do I have to complete an IBS Course?
Some IBS students finish several lessons in a single day. Others only complete one lesson per week. You may want to have a goal of reading and studying one lesson each day. This will help you develop a regular daily Bible study habit.and encourage you to set aside time to focus on your spiritual needs and development. Waiting more than a few days between study times puts you at risk of forgetting the material presented in the previous lesson. Secondly, this allows you time think and pray about the Scriptures that you read. It will allow you time to meditate on how the truths presented in the lesson should effect your life. Remember that Christianity is about a daily relationship with Jesus.

What does it cost to enroll in IBS?
All IBS lessons are free of charge to all students. There are no hidden costs or fees. NO donations are requested or solicited at any time.

What if I want to make a donation to IBS? Can I?
Yes. IBS thankfully accepts donations. See the Contact Us page for information on making a donation.

Who are the IBS teachers?

May I ask questions about the Bible?
Yes. IBS teachers encourage you to ask questions about the Bible and spiritual matters and we pledge to help you find the answers to those questions from the Scriptures.

Are the IBS lessons available in print? How much do they cost?

What is the IBS doctrinal statement?
The teachers and administrative workers of IBS believe that the Bible is from God and should be our only source of religious instruction. We have no creed, but Christ. We have no "doctrinal statement of faith,"except the New Testament. The message of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, points us to faith, love and grace from God through His Son, Jesus. We believe that salvation is found in no other name but Jesus and by following His teachings, those of His apostles and the other writers of the New Testament, you can be part of God's family.
