A WBS study helper is a Christian friend who is available to help you understand the Bible as you take the WBS courses. WBS study helpers are everyday people like you and me who volunteer their time to help others. Your study helper will exchange lessons with you, review your lesson answers and give you feedback, help you find Scriptures to answer your personal questions, and be available as a prayer partner.
WBS offers a core set of lesson booklets and online lessons known as the Master Series. The Bible-based lessons teach the fundamentals of God, His grace and love, Jesus, the Gospel message, the church, and Christian living. WBS courses are designed to increase your knowledge and faith in God by seeing for yourself what the Bible says.
The Bible is relevant to human kind, presenting God to man. How did we get the Bible? Is it trustworthy? Does it apply to me, today? What is the “Good News” of the Bible?
God reveals Himself and His will for you in the Bible. What does God say about Himself? Who is the Holy Spirit? How can I be “right with God”?
God’s message in the Bible is “good news”! How does God want me to respond to it? What is faith that “saves”? How can I be sure about my faith? What do I receive from God’s good news?
Jesus makes remarkable promises to those who “know” Him. How can I know Jesus? What do prophets and eye-witnesses say about Him? Is Jesus God’s Son? Why did He die? Is He alive today?
Jesus speaks of being “born again” to live a new life. What does He mean? Can I really have a fresh start in life? Why is the cross so important? How can I face death with assurance?
God has chosen a family of His very own—and He wants you to be a part of it. Who has God chosen? Me? How can I know? What does the word “church” really mean? What is His purpose for my life?
God offers every single person a new purpose and a joyful life. How does He want me to live? Can I really change? Is the Holy Spirit real-and really at work in my life? How can I help others?
No. WBS lessons are free of charge. The expenses for WBS are provided by the generous donations of Christians who care. They have a strong desire for students to increase their faith in God, and hear the Good News of the Bible.

Yes. The WBS courses are in Spanish in print by postal mail or by email. To visit the Spanish WBS site click here.
WBS is not an accredited institution and does not offer diplomas or degrees. It is a way that one can learn about the message of the Bible for themselves.
No. WBS is a “distance learning” school that uses mailed or emailed lessons, or Web-based lessons.
The Bible offers benefits and blessings to each and every person. Hope, joy, love, and life are available to all. In fact, the Bible is the only true source of life’s most important truths and blessings. Find out more by enrolling and taking the brief introduction lesson, The Way to Life. WBS courses will benefit you as you see what the Bible’s message is, increase your knowledge of God and Jesus, enrich your personal and spiritual life, and build a firm foundation for yourself based on God’s Word.
WBS courses are written for busy people. Each lesson within a course is brief and can be completed at your own pace, perhaps in about 30 minutes. In the seven courses of the WBS Master Series, there are 55 lessons. There is no time pressure for completing the lessons and you should proceed with the idea of “just one lesson at a time.” Email and Web-based lessons can, obviously, be completed much more quickly than those exchanged using postal mail around the world.
No. However, all Bible passages are included in the lessons so that access to a Bible is not necessary to complete them. A good site for online Bibles and study resources is www.biblegateway.com. After you have proven your commitment by completing a number of WBS lessons, some study helpers help their students acquire a Bible of their own.
