What is Bible for Life?

Students in class

Bible For Life is a YWAM Bible school that wants to equip a new wave of missionaries in the Word of God. In three months you will discover the grand Story of the Bible – the story of God who saves, restores and re-establishes his Kingdom.
You will learn how to read and study the Bible in a responsible and practical way using the inductive Bible study approach. And you will read the Bible devotionally and be equipped to share the Word.

Explore the Word

Student studying his Bible

The books of the Bible are written in different forms and styles, such as narrative, poetry, law, prophecy, and letters. We will explore each of these forms and study at least one book within those genres in depth. Through practice and evaluation with your personal coach you will grow and receive tools for a lifetime of study. After three months you will be equipped to explain and share the Bible with much greater confidence.

Bible For Life is fully part of the missional YWAM Heidebeek community. You will join the rhythms of worship, intercession for the nations and celebration. We have places to play games, outdoor sports facilities and our property borders the forest. We will share life together which is a great opportunity to grow deep friendships.

      I never read the Bible by myself, let alone studying it. Now I finally feel comfortable studying the Bible, and even more important: I love doing it!

      Recently I get more opportunities to preach. During the preparations, I really see the fruit of the Bible For Life. Understanding that I should look at the context and place it in the big storyline. I realize what a treasure I have received in the BFL.

      To read and study the Bible is one thing, but to experience the story is something beautiful. Feel God’s story on your heart, become part of it and live it [out].
