Articles Of Faith

The Bread Of Life International Bible Correspondence Institute

We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God--without error.

We believe in the one Triune God--God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten, virgin-born Son of God, that He lived a sinless life, died and rose from the dead on the third day after His death on the cross.

We believe in the Holy Spirit and that He indwells the life of every believer.

We believe that the Holy Spirit, with the Word of God, convicts lost men of their sin and convinces them of their lost and condemned condition.

We believe that all men are lost without Jesus Christ and cannot be saved apart from Jesus Christ.

We believe salvation to be all of grace and none of works.

We believe people are saved by being "born again" into the Kingdom of God, thus by repentance of sin and faith toward God.

We believe in the eternal security of the believer in Christ.

We believe in the existence of Satan--the Devil--and that he is our enemy, but his end is the lake of fire.

We believe in the personal, visible, return of our Lord Jesus Christ to this earth.

We believe in the eternal punishment of the wicked in a burning Hell and the eternal bliss, happiness and joy of the saints in a real place the Bible calls Heaven.

We believe that Christians should live a separated life from the world.

We oppose modernism and liberalism. We do not belong to the National Council of Churches.

We believe in the local church. We believe in the independence of the local church.

We believe the ordinances given to the local church are two--baptism and the Lord's Supper--that baptism is by immersion of believers and that the Lord's Supper is a memorial to His shed blood and broken body, showing forth His death until He comes.

Student Testimonies

Below are letters from a few of my students. Their names and address have been omitted for their privacy and protection. Many of our brothers and sisters in Christ suffer great persecution for their commitment to Jesus. I have hundreds and hundreds of letters from persecuted believers asking for prayer and help, as they continue spreading the Gospel, even at the risk of their very lives.


 Dear Dr. Woodard D-D


 My heart is filled with gratitude, I am truly overwhelmed. I can’t believe I actually did a Bible Correspondence Course. I did the best I can. I always wanted to do this, but finances would not allow me. I must say, God’s richest continued blessings to you and yours. I must confess also, when I realized I had finished, tears came to my eyes, tears of joy and satisfaction. From the depths of my heart, God bless you.


Yours in Christ:
Trinidad, West Indies

You have made me a better person.

Dear brother in the Lord:

 Greetings in the love of Jesus Christ, the founder and maker of love. He first loved us and gave His life for us and make us to copy from Him. Thank God for His love, kindness and compassion toward the world.

 Happiness behind sorrow.

 Happiness comes when we started your lessons, the way you present your good presentation of the gospel made us move into remote pagan villages, where they believe in their father’s idols of wooden gods. We went to idol god worshippers’ villages, just to present to them the good news of Jesus Christ and free salvation that He gave to all who believe in Him, who do not need goats and hen’s killing anymore. God, in the free pardon of sin, has purchased them by the blood of Jesus Christ. If anyone accepts Christ Jesus as his or her personal Saviour, they are free from sin.

Hearing this, many accepted Jesus Christ by lifting their hands and we gave them an invitation to come out. We told them that they will not worship idols anymore and they will not kill any goats and hens anymore for their idol gods. That is when riots started; some of us were beaten to death because we wanted to destroy their father’s false god. Please pray for us, we are ready to go back to the villages when we are well. Please pray for us and the villages, to help us win them for Christ Jesus.

 We are using your teaching to prove to the villagers that God is still in action. Please, we like your teaching, is your church teaching the same also? How many students do you have in Nigeria? We want to follow your teaching, it is easy to understand. No church here will accept this pure truth teaching. When hearing from you, we will write more. Thanks for your good teaching. Thanks for love and kindness. Please be with us to spread your teachings.


Yours in Christ:


 We accept to die for Christ sake, for His true teaching, that has not mixed the name of God with idol gods. We are to point out to them truth about God and the gods of wood. We want them to know that God Almighty is the maker of the earth and all things that are on the earth. We did not have the right teaching to lay our hands on. But now, your teaching shows us the right teaching. Please, please, be with us. Let the light shine in darkness.

Dear Brethern:

 I sincerely thank you for the thoughtfulness and diligent kindness in sending me the materials I got from your prestigious Biblical Institute. No words can express my deepest gratitude to you for the assistance you've been giving me by sending the two books of God's word. Whenever I read the books, I feel a fresh fire or zeal and committment to follow Jesus, to love Him and to love all mankind. Your books which you sent me stand for the big part of my Spiritual growth and maturity. It has been a blessing to me and now I thirst and hunger, yearn for it like physical food because it is infinitely nourishing.

 I praise the Lord for your ministry of Jesus Christ. I don't want to be obiedient in a religious way as the Pharisees were, but I want to be obedient from my heart with love. Keep pressing in, keep spreading the word, keep walking in love and I will keep you before the throne of grace. I'm thankful to everyone of you in nuturing my soul. Christ gives me a continuing life of service and strengthens me to stand firm in bad situations. Please pray for me because I am jobless, I need your prayers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          My offering for what you are doing in my sincere prayers is that God will supply your needs. I believe that soon I'll be able to do more than this. May our Heavenly Father bless you in grace and your worldwide ministry abundantly. In anticapation of an early reply, I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.




 Dear Dr. Johnny Woodard:

 A warm “hello” to you my brother in Christ.

 I am 15 years old. I was born last December 29, 1992. I’m the second oldest child in our family. I’m very thankful to God because I have been given the opportunity to be a student through your correspondence school. If you only knew the great change that has happened in my life. Bible reading becomes our hobby. I and my younger brothers and sisters became knowledgeable in God’s word. Reading the great Bible question and answer book from the Old and New Testaments woke an interest. Praying every day is part of our daily life. I’m sorry if I mail this test back to you delayed. It’s just because I don’t have enough money to pay on the delivery of my letters to the post office. I need to look for a job here to pay the delivery bill given by the postman. Most of our fellowmen are suffering poverty that even buying our needs, like clothing, slippers and rice, we can’t afford to buy any more. I hope you understand our situation.
          I include my picture so that I may have a picture on your photo album. I’m looking forward to the Advanced Course 2 (The New Testament Church), so that I can finish all the course and receive my diploma immediately. I’ll close this letter here. Hope to hear from you soon.




 Dr. Woodard,


Praise GOD!!!


          We have received the lessons you sent us and have been blessed in our daily devotions and study. As we were reading them, some of our fellow believers have expressed interest in studying as well. Would you allow us to photocopy the material you have sent us?


Your fellow servant,
The Philippines



Greetings in the Name of our Saviour Jesus Christ!

 I am happy to inform you that I already finished the Advance course study you've sent last year. Really it's a blessing for me to have the opportunity to study and be a part of your Bible Correspondence Course. I already sent my answer sheets last week, and I am sorry for I haven't sent them earlier.

 Thank you so much for helping me study the Word of God in a deeper sense. Somehow it answers the many questions I have in life. I would like also to inquire if I can take your Basic Bible Course as well? I am looking forward to hearing from you very soon.

 Again, thank you so much and may God continue to bless you and your ministry richly. I will be praying that the Lord will continue to sustain and use your Bible Correspondence Course in helping many Christians to have a better understanding in the Word of God and God Himself and in reaching out many people who still don't know Christ in their lives. Your booklets are great and I find it very helpful.


Yours in Christ,
The Philippines



The Lord Bless:

 I am so much happy to info you that the diploma you sent is at good hand , may the good Lord meet all your needs. I am so much thankful to the Lord for making it possible for me to go through this course, praise be to His name . Stay blessed in Jesus name,


Love from:

 Dear Johnny

 I wish to thank the Lord for making it possible for us to go throuigh this Bible Correspondence Institute by the help of the good Lord with success. In fact, this lesson have given me a great eye opener into the word of God. Also I have learned new things in this lesson which will help me in my mission work and church planting.

 In fact, I have just started a new church in one of the new communities in Tema. So far I have (6) six disciples, so I hope to start Sunday services in the first Sunday of February 2008, so keep us in your prayers.

 Please, I have given your email address to a pastor friend in Liberia to write to you for the lessons. I hope you like it.

 I am so sorry for the delay in sending in the last lesson for I went on a long mission trip and am now back to start an new church.

 May the good Lord bless all that you are doing and meet all your needs. The soul-winning lesson was great. It is helping us train people to win souls for the Lord.

Dearest in the Lord,




I continually praise the Name of the Lord for the tremendous work He has been doing through your Institute to equip the children of God with the Word of God and to spread the Gospel of Salvation throughout the world. May He continue to bless and strengthen you so that the Word can reach the more remote and unreachable places of the earth. Amen !

 In fact, one month ago, I received some manuals (Advanced Courses 1-7) from your Institute as a student and I can affirm that these courses have been a blessing for me and the church I have the honour to pastor. This is to inform you that I have now completed all the courses and I will mail them to you tomorrow. And I will be expecting my diploma. Sorry for not having sent you the tests earlier. It was due to the fact that my schedule was very tied…

 Furthermore, the main purpose for writing you this note is to enquire on:

 The possibility for us here to get French translation of your manuals because we are in a French speaking country and our people hardly speak English. In case this option is not possible, can we be granted the opportunity and privilege to get it translated into French for having a wider attendance (people enrolling as students). ·

 I would also like to know whether you are not interested in Creating a Regional Branch of The Bread of Life International Bible Correspondence Institute for French speaking people here in Côte d’Ivoire (West Africa) so that as many students as possible can profit from the so precious lessons contained in your various manuals ( both Ordinary and Advanced Levels)

 I will be looking forward to hearing from you very soon.
Côte d’Ivoire , West Africa.

 I wish to thank you for your usual co-operation in the Lord. God bless you and continue to strengthen you for all you do to spread the Gospel everywhere.


 Dear Dr. Woodard,


Heavenly greetings in the name of the Lord. I trust that all is well with you. I received the Course materials on Friday and am writing to say big thank you. I've finished reading thru the WITNESSING and I even quoted portions in my Sunday sermon at church. What a great support.. Today, I started studying and answering the questions on SALVATION. In our part of the world, we don't get such materials easily and even the cost involved is so much that some of us can’t easily buy.. This is really SOLID MEAT. For example the portion about the trinity is so simple and that I can now conveniently preach it to the understanding of any person.

 Thank you.

 I wish to assure you and the brethren who support your ministry that they should continue to do it because only God knows the impact this material has on humanity ... including pastors and their congregations.
Doc, I have THREE leaders in my church who are true disciples and I would like to get copies for them and I will help them to study. Again below are address of some of my pastor friends who are also interested:


Nigeria, West Africa




 I have just received the diploma you awarded me. I just wanted to say thank you and may God bless you. Maybe you would like to hear a little how I studied and completed your studies, glory to God. Let's see, I studied way way way(not a typo) into the night in some cases. I took them everywhere with me, and whenever I had the time I would sit down, ask God for guidence and begin. this included times when I would stay over night at church. I would get up early in the morning, I Even took them to summer church camp with me, hard to see a brother in the woods, studying to the glory of the Lord! I was deeply enriched by the study, I especially loved the study on the New Testament church. I pray God will be merciful enough to use me in any thing He sees fit, and I am glad I had the chance to gain valuable tools for His ultimate victory!
To Him be the glory and the power forever AMEN!


God Bless your ministries until the rapture!

Be bold, trust God.


 Appreciation goes to The Bread Of Life International Bible Correspondence Institute for offering me this course and I pray God bless you abundantly.
I will not remain the same in witnessing Christ to the nation and this people around me.

 Greetings in the name of our LORD and Savior JESUS,


I have a 10 year old daughter. I want her to received your advance course one-salvation. She is attending Sunday school since two yrs old. and been active in music ministry, playing tambourine. But I noticed that as she grows her interests changes, I just want her to know GOD by heart and be equipped . I notice that she is interested in receiving mails, that’s why I find it is a good start for her to study GODS WORD through mail, by the way I have been saved through this ministry, back in my high school years somebody enrolled me here and I learn more of God’s word through this ministry.

 Thank you and God Bless YOU and Your ministry.


 Dear Brother in Christ. I have received your bible correspondence course. I like so much the course. And I have learned many new words about God. If it is in our Telugu Language so many people want to do this course. So many people can know about the word of God through this way. If you agree, I want to translate and co-ordinate your course in India. India

 Dear Dr. Woodard,

 I have completed the course sent to me. I am finding a possible way to send the answers to you. Our postal system is very slow and undependable. Indeed, I am blessed because your course has brought a great light and relief to most of my many doubts in the Bible. In the future I would like to suggest if you could appoint me in Liberia to oversee some of the students that would be willing to take this worthy course. Instead of posting to them individuals it can be posted to me and I will distribute them and after they complete they can bring them back to me for postage. It will real be revival in my country if even 10% of our pastors in the country gone through this course.

 May the Lord richly bless you and all those whom are making it possible for such a rich lessons from the Word of God to reach to us in Africa.


Your student in the Lord,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Dear Dr. Johnny:

I am so glad to write after having received the course on the 9th of November . It really shows that I and my wife will benefit a lot . We will study them prayerfully and carefully so as to grow in the Faith . About the picture , I will send to you anytime .
