From the Principal – Ian Christensen

As we are set to commence another year of Bible training courses, I am wonderfully full of thanksgiving as I see God fulfilling the vision He has given. From the time the Lord spoke to me to ‘teach and train’ back in the eighties until now, we have seen hundreds of students study and graduate from NLBS. Since 1991, the school has attracted students from several walks of life and denominational affiliations.

New Life Bible School is not only a place of teaching but also one where Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers impart life, often demonstrating the gifts and anointing’s of God to the students.  As NLBS enters another year, I strongly recommend the courses to you. We have an experienced team of lectures, including several ministers from Britain and, at times, visiting international ministers.

I know that God has raised up NLBS to play its particular part in teaching and training and releasing labourers into the final harvest field before the return of Jesus.

About the Courses

At NLBS we offer a well-rounded and balanced diet of teaching, including doctrinal and practical studies, with a special emphasis on the subjects of Prayer, Fasting, Faith, Spiritual Warfare, Right Relationships, Worship Praise and Healing.

The School will award part time or full time Certificates or Diplomas to those who satisfactorily complete the course. We firmly believe in the ministry of the local church and Christians are trained to return and give increased support to their local church. All students must belong to a local church and should return and labour to see the church of Jesus Christ built up.

Our lecturers include: Peter Game, Rick Johnston, Frank Goveia, Ian Christensen, David Lamb, Veyne Austin, Charles Daniels, Jonathan Newell, Kevin Swadling, Edward Maliki, Doug Williams, Jim Master, Tony Horswood, Yinka Oyekan Bishop Joel Thomas and Others.

Past visiting international speakers (who come when available) have included: Dr Paul Pillai (India), Vernon Falls (USA), Ezekiel Francis (India) Jean Danall (USA), Mark du Pont (Canada), Dr. Bill Kaiser (USA), George Adgboye (Nigeria), Bill Davis (USA) and others.


A word from the students

THEO SNOWDON – School Teacher

I’ve attended Bible School for two terms and I write to encourage you to consider coming yourself. What I like about the school is that it is designed to be practical: the provision (lesson content) is geared to build up your faith and understanding, so that you can become a more positive contributor to your church. Like the good news itself, the course is for anyone. The work you have to do is achievable and not a burden to those who have busy lives.


SIMON JEAN-MARIE – Pastor at Destiny House Int

Many times, as Jesus and the Disciples travelled by boat across the waters, He taught them great truths. For me Bible School was like this: the sea of life continues to billow as we’re brought to maturity in our faith – in both knowledge and it’s application. But the excitement of stepping out onto the water like Peter and experiencing the miraculous becomes more and more a reality as profound truths are laid plain for all to grasp.



“Why am I doing this?” I must have asked myself this question a thousand times during my two years at New Life Bible School. Because of my job, I could only attend Bible School in the evenings and did so two evenings week, not including study time. There were times I wanted to quit but by God’s grace, I ran the race. So why did I do it? The answer is that I wanted to know more about God and His Character. And through it God has improved and reshaped my character. Thank you Lord and thank you New Life Bible School!

Atmosphere and conduct at NLBS

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Eph 4:1-3

Our Aim

To promote an atmosphere that will encourage love, acceptance and the application of biblical principles to personal and corporate lifestyles. A student’s application for admission to NLBS is interpreted as an indication of their acceptance of the school’s goals and objectives. We therefore reserve the right to request the withdrawal of any students who demonstrate themselves to be in conflict with spirit of NLBS.
