The World Bible School (WBS) is headquartered in Cedar Park, Texas, north of Austin. WBS has a number of Bible lessons that it offers free of charge to anyone wanting to study them. WBS advertises its basic lesson, ‘The Way to Life’ for people to study by postal correspondence or online. When a prospective student signs up for the introductory lesson, his/her name is made available to study helpers. Study helpers are mature Christians willing to teach and chosen to help by the WBS staff. The pairing is done by WBS but the actual study is done by the volunteer student and the checking of the student’s work is done by the study helper. Certificates of Achievement are issued by the study helpers to students who have completed lessons. WBS provides New Testaments and study Bibles to students who have requested them and have shown themselves to be qualified students. WBS has over one million new applicants a year.
