Word of Life Bible Institute is a strict Fundie School system operating three different campuses (Hudson, Florida, Pottersville, New York, as well as one in Canada). Like many Fundie Schools, they believe in Young Earth Creationism.


Chapel/Spiritual Life

  • Chapel services are held three times a week (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday). Student attendance is required.
  • Students are also required to take notes during chapel
  • Sunday church attendance is required.
  • Dorm devotions are required events that take place nightly Monday thru Thursday.
  • "Quiet Time" is set daily on campus.
    • "Quiet Time" diaries must be filled out by each student and are checked by Residential Assistants periodically.
  • Mandatory conferences are held throughout the year.


  • Before viewing any movie, listening to any music, or playing any video game, students must attend a seminar that most likely goes over the "dangers" of movie watching.
  • Any movie, song, or video game must be approved by the Dean.
  • The campus Wi-Fi features a "firewall" which blocks all many forms of content.

Dating and Marriages

  • All marriage plans must be approved by the Student Life Department before the start of the semester.
  • Any divorced or separated student will not be allowed to date while attending Word of Life.

Fire Drills

Word of Life Bible Institute's fire drill policies are very questionable and even come across as racist and sexist.

  • Any woman not from North or South America must assemble at the Field House.
  • The two bullet points above also apply for ACTUAL FIRES.
  • If fires or fire drills happen during class time, different students go to different locations based on status as well.
    • Freshmen and 1st-year-students go to the J.W.C. Parking Lot
    • All others go to the Council Hall Parking Lot.
