Sozo Bible Insititute

About the former Bible Institute

Chaplain Ann M. Wolf is a graduate of two Bible Colleges, one being the former Sozo Bible Institute. So inspired by the Lessons from SBI, she now shares them with her visitors here at Message of the Lighthouse Online Library, having gained permission to use the writings, “as the Spirit leads in her ministry” from the writer, Rev. G. E. Newmyer, prior to his passing.

The Sozo Bible Institute was founded by Rev. G. E. Newmyer as an online spiritual education site with the mission of providing quality Bible Study content as well as leadership training to people around the world, regardless of their ability to pay tuition fees; and thus the College was funded by free will love-offerings and donations, a very faith-directed and rare practice indeed. In the process, Rev. Newmyer taught the Biblical Principle of “the receiving of tithes and offerings,” as they apply New Testament Ministers based on, “Freely ye have received, freely give.” Matthew 10:8 (KJV). He encouraged understanding of this teaching rather than the “charging of specific fees,” “mandatory percentages,” or what he would refer to as the unfortunate practice of “selling the dove.” All content at Message of the Lighthouse Online Library, whether the Sozo Bible Institute Lessons or her Course “Becoming the Church” (BTC)” is offered on a love-offering (& at times, cost + offering) basis in keeping with the tradition of SBI. Read terms of use.

The Sozo Bible Institute Studies include both topical lessons in short form (Sozo Short Studies) as well as comprehensive such as with the multi-purpose, expository resource, “Genesis to Revelation” which offers insightful commentary, paragraph by paragraph, from the opening verses of Scripture all the way through the conclusion of the Book of Revelation. (This Study serves as a helper to teachers and preachers when preparing lessons or sermons.) Additionally, Church History, Spiritual Warfare, Metaphors, the Doctrine of Christ, and Basic Principles of Christian Living as applied to walking in Mercy while holding to Grace are all covered among all the Sozo Bible Studies. Rev. Newmyer even remembered our Young Folks, with a synopsis of critical points of Scripture, which by the way, also happens to be a great study experience for people of all ages when looking for a review of the highlights of the Bible.
