Testimonials from Students

Below are Testimonials of JSBC Students present and past....
Benjamin - LOUISIANA
In the Romans class, Brother Larson was teaching on Chapter 7. He taught in Verse 1 how Paul says that a man is under the law as long as he lives, and then how in Verse 4, Paul states that the believer in Christ is dead to the law. So, in Verse 9, when Paul says that he was dead to the law once before the commandment came, Brother Larson explained that this verse indicates that Paul must have been saved before the account in Verses 7 through 13 took place. I had known this already, but it being explained in this fashion really stayed with me and gave me a greater appreciation for the seventh chapter of Romans.
Ryan - MISSOURI
My experience here at JSBC has been one epic journey. It’s so great to be in a place where the Word of God is taught, in an environment where the Holy Spirit is allowed free reign, and where my relationship with Christ is able to grow. What I love about the classes is that they are so in-depth, and the Holy Spirit will reveal things that I have never seen before. I leave class mesmerized at how God has always, from the beginning of time, had a plan to redeem man. I’m so glad to be studying here at JSBC, and I’m looking forward to what God has planned for my life.
Danielle - WEST VIRGINIA
In the fall of 2013, I took the Life of Christ class, taught by Professor Bob Cornell. Toward the end of the semester, we began learning about Jesus’ crucifixion and all that He suffered - from Gethsemane until His death. We learned about the stripes that He received and the crown of thorns He had to wear. Understanding how much Jesus suffered for me made me realize how little I deserve what He has done for me. It revealed to me how much He loves me because He wasn’t obligated to die for me; He chose to die for me.
JK - TENNESSEE
When the Lord sent me to JSBC, I never imagined how profoundly enlightening it would be. To be able to learn the true depth of the Word of God from the anointed professors here is amazing. Whether it’s the class on Acts, Colossians, Romans, Old Testament Survey, or the Life of Christ, they are all my favorites because it is all the Message of the Cross. Every class reveals the Word of God in a way, I pray, that every man, woman, and child on earth could experience. I look forward to the next semester and the next. Glory!
Rachel - LOUISIANA
The Lord has changed my life through JSBC. I was blessed to have been raised in a Christian home, and I accepted Christ and was baptized in the Holy Spirit, both at a young age. But as I got older, I realized something was missing from my walk with God. I knew I was saved, but the Lord was real to the godly men and women I knew in a way that He wasn’t real to me. I came here to JSBC desperate to find the Lord in a way that I had not known before. And, praise God, He met me right where I was and He has touched me! Come to JSBC and I promise you, you’ll never be the same again. The Lord is here in this place, and He is moving with mighty power.
Daniel - TEXAS
What JSBC means to me is the chance of a lifetime, first to be surrounded in a supportive Pentecostal environment and to take advantage of all the knowledge being taught about the Cross. There are very few places that give the chance to preach the Message of the Cross to its students, and coming here is a bigger blessing than what I could have ever expected. Being here did not just help my Christian life, but it showed me that I’m still expecting an even bigger change in my life that God wants for me. The biggest thing that I have learned here at JSBC is to walk by faith and trust that God has everything in control in my life.

Hanon - CALIFORNIA
There is a very strong anointing on the teachers here at JSBC that makes it a lot easier to understand the Word of God. I know I found something special here, and, due to the strong opposition against the Message of the Cross, and given the opportunity and confirmation, I decided to come here! Being here equipped me with a greater understanding of the Message of the Cross in my spirit. Also, it more readily allowed the opportunity for the Word of God to transform my heart and life as well! Before beginning now my third year, we have been experiencing a lot of praising and shouting as the presence God is felt during our fellowshipping on our dorm floor!
Chez - LOUISIANA
I will begin my sophomore year at Jimmy Swaggart Bible College this fall. The journey I’ve had to progress through has been a difficult one. I’ve had many trials, desert places, and attacks from the Devil to bring me to the end of myself. This college has helped me establish a closer relationship with my heavenly Father and to know His love. I’m excited for this upcoming semester because even though these times of “pressing” will be difficult, it is worth it to be close to Him and His love. The Lord is using JSBC to strengthen my faith, establish a foundation, and draw me closer to Him so He can raise up a standard in this world which He can use to proclaim His glory.
Lacy - LOUISIANA
I was called by the Lord to JSBC. During my time here, I have had the honor to be taught by God’s leaders whose hearts are grounded in the Word by godly experiences. I believe they have been taught by God Himself. Teachers and students alike share tears, laughter, and joy as the Holy Spirit takes control, comforting souls and giving hope for the future. As I reflect on my stay here, the Message of the Cross has strengthened my faith to believe God for more and to believe that all of His promises are yes and amen. This school always leaves me thirsty and desiring for more of God’s Word and His presence, and at the same time, fulfilled.
Lindsey - LOUISIANA
Jimmy Swaggart Ministries andJimmy Swaggart Bible College are very important to me because they have had an incredible impact on my family. Both my parents were saved as a result of Brother Swaggart's preaching. My mother was also barren, but God healed her and gave her three biological children. A few years ago, God answered our prayers and provided for us to live in Baton Rouge and be a part of the work at this ministry. Near the end of my first semester of Bible college, I reflected on all the life-changing things I have learned. What I have experienced has left a positive impact on me that has increased my knowledge of the Word and how to apply it. If you truly want to learn more about the God who made a way of salvation for you, then come to JSBC and experience the Message of the Cross.
Fransisco - BRAZIL
As an audit student of JSBC, I have had the privilege of attending many of the classes where I had real experiences with God. I am glad God does not leave anybody out of what He is doing here. I have gained a better understanding of the Word of God, and of subjects such as the Message of the Cross, how to share the Gospel, and the baptism with the Holy Spirit. We have an excellent faculty, with ministers truly called by God, Spirit-filled, and Spirit-led. The college has played a vital role in helping me to seek and receive the baptism with the Holy Spirit. It has also provided a favorable environment in which I could receive precious encouraging words from the Lord in times of need. It has been also a blessing to see some of the young students growing in the Lord and developing their gifts over a period of time; it is a great inspiration to witness the touch of God in their lives.
Colton - TEXAS
Being at JSBC has changed my outlook on Christianity. When you come to JSBC, it’s all about your personal walk with Christ - growing closer and closer to the Lord and letting the Spirit of God have His way in your life. The FACULTY & STAFF and brethren here have encouraged me to seek the face of God on a daily basis and depend on Him in my daily walk with Christ. When my time here at JSBC is finished, I hope that no matter what obstacles I face in life, I will be able to trust in the Cross of Christ and let the Holy Spirit lead me and guide me through every situation. I am looking forward to what God has in store for my coming years at JSBC.
Brittany - COLORADO
When I was 12 years old, the Lord put this college on my heart. I grew up listening to the ministry and hearing the truth, so when I finally got here six years later, I wondered what more I could really learn. Throughout the past two years here, I have found out just how much I didn’t know! However, JSBC is not just about having a greater understanding of the Bible (although you certainly will), it is also about the process God brings you through while being here. The process of the truth — that Jesus and His work on the Cross is the only way to salvation, victory, and abundant life  — becoming a reality in your heart and not just knowledge in your head. No matter how old or young, whether you want to be a doctor, a preacher, or just a better Christian, if your heart’s desire is to know more about Jesus Christ, then JSBC is the school for you.
Courtney - MISSOURI
Coming down to JSBC has been a life-changing experience. There was a personal hunger to grow a stronger relationship with the Lord as well as an understanding of His Word. Through it all, the Lord has been faithful to me and He has helped me grow more than I have ever expected to grow and taken me through valleys with the assurance that He is there helping me every step of the way. At this college, you will learn and grow in the Lord as He helps you understand more about the Cross. It’s a wonderful experience and journey in the Lord.
Aaron - ILLINOIS
Ever since I arrived at JSBC I have grown stronger and closer in my relationship with Jesus Christ. My prayer life has been enhanced thanks to receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit during one of the classes this semester. If you are looking for a closer and stronger relationship with Jesus Christ and you are seeking the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, then JSBC is the perfect school for you. God is doing something special here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and I just want to encourage you to check out Jimmy Swaggart Bible College. It is the Harvard of Bible colleges!
Joseph - LOUISIANA
As my third year at Jimmy Swaggart Bible College comes to a close, it yields a great opportunity to give thanks for the time spent here. Above everything else that could be said, the most important feature of Jimmy Swaggart Bible College is that its teachers handle the Word of God with sincerity. Twisting Scriptures, or leaving out Scripture just to salvage one’s corrupt agenda or to climb the social ladder of the day seems to be, unfortunately, at the core of all the methods and machinations thought up in the minds of our modern-day preachers and teachers. Why is that? It must be because they don’t believe that the “old paths” still work. JSBC is proof that the old paths do work. Martin Luther, the Great Reformer, regarding this very subject, had this to say: “For if only the pastors remain faithful and preserve the doctrine, God will bestow His grace that there will always be a number to accept it; for where the Word is pure and unadulterated, there will, of course, be fruit.” I am very thankful for the honest approach to Scripture that is exhibited in all the teachers here at JSM. It is the reason for the many spiritual blessings we experience here at JSBC.
