The Bible Institute of Charleston is a subsidiary of ALTERNATIVES: Biblical Counseling & Education. It’s Public Face is a weekly Rundown of Current Events In Light of The Bible, called The Bible Forum. For 16 years it was a staple of Wilmington, North Carolina radio, broadcasting LIVE on secular radio stations each Sunday Night and on the internet. It was one of the very earliest radio programs to stream on the Web, doing so since 2001. With the move to the Charleston area, The Bible Forum became a weekly Online video program.
It’s Founder and Teacher is Warren Sprouse: Pastor, Educator and Show Host. Warren has pastored three churches in two States, for a total of 40 years, founded a Biblical Counseling Ministry in 1980 and a Weekly Radio Program in 2000. He served as Police Chaplain and as the Ranking Officer for the Hazlet Township N.J., Auxiliary Police Unit. A published author, Warren continues to write blogs and articles for the several websites listed below, as well as a Monthly Newsletter for Pastors [Rod & Staff]
A graduate of Philadelphia College of Bible, Warren gravitated to the Classic Fundamentalism of the early 20th Century, meaning a strong commitment to the Fundamentals of The Faith without the strident soteriology and narrow ecclesiology of the later 20th Century Baptist groups.
Warren is committed to a practical exposition of Scripture. The Bible is not merely an inspirational book to read when we need encouragement, although it serves that purpose. The Bible is a textbook from God! It, and it alone, reveals the Nature and Purpose of The One True God of Heaven! We study it for Life! God intends that we understand it; apply it; grow in grace by it and be prepared for every issue of life…..and death.
