At BTE Ministries, our goal is to bridge the gap of over two thousand years of history to bring to the English speaking world the meaning and message of the original languages of the Scriptures – God’s Holy Word!
By studying the Bible in its original language, we hope to inspire and encourage all believers to continue deepening their understanding of God’s Word while growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We believe the Word of God is not a commodity; it is a free gift available to anyone and everyone who wants to receive it.
We facilitate the study of the entire Bible, approaching it as one complete message that reveals the true nature and character of God. This is precisely why we teach the Bible verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter, and book-by-book in rich detail.
These thorough resources are not meant merely for education but for transformation, helping believers develop a closer, more intimate relationship with God.
While stationed in Florida during his time in the Navy, Pastor Bill found himself sitting on a pier one night. With his back to the ocean, he looked out over the land and watched an electrical storm fill the sky. It stretched as far as the eye could see — an overwhelming spectacle that appeared bigger than life itself.
In response to it all, he said, "God, if you're real, reveal yourself to me.” Two years later, the Lord answered that prayer when Bill experienced a spiritual birth wherein the Spirit of God filled and sealed his spirit.
President of BTE Ministries
Look at the command: This is my Son, the Beloved One, in whom I am well-pleased; hear Him. Hear Him is the command.
If I were to give one message to you and today was my last day here on earth, I would say, 'When I go, hear Him; hear Jesus.'
It is not about people. We will miss each other. We miss the loved ones when they pass and go to be with the Lord. But the reality is, listen to the Lord. His instruments will come and go but He will remain the same."
