Who Are We?

Who are the West Suburban Bible Students?

—The Bible Students are an independent, non-denominational Christian fellowship. Congregations are worldwide. Each local congregation is totally independent; we have no central headquarters.

—The servants or ministers are unpaid and elected from within our local congregations on an annual basis, based on the Scriptural qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.

—We take no collections. All expenses are met by unsolicited, voluntary contributions.

—In most cases, we hold no real estate. Most congregations generally meet in rented facilities. Smaller groups often meet in private homes.
