Dr. Bill Heinrich was a teacher, home builder, and then after some unexpected and drastic life challenges that included homelessness and five cancer surgeries, he went to Bible college and seminary and became an ordained minister, researcher, and visiting missionary-professor. While he was a graduate student at Lancaster Bible College, he once wrote a term paper on the cultural background of the infancy narratives of the life of Jesus. The subject captured his passion. Soon it became a master’s degree research paper, and nearly two decades later, it is completed and on this website. When you read his testimony you will understand why he surrendered his retirement account to pay for this research and website.
His academic credentials were as follows:
- Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, OK.
Doctor in Ministry Degree
- Lancaster Bible College, Lancaster, PA
Master of Art in Ministry
Master of Art in Bible
- Millersville University, Millersville, PA
Master of Science Degree in Industrial Education
Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Education
Other schools he attended for one or more courses are as follows:
- Valley Forge Christian College, Phoenixville, PA
- Gratz College, Melrose Park, PA
- Marywood University, Scranton, PA
- Jerusalem University College, Israel.
With these credentials he had been a visiting professor in colleges in Pennsylvania, Israel, Jordan, and Nigeria. He authored articles and books, nearly all of which are available either free or for a nominal cost. In 1997 he established Evidence of Truth Ministries, and under that name he presented seminars at various churches and civic organizations.

Dr. Heinrich went home to be with Jesus on May 3, 2016. His wife, Paivi is now maintaining this website and continuing the ministry, Evidence of Truth. Mrs. Heinrich was born in Finland. After receiving the call to serve the Lord in Israel, she spent 10 years in Jerusalem volunteering in various ministries and serving the Holocaust survivors. In 2001 she was volunteering for the Feast of Tabernacles at the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem, when she met Bill. He was there (at the same time) for his master’s thesis on how the philosophy and theology of ICEJ was applied throughout Israel. They established a friendship and found the Lord had given them a common calling, vision and ministry. They were married on August 17, 2003 on the Sea of Galilee.
