Heidelberg Bible Institute
The Heidelberg Bible Institute is not intended to be light Bible study for the casually interested, but rather an intensive college level curriculum to prepare men and women for full time ministry should God call them to that. For this cause, a higher standard is necessitated.
Courses and Times:
This current semester will begin:
Is should be understood that with the fluctuating schedule of many of our students, it's impossible to maintain a strict calendar semester without inevitably forcing students to quit. Students and teacher will adjust class times and course end date based on the groups needs each semester.
Most every course is open to all Bible Baptist Church members – men and women alike. Some courses such as Preparation and Delivery of Sermons , Pastoral Epistles and Preacher and his Problems are reserved for male students only.
Non-church members will be considered on a case by case basis.
Tuition is not paid in monetary value. The diligence, commitment and character of the student is the only payment required. For this cause, slackers will not be tolerated. Anyone not giving 110% will be warned and then dismissed.
The student is responsible to pay for all necessary books and materials for each course.
Again, the student's payment is hearty dedication that shows itself by:
Auditing the class:
To “audit” a class simple means that you want to sit in and learn, but not be formally enrolled or tested. No credit or diploma is given to auditors. This is acceptable for ladies that so wish, but male “auditors” will not be accepted. Those auditing a class should conscientiously yield the right to ask questions and teacher's time to those enrolled for a grade and diploma.
Anyone accepted into enrollment will sign a covenant each semester they are enrolled. In essence, you will agree with all that is contained therein and will agree to give your diligent best to adhere to the word and spirit of the covenant. Part of this agreement is that the student confesses that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Saviour and that they will strive to walk with Him and not living in any gross or open sin. They will put forth every effort to keep themselves from sin, finish the course, and perform every task as unto the Lord Jesus Christ.
(*courses have not been taught yet)
Although our institute is not accredited, we are convinced that upon completion of the Heidelberg Bible Institute, the graduate will be able to "hold his own" with any skeptic, critic or gainsayer that he may encounter. He will furthermore be thoroughly equipped to handle most problems that occur in the ministry as well as be able to preach and teach the Bible for many years if not only upon the material that he receives here. He will understand what it means to walk with God in good times and in bad. More to follow...
