Letter of Introduction:
Dear Prospective Student,
Thank you for your interest in Grace Ministries Bible College!
THE BIBLE COLLEGE PROCESS
- All prospective students, even those just auditing/listening to the classes, must complete and submit
an application form in its entirety FIRST!
We cannot honor any course work done by those NOT ENROLLED in the school prior to doing the work,
nor answer any correspondence.
- Once a person is accepted into one of the three programs - (1) Bible College, (2) Student Parallel or (3) Elective Program (auditing),
he or she will be notified by e-mail (or mail when necessary) and sent the necessary course materials. Read more about these programs below -
- A mandatory orientation will be held prior to the beginning of each school year. Students enrolling after the start of a school year and correspondence students are required to listen to the tape of the orientation.
Please read this entire page.
By continuing on to the college courses via the links below you are agreeing that you have
read and understand the information contained on this page and
that you agree to abide by the policies and guidelines
of this website and college.
BASIC FINANCIAL POLICY FOR ALL STUDENTS
Students are not charged tuition. However, it should not be interpreted that GMBC or GMBI is a "free college." The financial expectation of all GMBC and GMBI students is that they will give in support of the school as the Lord leads and as they purpose in their hearts. We have no private benefactors and expenses include text books, audio tapes, duplication equipment and supplies, printing, and postage to mail course materials to correspondence students. All students have a responsibility before God to do their part.
Grace Ministries Bible College is Full-Gospel in nature, which means we believe in the present-day operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit as outlined in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 and that they can operate through all Christians.
» Our purpose: To help Believers both discover and become equipped to fulfill God's call upon their lives.
» Our process: A distinct, precise, methodical and line-upon-line study of God's word with courses arranged in a specific order as directed by God. Each course is designed to lead students in a defined and progressive manner toward the stated purpose.
GMBC offers Christians three distinct tracks of study:
» Grace Ministries Bible College
» Grace Ministries Bible Institute - Student Parallel
» Grace Ministries Bible Institute - Electives Program
(1) GRACE MINISTRIES BIBLE COLLEGE
Presently, GMBC is a four year program.
» First Year graduates receive a Certificate in Christian Theology
» Second Year graduates receive a Diploma in Theological Studies (equivalent to an Associate's Degree)
» Third Year graduates receive a Diploma in Biblical Theology.
» Fourth Year graduates receive a Diploma in Christian Theology (equivalent to a Bachelor's Degree).
Courses are available through correspondence. Students receive a syllabus and all required text books for each course at no charge.
(2) GRACE MINISTRIES BIBLE INSTITUTE - STUDENT PARALLEL
GMBI - Student Parallel is the same as GMBC with the following major exceptions:
» Students are not required to complete course assignments (read text books, write papers or take exams)
» Students do not receive college credits for completed courses (GMBI - Student Parallel students may receive college credit by converting to GMBC Student status and completing all required coursework for each course taken.)
» GMBI Certificates of Completion are awarded for each school year completed.
(3) GRACE MINISTRIES BIBLE INSTITUTE - ELECTIVE PROGRAM
In the GMBI - Elective Program, students are not required to follow the specific order of courses as required for GMBC and GMBI - Student Parallel.
Instead, students are allowed to choose which courses they take, and no course work is required. However, no certificates will be awarded for this program.
May God bless you with His guidance and wisdom as you pursue the fulfillment of His call on your life!
Dr. James E. Martin, Ph.D.
