Institutional Goals

Education Philosophy

Statement of Faith

  1. Discover talents, gifts, and calling to personally invest in building God's kingdom. 

  2. Model a distinct worldview empowered by the Spirit in demonstrating a righteous lifestyle. 

  3. Demonstrate mastery knowledge and competency by applying wisdom to God's calling in ministry. 

  4. ​Grow through observing integrity modeled by relationships with institutional leadership.

The principles and procedures incorporated in our philosophical position rests entirely upon the infallible, inerrant, and immutable word of God.  The systematic training of all students at Heritage is from a Pentecostal Holiness perspective. the Bible College is committed to academic excellence for the honor of Christ and is also committed to the education of the whole person.  Therefore, our educational process is Christ-centered and based upon the following assumptions: 

Biblical

​We believe a Bible-centered curriculum is mandatory.  All truth is centered in the triune Creator God.  This truth is applicable to all areas of life and studies.  Heritage teaches these Biblical principles from a Pentecostal Holiness view.  Our educational process allows the application of these truths to become the foundational strengths from which our students develop a strong, sound, Biblical worldview.

Spiritual 

The spiritual development of our students is one of our highest priorities.  We believe that the foundation for spiritual development is through the regenerating and sanctifying grace provided through the redemption of Jesus Christ by the agency of the Holy Spirit. Spiritual life is nurtured by maintaining a personal devotional life in cooperation with the Spirit of God and prayerful study
of God’s Word.

Intellectual

We believe that students should be well-grounded spiritually and thoroughly educated.  Students are challenged to live by the scripture of 2 Timothy 2:15, “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Since we believe that spiritual development springs from the wisdom of the Word, the Bible is the center of our curriculum.  Each curriculum includes a well-rounded study of the Bible theology, general education, and other related subjects.  Because we believe that students should be able to communicate effectively, particular stress is given to grammar composition, and speech.

Physical

The human body is “the temple of the Holy Ghost’ (I Corinthians 6:19).  We seek to develop a biblical appreciation for the body.  The development of balanced nutritional habits is encouraged.  Because we believe tobacco, alcoholic beverages, and illicit drugs are harmful to the body, we require total abstinence of all Heritage students, faculty, staff, and administrators.  In our dedication to educate Christian workers, we emphasize appropriate grooming, which indicates self-respect and respect for others.  The highest taste in personal appearance includes modesty and simplicity.  

Ministerial

Faculty are dedicated to the development of effective ministers, missionaries, Christian educators, and laity who are committed to God’s truth, intellectual pursuits, and Pentecostal Holiness perspective. Thus, education explores and develops practical ministry opportunities.

We believe:

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

  • In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary.

  • That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

  • That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

  • That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

  • In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

  • Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people.

  • In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

  • In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

  • In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized
    in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.  

  • That divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

  • In the Lord’s Supper and washing of the saints’ feet.  

  • In the imminent second coming of Jesus Christ.

  • In the literal, pre-millennial, second coming of Jesus; first, to resurrect the righteous dead and to carry away the living saints to meet him in the air; second, to reign with his saints on Earth for a thousand years.

  • In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
