Academic and Financial Policies


Academic Policy

Credit System

SMBI operates under a semester hour system. The unit for counting credit is the semester hour. A semester hour is defined as one hour of class or coursework done each week over a period for 17 weeks.


Course Completion

Each student is allowed to complete each course at his or her own rate of progress as long as it complies with the Academic Hold/Drop from Rolls guidelines found later in this policy.


Grading System

The following scale pertains to all programs offered by SMBI (minimum passing score for all courses is 80%)


A = Excellent; 4.0 quality points; 94-100%

B = Good; 3.0 quality points; 88-93%

C = Average; 2.0 quality points; 80-87%

F = Failure; 0 quality points

P = Passing; 0 quality points

I = Incomplete; 0 quality points


Grading Policy

A score of 80% or higher will be required to pass any course. Scores less than 80% will result in an incomplete grade being recorded for the course and no credit will be given for the course toward the completion of any SMBI program.


Students desiring to retake the final exam will be required to review the course over a period of not less than 30 days before a second final exam is offered. If the second exam is passed, then the passing score will be recorded in the student’s record and credit will be given toward the completion of the enrolled SMBI program. If the second final exam is not passed with a final score of 80% or higher, the incomplete grade will remain and no credit will be given for the course toward the completion of any SMBI program.


Any additional retakes of the exam will also require a review of the course over a period of not less than 30 days before additional final exam attempts are offered. It is our desire that all students eventually attain a passing score for each course they attempt. For this reason, there is no limit on how many retake final exams may be taken. However, once a passing score is achieved, that score will become the permanent final score for the course. Any deviations from this policy must be approved by the senior pastor of Selah Mountain Ministries.


Grade Appeal Process

If a student feels that there is an error on his or her grade report, he or she must begin the appeal process within thirty days of receiving the grade report. After 30 days the grade is considered final and is not subject to appeal by the student or any third party. SMBI is not responsible for lost tests, projects, etc. Please be sure to make a copy of all material prior to submitting material to SMBI for grading or evaluation.

Appendix A

Doctrinal Statement

 

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and is the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man. The Holy Bible, written by men, inspired by the Holy Spirit, is infallible and has been preserved inerrant by God. Due to reasons of textual reliability, we use the Authorized Version, otherwise referred to as the King James Version of the Bible, as the foundation of our ministry. The Bible is the divinely inspired final authority for every age and every life.


- By the “Holy Bible” we mean the collection of sixty-six books from Genesis to Revelation. - By “Inspired”and “Infallible” we mean that the books of the Bible were originally written by men of God as they were moved by the Holy Ghost in such a way that their writings were supernaturally controlled by God and were free from error as no other writings have been or ever will be inspired. - By “textual reliability” we mean that the underlying New Testament Greek manuscripts used by the King James translators were superior as they were ultimately, in time past, copies of copies in constant use by local assemblies of believers throughout Church History, that the underlying Old Testament manuscripts used in the translation were the Masoretic Hebrew texts copied by and entrusted to the Jews and that both of these texts were not hidden away but recognized, circulated, and validated by the New Testament priesthood of believers traced back to Antioch, Syria where they were first called “Christians.” - We believe that due to the trustworthiness that the Authorized Version of the Bible has with English speaking peoples, the Reina-Valera-Gomez version of the Bible is the best translation for Latin American Spanish speaking peoples. Psalms 12:6-7; 19:7-11; 33:1; 78:1-8; 100:5; 105:8; 119:89, 105, 111, 152, 160; Proverbs 22:20-21; 30:5-6; Ecclesiastes 3:14; Isaiah 8:20; 40:8; 59:21; Matthew 5:17-18; 24:35; Luke 16:31; 21:33; 24:25-27, 44, 45; John 1:1; 5:39, 45-47; 10:34-36; 12:48; 17:17; Acts 1:16; 11:26; Romans 3:2; 15:4; Ephesians 6:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:19


THE GODHEAD

We believe that there is only one loving and true God existing eternally in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit- equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct, but harmonious, functions in the great work of redemption. God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe, is inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and is worthy of all possible honor, praise, confidence, and love.Genesis 1:1, 26; Exodus 20:2-3; 15:11; I Chronicles 29:11; Psalms 83:18; 90:2; 96:4-5; 145:17; 147:5; Isaiah 6:3; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:30 John 4:24; 10:30; 15:26; 17:5; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 11:33; 1 Corinthians 2:10-11; 8:6; 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 2:18; 4:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1 Timothy 1:17; 1 John 5:7; Revelation 4:8, 11


THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person and that He is equal to and is of the same nature as God the Father and God the Son. To the unbelieving world, the Holy Spirit bears witness to the truth of the Gospel, and convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgment. The Holy Spirit indwells, baptizes, seals, and sanctifies all believers at the moment of their salvation. He also endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, and fills all believers in response to confession of sin and yielding. We further believe that the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance) and permanent spiritual gifts are evidence of His indwelling rather than speaking in tongues or other ecstatic and spectacular demonstrations. He is also referred to in the scriptures as the Holy Ghost. Genesis 1:1-3; 6:3; Psalms 139:7; Matthew 3:11; 28:19; Luke 1:35; 3:22; 12:12; John 1:33; 3:5-6; 14:16, 17, 26; 15:26-27; 16:7-15; Acts 5:30-32; 11:16; Romans 8:9-16, 26, 27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:11, 19; 12:1-11; 13:8-10; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; Hebrews 9:14; 1 Peter 1:2


THE SON

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, and that He is both the Son of God and God the Son. As both God and man, He lived a sinless life, taught with authority, wrought mighty works, wonders and signs, was crucified and died as a substitutional, sacrificial payment for our sins, was buried, and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. He later ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the Head of the Church, is interceding for the believers, is preparing an abode for His children, and from whence He is coming in the clouds to rapture His church immediately prior to the Tribulation and from whence He is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth at the conclusion of the Tribulation to set up His Millennial Kingdom. Genesis 3:15; Psalms 2:7; Isaiah 7:14; 52:13-15; 53:1-9; Matthew 1:18-25; 28:5-6; Mark 1:1; Luke 1:31, 35; John 1:1, 2, 14, 18; 14:2-3; 19:16-18, 30, 33; Acts 1:9, 11; Romans 3:24-26; 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 12-19, 47, 51-53; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 4:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-16; 7:23-25; 9:24; 1 John 2:1-2; 3:2; 5:20

THE DEVIL

We believe that Satan was once perfect and enjoyed heavenly honors (then named Lucifer), but through pride and ambition to be as God, fell and took with him a host of angels. He is now the malignant prince of the power of the air and the unholy god of this world. Satan is man’s great tempter, the enemy of Christ, the accuser of the saints, the father of lies, the author of all false religions, the lord of the antichrist, and the author of all powers of darkness. He is, however, destined to a final defeat at the hands of God’s Son and to the judgment of an eternal hell — a place prepared for him and his angels. Genesis 3:14-15; 1 Peter 5:8; Isaiah 14:12-15; 2 Peter 2:4; Ezekiel 28:14-17; 1 John 2:22; 3:8; 4:3; Zechariah 3:1; 2 John 7; Matthew 4:1, 3, 6, 9; 13:25, 37-39; 25:41; Jude 6; Mark 13:21-22; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-11; Luke 22:3-4; John 8:44; 14:30; 2 Corinthians 11:13-15; Ephesians 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 3:5; Revelation 12:7-12; 13:13-14; 19:11, 16, 20; 20:1-3, 10

THE FALLEN CONDITION OF MAN

We believe that man was created in complete innocence in a perfect environment, but of his own volition, transgressed God. The result of Adam’s sin is not only physical death and spiritual death (separation from God for eternity) for all mankind, but the fall also endowed upon all mankind a sinful nature. Therefore, all people are sinners, not only by constraint, but also by choice. They are unable, in and of themselves to rectify their condition and regain the former position of innocence, and are under just condemnation without defense or excuse before God. Genesis 3:1-6; Psalms 51:5; 53:1, 3; Isaiah 64:6; Ezekiel 18:19-20; John 3:18; Romans 1:18, 20, 28, 32; 3:10-19, 23; 5:12, 19; 6:23; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1, 3, 12; Hebrews 2:3

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is a gift of God, available to every person, by grace through a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone. Salvation was made possible by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ who made a full and vicarious atonement for our sin, providing redemption from the curse of the law. This justification of the sinner through His substitutionary death on the cross, when personally received by faith, results in salvation or being “born again.” The new birth (regeneration) results in a new creature (transformation) in Jesus Christ that is instantaneous and not a process. In the new birth, the one dead in trespasses and sins responds to the gospel according to the scriptures, and is imparted a new nature and spiritual life not previously possessed, is forgiven of sin, and is given eternal life solely by the power of the Holy Spirit. Salvation is totally apart from any effort of man such as good works, baptism, or church membership. Proper evidences of salvation are repentance, faith, and newness of life, as well as the evidence of the fruit of the spirit (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance). A true believer is eternally secure- he cannot lose his salvation, but sin in his life may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God, the loss of salvation assurance, and bring the loving discipline of his Heavenly Father. Genesis 15:6 Psalms 37:24; 51:1-4, 7, 10, 12; Isaiah 53:4-7, 11, 12; 55:6-7; Matthew 4:17; 16:24-25; 18:11; Mark 1:15; Luke 12:8; 18:13-14; John 1:12-13; 3:3, 5-8, 16-17; 5:24; 6:37; 10:18, 27-30; Acts 2:37-38; 13:38-39; 15:11; 16:30-31; 20:21; Romans 1:17; 3:24-25, 28; 4:1-8; 5:1, 8-9, 15, 20; 6:1-2, 10-13, 23; 8:1,16-17, 29-39; 9:11; 10:9-13; 1 Corinthians 3: 12-15; 15:3-4, 20; 2 Corinthians 5:17-19, 21; Galatians 1:4; 3:11; 5:22-25; Ephesians 1:7; 2:1, 8-10; 4:30; 5:9; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:13; Titus 3:3-7; Hebrews 2:14; 7:25; 8:12; 9:12,22; 10:38; 12:2, 5-8; 13:5; James 2:14-26; 1 Peter 1:23; 2:24; 3:18; 2 Peter 1:4; 1 John 2:1-2; 4:10, 15; 51,11-13; Revelation 3:20

SANCTIFICATION

We believe in immediate positional sanctification at the moment of salvation, whereby God eternally sets the believer apart as belonging to Him by redemption and places the believer into the family of God as children, joint heirs with Jesus Christ. We are made partakers of God’s holiness in the process of progressive sanctification that begins at the new birth and is carried on in the heart of the believer as he yields his life to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit; through the Word of God, surrendered will, prayer, watchfulness, and self-examination. Ultimate sanctification will be the portion of every believer when finally in the presence of the Lord, the soul and spirit will be united in the resurrected body; complete and free from every trace or effect of sin and rebellion.John 1:12; 17:17; Acts 20:32; 26:18; Romans 8:14-17; 15:16; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 6:11, 20; 2 Corinthians 6:18; 13:5; Galatians 3:29; 4:7; Ephesians 5:26; 6:18; Philippians 2:12-13; 3:20-21; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; 5:23; 2 Timothy 2:21; Titus 3:7; Hebrews 2:10; 10:10-14; 11:7; James 2:5; 1 Peter 3:7; 1 John 3:1-2

SEPARATION

We believe in a three-fold doctrine of separation encompassing: (1) the separation of the believer from all worldly practices that may dishonor Jesus Christ, that contradict biblical instruction, or that might damage the testimony of the individual believer or the church, (2) the separation of the local church from all affiliation and fellowship with those individuals or organizations that deny the verities of the faith, and (3) the separation of church and state.
Matthew 22:21; Romans 12:1-2; 14:13, 21; 1 Corinthians 8:9; 2 Corinthians 6:11-7:1; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 John 9-11


THE ETERNAL STATE
We believe that the souls of believers do, at death, immediately pass into the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven and there remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body at the rapture of the church, when the body and soul will be reunited and will be in glory forever with Him. The souls of unbelievers, at death, immediately pass into conscious torment in Hell until the final judgment at the Great White Throne, when the body and soul will be reunited and cast into the Lake of Fire; not to be annihilated; but to be punished with an everlasting separation from the holiness, glory, power, and love of God.
Psalms 9:17; Isaiah 14:9-11; Ezekiel 32:21; Matthew 7:21-23; 25:46; Luke 16:19-26; 23:43; John 3:14-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-54; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 3:20; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Hebrews 9:27; 2 Peter 2:9; Revelation 14:13; 20:11-15; 21:1, 4, 27; 22:14

THE CHURCH

We believe in the Church— a living, spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and in which all regenerated people in this dispensation are members; and that those who are truly born again are baptized by the Holy Spirit into a vital union with Christ and into the universal Church which is his body and Bride. The local church is the visible expression of the Body of Christ and is a congregation of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, scripturally baptized, and associated by covenant for worship, teaching, evangelism, edification, observance of the ordinances, and fellowship. The mission of the local church is to make individual disciples, baptize them, and teach them. The local church has the absolute right of self-government, free from the interference of any earthly hierarchy of individuals or organizations. The officers of the local church are pastors and deacons. The local church is the center of God’s program for this age. The Church began when Christ died on the cross. Ephesians 2:16; Matthew 16:16-18; 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-47; 4:32-37; 6:1-6; 14:23, 27; 15:22; 20:17-28; I Corinthians 3:9-11; 5:1-5, 11-13; 6:1-3; 11:2; 12:12-27; 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 8:23-24; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 1:22-23; 4:11-16; 5:23-37; Colossians 1:18, 24; 1 Timothy 3; Titus 1:5-11; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 2-3

THE ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted two ordinances to be observed by all believers until His return— baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the believer’s first act of obedience to Christ and involves immersion once in water in the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, and our identification with the Saviour in death to sin and resurrection to new life— a public recognition of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Baptism follows a public confession of the believer’s salvation and is a prerequisite to church membership. The Lord’s Supper (Communion) is a memorial service in which the elements of unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine symbolize the sinless body and blood of Christ, reminding the believer of the love of God. Participation in the Lord’s Supper is only for those who are born again believers, and is always preceded by careful self-examination.

Matthew 26:26-38; 28:19; John 3:23; Acts 2:38-42, 47; 8:12, 36-39; 9:17-18; 10:44-48; 16:14-15, 32, 33; 18:8; 19:4-5; Romans 6:3-6; 1 Corinthians 11:23-30; Colossians 2:12

 

Final words

As hard as we have tried to anticipate every contingency, we sometimes must make changes in our operational guidelines so that we can provide this ministry outreach in a way that honor's God and serves others.
