Admissions

Thank you for your interest in World Harvest Bible Training Center. WHBTC is a full-time 2-year school with an optional 3rd year internship. This school has been established to teach the Word of God and to train the Body of Christ how to recognize, honor and flow with the Holy Spirit. Pastor Nancy Dufresne draws upon many years of ministry experience, bringing instruction and revelation of God’s Word to prepare and equip students to experience longevity and success. As the Apostle Paul states in Romans 1:11, “For I long to see you that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end that ye may be established….” Pastor Nancy knows that some things are better caught than taught, so she calls this a “catching school.”

All applicants of World Harvest Bible Training Center must be under the headship of a pastor or be signed up to be in membership in a local church. In addition, they must either be actively serving or be signed up to serve in the Ministry of Helps in their local church.

Students will receive a Certificate of Achievement at the end of the first year of studies. At the completion of the second year, students will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Completion of the course requirements for graduation from World Harvest Bible Training Center does not automatically qualify a student for ordination through Dufresne Ministries or World Harvest Church.

Each school year is divided into three trimesters, beginning in September and ending the following May. Classes are conducted Monday through Thursday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Tuition for the school year is $1,800. Textbooks are not included in the tuition fee, but they will be available for purchase through the World Harvest Bookstore.

World Harvest Bible Training Center does not provide housing or employment for students.

Statement of Faith *
Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE . . . THE SCRIPTURES INSPIRED The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the living, infallible, and everlasting rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason. (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12) THE ONE TRUE GODHEAD The triune Godhead is comprised of 3 separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one entity. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and The Holy Spirit. (John 1:1-5, 10-14; Matthew 28:18-20) MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.” But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7: Romans 5:12-21) THE SALVATION OF MAN (a) Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:24; John 3:3) On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalm 103:3), being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by grace we are saved through faith. (Ephesians 2:8) “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart; that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” (Romans 10:8-10) (b) The Evidences of Salvation. The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. (Romans 8:16; I John 3:18-19, 24) The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. “You will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16-20) (c) Faith and Works. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our works will determine the rewards in eternity. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Galatians 2:16; II Corinthians 5:10) BAPTISM IN WATER The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures by all who have truly repented and in their hearts have truly believed on Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Acts 10:47-48) THE LORD'S SUPPER “And when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, ‘This is my body which is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup.” (I Corinthians 11:24-25, 28) THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-5; Acts 2:38) With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. (Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 12:1-31) This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. (Acts 2:38; 10:44-46; 11:14-16) THE EVIDENCE OF THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT The full consummation of the Baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and by the subsequent manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service. (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2, 6; 1:8; Galatians 5:16-26) THE CHURCH The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and church of the first born, whose names are written in Heaven. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23) TOTAL PROSPERITY (a) Spiritual. III John 2; II Corinthians 5:17-21. (b) Mental. II Timothy 1:7; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 26:3. (c) Physical. Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24. (d) Financial. Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-15; Deuteronomy 28:1-14. (e) Social. Proverbs 3:4; Luke 2:52; Esther 2:15. BLESSED HOPE Jesus is coming again to gather all His Saints to ever be with Him (I Corinthians 15:51-52; I Thessalonians. 4:16-17) THE LAKE OF FIRE Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead. The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and anyone whose name is not found written in the Book of Life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. This is the second death, the lake of fire. (Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15) THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS The Scriptures promise the return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His saints from Heaven to rule and reign for one thousand years on earth. (II Thessalonians 1:7; Revelation 19:11-16; 20:1-6) After this, there shall be a new heaven and a new earth. (Rev. 21) MARRIAGE AND SEXUAL RELATIONS The Church shall only sanction or conduct marriages between a man and a woman. God instituted marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family, the basic structure of human society. (Genesis 2:24) God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged other than in the context of marriage between a man and a woman. (Genesis 19:5, 26:811; Leviticus 18:130; Romans 1:2629: 1 Corinthians 5:1, 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:18; Hebrews 13:4. I UNDERSTAND THESE ARE THE TENETS OF FAITH OF WORLD HARVEST CHURCH/DUFRESNE MINISTRIES AND AGREE TO ABIDE BY THEM FOR MY ENTIRE ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE AT WORLD HARVEST BIBLE TRAINING CENTER.
