Higher Education Policies


Recognized Institutions of Higher Education


The OEE shall recognize three categories of institutions of higher education: 

 

  1. Bible College: An educational institution whose primary purpose is the training of students in Bible related fields and whose curriculum is Bible and ministry centered.

  2. Christian College: An educational institution whose curriculum is Bible centered but offers degrees in fields of a secular nature such as business or accounting.  

  3. Seminary: An educational institution that offers graduate level degrees in theology and ministry-related fields.

Privileges and Obligations of Endorsed Institutions of Higher Education

 

  1. All endorsed institutions must adhere to the Articles of Faith and Fundamental Doctrine of UPCI.

    • ​All members of the administration and staff must sign an affirmation statement every year.

    • UPCI licensed ministers who sign the UPCI affirmation need not sign a separate statement.

  2. All colleges shall procure the written endorsement of the pastor before enrolling a student from a United Pentecostal Church.

  3. No students in a recognized Bible school shall be permitted to transfer from their home church or their home district into the church or district where they are students as long as they are enrolled as students in the same. All students who are attending a United Pentecostal Church are to attend a local church in fellowship with the UPCI while attending Bible school. Students remaining on campus during summer vacation are subject to jurisdiction of the Bible school and must continue attending the local church during that time.

  4. Endorsed Bible colleges shall confine their efforts to religious education, college leadership, and prescribed curriculum in accordance with the Manual of the United Pentecostal Church International. The president and faculty members shall refrain from including in their teaching, leadership, and college publications anything of a personal inference that would tend to engender political inter-church activity within the student body and the college directed against any official of the general, district, and local organization, or that would reflect upon the integrity and teaching of another Bible college.

Our Endorsed Institutions:

  • Bible Colleges: Currently six endorsed Bible colleges

  • Christian College: Our mission to educate, empower, and equip Apostolics for life and servant leadership in the church and the world.
