TMC Bible College exists for the purpose of providing biblical training for Christian discipleship and leadership. TMC Bible College is a non-denominational, spirit-filled Bible school with fundamental roots. Spiritual education in these Christian traditions involves not only intensive Bible study under a proficient faculty but also a practical ministry experience for each student and the development of sound discipline in the student’s personal life. For the accomplishment of this last goal, the institute requires that each student, as a condition of his/her admission, agree to the following for the entire time of his/her enrollment at the institute.
- To be familiar with and abide by the requirements published in the TMC Bible College Student Handbook and such amendments as may be made from time to time, by announcement or otherwise.
- To live in a spirit of good campus citizenship, showing consideration and respect for the personal freedom and rights of others.
- To observe with special care the following standards of personal behavior, whether or not the student agrees with the institute as to the relationship of these things to a consecrated Christian life:
To endeavor to help others abide by the institute objectives and standards:
- To refrain from the use or possession of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, narcotics and hallucinogenic drugs, and from gambling and social dancing.
- To exercise mature Christian judgment in regard to reading matter, movies, Internet sites, and other forms of entertainment, taking into consideration the standards of the Scriptures: Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.” Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God (II Cor. 6:17 – 7:1).
- To adhere to the dress code as stated in the TMC Bible College handbook.
- To neither incite nor aid another in violating the standards.
- To encourage adherence to the standards by word and example.
- To tell another and his/her observed fault in the biblical fashion. The person at fault, then, has a responsibility to correct his/her behavior (Matt. 18:15-17). If the person persists in disregarding the standards, it becomes the moral obligation of the students and faculty to report the violations to the appropriate authorities.
Note: These standards apply not only to enrolled full-time students, but also to all other persons residing on campus, attending classes, or connected with the institute, including members of the students’ families, alumni, as well as all staff.
