Opening Resolutions for EMHBA
Our main purpose is to help any and all who ask to find their spiritual truth, regardless of race, gender,
background or other church affiliations.
We believe in God, and respect the power of Prayer. We also respect and value those who do not believe
in God and those who get their answers through means other than prayer.
We believe that all men and women should be given the opportunity to become useful citizens, do meaningful
work, to encourage and help others find their purpose and achieve a healthy self-image.
We believe in allowing individual responsibility for spiritual growth.
We believe in religious freedom, as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others and is within the law.
We use teaching material from the Bible and variety of other sources, as wisdom is found in many places and
people each hear it in different way We respect the Constitution of all Canada and the governments of the
other peaceful nations in which some of our members reside.
- On the above-referenced date, Harvestime Bible Academy formed its board of directors.
- The board resolved that it would receive an Non Profit Corporation number, the number is 895170-5
- The board resolved that the Rev. Eric Gagnon would serve as Archbishop of the church and would be
authorized to act on its behalf.
- The board resolved that it would incorporate as a religious organization so we can grant degrees to our
members and students.
- The board resolved that the organism would perform the majority of its ministerial tasks through its presence
on the world wide web.
- The board resolved to use the main domain name of www.bible-academy.org, but would also purchase related
domain names for the use of the organism.
- The board authorized the creation of the website which will include guest sermons from the congregation,
teaching discourses on a variety of subjects, frequently asked questions about our classes and about as
many other denominations as we can determine, a church-related store, a forum for our ministers to enjoy
fellowship, a seminary for the instruction of our congregation and current ministers and other instructional
material as seems appropriate.
- The board resolves not to have any on-site Sunday school for the instruction of the young, as we feel it is the
job of the parents and guardians to instruct their young in a manner most appropriate to their personal beliefs.
We have resolved, however, that a wide-range Sunday school curriculum be made available to our
congregations as soon as possible.
- The board resolves to do a monthly new letter to keep our congregation informed and involved and further
resolves to send out special announcements as appropriate and necessary.
BASIC TRAINING COURSES CURRICULUM
STRATEGIES FOR SPIRITUAL HARVEST:
The initial call of Jesus Christ to men was to be spiritually reproductive: "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." His final
command, that of the Great Commission, also challenged followers to spiritual reproduction. Using the analogy of the natural
harvest, this course focuses on promises of spiritual harvest, things that prevent harvest, and keys to effective harvest. It
communicates the vision which the remainder of Institute training equips students to fulfill. FOUNDATIONS OF FAITH: This
course stresses the importance of proper spiritual foundations for life and ministry by focusing on foundations of the Christian

SUGGESTED STUDY STEPS
The curriculum of Harvestime International Institute is designed so that other reference books are not required to complete the
courses. You do not need a Bible concordance, dictionary, Bible handbook, atlas, or commentary, etc. If you have access to
these materials their use is encouraged, but they are not necessary to complete the training. You do need a King James version
of the Bible in your own language. Encourage students to set a special time for study each day and start with prayer to God
that the Holy Spirit will quicken their mind to learn God's truths. Train them to follow this
"Seven Step Study Plan":
STEP ONE - Course Survey: Read the module and course titles on the introductory page of the manual. Use the curriculum list
to see where the course fits into the pattern of Institute training. Read the chapter titles in the "Table Of Contents" of the manual.
They provide an overview of the study. Read the "Introduction" which introduces the subject matter. Read the "Course Objectives"
These are the main goals for your study of this course. After you complete the course survey you are ready to begin the first
chapter. For this and all other chapters use steps Two through Six.
STEP TWO - Chapter Survey: Read the "Objectives" of the chapter. These are the goals you should achieve by studying this
lesson. Read the "Key Verse" and memorize it for the "Self-Test." This verse summarizes the basic concept of the chapter.
Read the "Introduction" to the chapter. This introduces the content of the lesson. Go through the chapter and read the
headings (titles which are centered) and subheadings (titles which are even with the left hand margin). These introduce the
basic outline of the chapter.
STEP THREE - Chapter Study: Now you are ready to study the chapter in detail. Read through the entire chapter. Do not skip
any material. As you read, underline important points and write notes or questions in the margins. When you are told to look
up a reference in the Bible and read it, be sure to do so.
STEP FOUR - Chapter Review: Review the objectives at the beginning of the chapter. Have you met each of these goals in your
study? If not, study the materials again. Can you quote the "Key Verse" from memory? Review the chapter headings,
subheadings, and your own study notes and underlined portions.
STEP FIVE - Self-Test: Take the "Self-Test" for the chapter. When you finish, compare your answers with the correct answers
given at the back of the manual. Study again the material for any questions which you did not answer correctly.
STEP SIX - For Further Study: Do the assigned projects in the "For Further Study" section. These activities will develop
independent study habits and expand your knowledge of the subject matter.
STEP SEVEN - Course Review: Upon completion of all the chapters of the course, refer back to the major objectives given at
the beginning of the manual. Have you achieved these major objectives? If not, you may need to review certain portions of the
