                                     HISTORY

Realizing a Biblical responsibility to educate those who are already pastors of small
churches or those financially unable to attend other schools because of family or other
needs, a group of ministers met in the spring of 1979 to discuss starting a Seminary,
Institute, or Bible School. After much prayer, a correspondence school to be supported by
local pastors as needed was established. Leading this effort were three pastors, Clifton
Drawdy, Don Drawdy, and Ron Drawdy whose father, Reverend Roy Drawdy, had been a
Southern Baptist pastor for more than 40 years.
Once the catalogs were mailed, our school began growing rapidly by reaching out to help
those needing the skills for ministry. In 1994, the President, Ron Drawdy chartered the
school and registered it in the State of Georgia. At that time under the umbrella of the
Second Baptist Church Thomson, Georgia the school was incorporated as Southern Bible
Institute and Seminary. Soon after being incorporated, three acres of land including a
house located at 689 Howard Road Thomson, Georgia, was purchased In1999, a new
location was secured by obtaining ten acres of land that included ten thousand square feet
of buildings at 4405 Washington Road, Thomson, Georgia. In 2003, Southern Bible
Institute And Seminary was relocated to our present location 802 Greene Street, Augusta,
Georgia. This location is an important landmark of Southern Baptists. It is the
BIRTHPLACE of the Southern Baptist Convention. Now, not only does Southern Bible
Institute and Seminary continue to reach those in correspondence studies, students enroll
each semester to take full-time, instructor-lead classes in our newly renovated classrooms
at our main campus in Augusta, Georgia.
From our small beginnings to now, Southern Bible Institute and Seminary has been
instrumental in training and equipping saints of many walks of life. With a home base in
Augusta, Georgia, Southern Bible Institute and Seminary now have extensions in the
United States as well as in our countries. The Southern Bible Institute and Seminary
Advisory Board is comprised of many local pastors and other church laymen who believe
in our confession of faith, ―Jesus is Lord, Jesus died for our sin according to the
Scriptures, was buried, rose on the third day, and is now seated at the right hand of God to
make intersession for us.‖ As a licensed, chartered, incorporated and Christian accredited
institution with a determination to teach the Biblical truths of the Word of God, we at
Southern Bible Institute and Seminary covet your prayers and support.
With the support of our alumni and community churches, we continue to experience
growth each month as new students register with a hunger of God‘s Word. Those alumni
that pastor in local churches make opportunities available for the ministerial students to
gain experience by preaching, teaching and sharing their testimony. Seminary graduation
ceremonies are hosted by Southern Bible Institute and Seminary and held at the main
campus in Augusta, Georgia.

              Brief History of This Sight in Which the Seminary Meets

In 1817, eighteen Christians decided to band together into what was known as the Baptist
Praying Society. They drew up a covenant and began proceedings to become a constituted
church. Land was secured on Greene Street in Augusta, Georgia and plans to build began. A
new church was dedicated on May 6, 1821. This congregation became the First Baptist
Church.

In 1845, facing issues of slavery and foreign missions, the national convention split which
resulted in a called convention to be held here on this site, the Southern Baptist Convention
was born.

In 1899, the church congregation voted to rebuild the sanctuary, designed similar to the
Church of Madeleine in Paris, and dedicated the building in the year of 1902.

In 1967, this historic site hosted its sesquicentennial celebration, a weeklong event featuring a
cantata, pageantry and a service of consecration by the Reverend, Dr. Billy Graham.

In 1975, the congregation moved to another site in Augusta.

A non-profit foundation, Southern Baptist Birthplace, Inc. was formed to preserve this historic
structure.

A small plot of land was given to the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist
Convention upon which an identification marker was erected in 1984.

In 2003, Southern Bible Institute and Seminary began holding classes in this building.
Today, this building with all its great history has become home for Southern Bible Institute
and Seminary.

                                 Dr. Ronald E. Drawdy

In these last days, it is imperative that men and women who have been called by God into
full-time Christian service, be prepared properly by using all of the advantages and
resources at their disposal, in order to be prepared to meet the challenges of the world.
The administration of Southern Bible Institute and Seminary believes that two of the
greatest advantages available to God‘s people are the presence and power of God the Holy
Spirit and the Word of God. We believe God is emphatic when He says in His Word to
―Study to show thyself approved unto God a workman that needed not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.‖
(II Timothy 2:15 KJV )
Southern Bible Institute and Seminary purposes to train students in and for evangelical
Christian ministry. Race, class and nationality offer no barrier. Furthermore, students
from various evangelical denominations may enjoy academic freedom and Christian
fellowship.
All degrees of Southern Bible Institute and Seminary are of an ecclesiastical nature, and
whether granted or conferred, are in the restricted area of religion, with the special
purpose of preparing persons to work in the area of religion, whether educational or
ministerial; and are not designed to be used in general academic circles.
We ask for your prayers and welcome your calls or letters. We at Southern Bible Institute
and Seminary serve our Lord by serving you in His name.


                          Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

                                           4
                                 DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

 I. The Scriptures:

         II Timothy 3:16 – ―All Scripture is given by inspiration of God…‖
         II Peter 1:20 – ―…no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.‖
     We believe that through the providence of God, the Scriptures have been preserved and
     are supreme, final and adequate in authority. (Matthew 22:29; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation
     22:2-19)
II. God:

         Ephesians 4:6 – ―One God and Father of all…‖
         Titus 1:2 – ―…God, that cannot lie…‖
     We believe in only one true and living God: infinite, eternal, unchangeable, triune in
     nature (The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit), and yet not three Gods. (Acts 17:24-
     29; Romans 1:20)
III. Jesus Christ:

         Matthew 1:21 – ―…and thou shalt call his name Jesus…‖
         Acts 4:12 – ―…for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby
         we must be saved.‖
     We believe Jesus shed His blood on Calvary as a vicarious substitute, died, was buried,
     rose again bodily and ascended to be with the Father according to the Scriptures.
     (Matthew 1:18; John 19:20; Acts 2:32; Romans 10:9; Hebrews 12:2)
IV. Holy Spirit:

        (John 15:26; John 16:8; Romans 8:11 & 26; II Corinthians 3:6; 1 Peter 1:21;
            Revelations 22:17)
        Romans 8:9 – ―... if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.‖
        I Corinthians 12:13 – ―For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…‖
        Ephesians 4:4 – ―There is one body, and one Spirit…‖
     We believe the Holy Spirit is the chief agent in the regeneration of a soul, the one who
     convicts of sin, and the chief comforter of the believer.
V. Man:

        (Proverbs 2:2; Matthew 23:8; Acts 10:28; Romans 10:12; Galatians 3:28)
        John 3:3 – ―Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.‖
     We believe man is the direct creation of God. We believe in the fall of Adam, in the
     imputation of his sin to his posterity, in the corruption of human nature and the inability of
     man to recover himself from his lost state.




                                                 5
   V. Salvation:

          Only through Christ – (Luke 1:69; Luke 2:30; John 10:9; Acts 4:12; Acts 15:11;
          Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9; Hebrews 5:9; Hebrews 9:28; Romans 3:23; Romans
          5:8; Romans 6:23: Romans 10:9 & 10: Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8 & 9)
      We believe all who, in faith, receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again by the
      Holy Spirit and thus we become members of His body, the Church.
      Our definition of in Faith is that one must believe in the death, burial and resurrection of
      our Lord Jesus Christ – I Cor. 15:1-4; Rom. 10:9-10.

 VI. The Priesthood of the Believer:

        Romans 5:2 – ―…we have access by faith into this grace…‖
        Ephesians 2:18 – ―For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the
             Father.‖
        Ephesians 3:12 – ―In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith
             of him.
      We believe there is no mediator between God and man other than Jesus Christ.

VII. Satan:

          (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28: 1-19)
          John 8:44 – ―…for he is a liar, and the father of it…‖
          Revelation 12:10 – ―…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused
          them before our God day and night.
          John 10:10 - ―The thief cometh not but cometh not but for to kill, steal and destroy…‖
VIII. Creation:

          Genesis 1:1 – ―In the beginning God created the heavens and earth.‖
          John 1:3 – ―All things were made by him;‖
          Colossians 1:16 ‗ ―For by him were all things created…and for him…‖
          Hebrews 11:3 – ―Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the
          word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.‖

                           Defining Accreditation

    How many times have you bought a book because it has some kind of award
connected with it—maybe the Newbery or a less-famous accolade - only to discover that
you were not as pleased with it as you had been with a book no one had really heard of?
Perhaps the Newbery committee that year had several people on it who were more
interested in message than in style. Thus you got a prize-winning book that told an
interesting story but did not fulfill all of your literary standards.
    Yes this article is about accreditation of elementary and secondary schools not literary
prizes. But the analogy raises questions that apply in both realms: Who chooses what is
approved? Where does the authority for the decision rest?
    In a sense, school-accrediting associations are like literary-prize committees. They are
composed of professionals in the field (usually these people are nominated from member
institutions and then selected for assignments based on background and experience).
Accrediting associations also have certain published standards that they judge by.
    Like literary committees, accrediting associations are private, nongovernmental
groups. Their authority exists in the agreement of all the members (and of all who submit
to them for approval) that their approval has value. Membership in accrediting
associations is entirely voluntarily, as is applications for approval.
    The government, on both state and federal levels, does sometimes use accrediting
association‘s approval as a gatekeeper. No accreditation from a recognized agency? No
eligibility, then, to apply for a certain program or grant. But a lack of approval from an
accrediting association cannot close down a school or force it to change its policies.
    Accreditation associations do not accredit textbook companies. There are no
accrediting texts that have the nod from adopting agencies, but there is no such thing as an
―accredited curriculum.‖
    Schools may not be accredited or several reasons. Of course, a school may not meet
those standards of the associations doing the evaluation. Or it may be a new school - too
new to be evaluated effectively. Or it may be that for doctrinal or philosophical reasons,
the school does not ask for accreditation.
    Thus not being accredited - that is, not evaluation and approved by a private
association - does not necessarily mean that the school is below standard. And being
accredited does not mean that a school is better than a well-run unaccredited one. It
means that a school, or a certain period of time, is deemed by an association to have met
the academic standards set by that association.
    And so we are back to the analogy. Any evaluating agency - whether literary or
academic - is as good as its predetermined standards and its consultants‘ ability to
interpret and uphold those standards.
    The goal of accrediting associations is to hold to account schools and administration.
They hope to raise the bar for all their members. To do that, they use a blend of
formalized peer pressure and the classroom grading scale. And no one doubt that
standards help keep schools honest.



                                           9
   For approval in an association, a school must abide by the rules of the association.
And while Christian accrediting associations are far more trustworthy and qualified than
non-Christian ones for judging Christian schools, some administrations still prefer not to
apply for accreditation and thus keep their option of deciding in all details how their
schools will operate.
   Accreditation is not failsafe. Less than stellar schools may pass here and there and
very good schools may not apply for approval. And while associations may uphold
generally agreed-upon standards, really strong parent-teacher associations might just have
more influence than an accrediting association on how well a school is run.
    So parents looking at schools for their children (and teachers considering where to
work and administrators thinking about applying for school accreditation) have the option
of the shorthand that accreditation offers. And they may want to do their own evaluation
of the school accredited or unaccredited.
     The Newberry committee can give its opinion of the best book of any given year. But
it is, finally, up to the reader to decide for himself what he thinks of the work.

                                    ACCREDITATION

   Southern Bible Institute and Seminary holds full accreditation with the National
Association of Academic Accreditation (NAAA), and is a recognized member of the
Association of Christian School International (ACSI).
Accreditation is primarily designed for accountability to:
1. Certify that an institution has met the established standards of excellence.
2. Assist prospective students in identifying reputable instructions, which offer degree
   programs that will meet their needs and goals.
3. Allow instructions to evaluate the acceptability of transfer credits into their own
   curricula programs.

   Southern Bible Institute and Seminary, while rooted in the doctrinal beliefs of the
Southern Baptist churches, has enjoyed a wide acceptance of credits across
denominational boundaries.
   Southern Bible Institute and Seminary graduates may be found serving as authors,
administrators, counselors, evangelists, pastors, principals, mental health workers, hospital
chaplains, and private school teachers.
    Transferability of credits earned at Southern Bible Institute and Seminary and
transferred to another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution.




                                              10
        Credits and/or degrees earned from colleges in the State of Georgia, which are
    licensed by the State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities do not automatically
    qualify the holder for teaching certification nor do they qualify them to participate in
    professional licensing examinations or practices. Any person interested in obtaining a
    teaching certificate or practicing a regulate profession should contact the appropriate
    agency in his/her field of interest.

                               DENOMINATIONAL AFFILIATION

    Southern Bible Institute and Seminary is committed to the doctrinal beliefs of the
    Southern Baptist churches, missions and evangelic programs. However, the right of each
    student to attend or to affiliate with another evangelical denomination of his choice under
    God is respected.
Southern Bible Institute and Seminary is under the ministry of Southern Bible Church, a non-profit religious
organization.

                            STUDENT CLASSIFICATION
   All Southern Bible Institute and Seminary students are classified ‗as follows:
   A Full Time:
   A student taking 12-15 hours or more per semester (4 -5 courses).
   Part Time:
   A student taking less than 12 hours per semester (under 4 courses). This is considered the
   minimum load.

The total required credits for classifying students by grade level are as follows:

 00-29                 credit hours   freshman
 30-59                 credit hours   sophomore
 60-89                 credit hours   Junior
 90-119                credit hours   Senior
 120+                  credit hours   Graduate

   The Southern Bible Institute and Seminary school year is divided into four (4) semesters:
   August through mid-October is listed as the summer semester; mid-October through
   December is listed as the fall semester; January through March is listed as the winter
   semester; April through June is listed as the spring semester.
   There is no penalty for an accelerated pace. A student may complete his/her degree as
   quickly as his/her life situation permits. Typically, however, it will take a student at least
   two (2) years to meet the requirements for any given course of study due to the residency
   requirements.




                                               14
   TRANSFER OF CREDIT
   Southern Bible Institute and Seminary employs a ―firm but flexible‖ policy when
   accepting transferred credits from other institutions of higher learning. We realize that
   there are many avenues that may be taken by individuals seeking to increase their
   knowledge and study of the Word of God. For this reason, whenever possible, Southern
   Bible Institute and Seminary allows for the transfer of credit for the benefit of the
   individual student, while attempting to maintain that the transferred credit meets the
   academic and doctrinal standards of Southern Bible Institute and Seminary.
   In general, a student transferring to Southern Bible Institute and Seminary in the Bachelor
   degree program may transfer credit for work which is a ―C‖ or better. Students entering in
   the Master degree program may only transfer those grades that are a ―B‖ or better. No
   transfer credit will be allowed for the Doctorate degree programs.
   In addition to the minimum grade requirement on transfer work, each course to be
   transferred must apply to the student‘s area of emphasis as indicated on his program status
   sheet.
   In addition to college transcripts, credit will be accepted in the Associate and Bachelor
   programs as follows:
Up to (3) semester hours for any proficiency test passed.
Up to (6) semester hours for each year spent in active military duty.
Up to (3) semester hours for each documented seminary attended.
Up to (6) semester hours for each year of experience in the following fields:
   Ministry (Pastoral duties)
   Christian Education (Teaching in an Accredited Christian school)
   Music (Minister of Music)
   Religious Education (Minister of Education or Youth)
Up to (3) semester hours for each documented study course completed.
Up to (15) semester hours of electives in any field of study.

Typically, transferred credits may be used to meet 25% of degree requirements. Life/work
experience may be used to meet 25% of degree requirements. However, transferred credit
and/or credit for life/work experience may not exceed thirty (30)- hours and may only fulfill
50% of the degree requirements. As a general rule, a minimum of thirty (30) semester hours
must be earned at Southern Bible Institute and Seminary or an extension of Southern Bible
Institute whenever possible unless authorized by the Southern Bible Institute and Seminary
Administration. For further clarification of degree requirements, please refer to sections
dealing with individual degree programs found in this catalog or contact the Administrative
Offices.
If a student currently holds a Bachelor or Master degree and desires to upgrade that degree to
a seminary degree, he must take a minimum of thirty (30)- hours, ten (10) courses, in the area
of emphasis of the desired seminary degree.




                                              15
DISMISSAL & RE-ADMISSION POLICIES
 Southern Bible Institute reserves the right to place on probation, suspend or dismiss a
 student whose academic standing, financial obligations, progress or conduct is not deemed
 as satisfactory by the administration. The following students are removed from active
 status and are required to submit a new application for admission:
 Any external student who does not submit at least one course annually.
 Any student who does not complete his program within the specified length of time.

 Please Note: Any previous balance owed to Southern Bible Institute and Seminary must
 be paid before a student will be able to make application for re-activation. Also, a student
 submitting an application for re-activation will re-enter his program at the tuition rate,
 with degree requirements in effect at the time of his re-activation.




                                   GRADUATION
