                              DR JEAN MARC DESIRE

My name is Jean marc Desire, I am originally from Haiti . I was ordained in the ministry in March 1988 at BAPTIST BIBLE CHURCH in Elkton, Maryland. That church under the leadership of Dr. Tom Berry called and conducted my ordination service prior to my returning to Haiti in 1989 to lead this ministry as a national missionary with Baptist Evangelistic Missionary Association in Columbus, Ohio.

I am the chairman and Pastor in charge of the Evangelical Haitian Baptist Churches, Inc... which is a Mission work  founded  in Haiti   with a vision  of reaching Haiti with the Gospel of Jesus-Christ  through a ministry that meets  spiritual , medical , social and educational  needs .  Where there was once nothing but despair, a new community of believers is praising the Lord today, changed by the Gospel of Christ and leaving behind everything that held them in bondage.Today, our mission work in Haiti includes four churches, two preaching points  three Christian schools, a medical ministry, a Bible School and a Rescue Mission.

I hold a diploma in Broadcast engineering from Cleveland Institute of Electronics in Cleveland Ohio 1994. I have been ministering in Haiti since 1989, after seminary training in the USA at Word of Life New York in 1986, I earned a Bachelor in theology at Bethany Divinity College and Seminary in Alabama in 1994 and a Master of Ministry afterwards . I earned a Master of Divinity and a Doctorate of Ministry degree from  Luther Rice University in Lithonia Georgia.

 

ABOUT OUR BIBLE SCHOOL ( On site and Online)

 

Early in 1994 I developed a course in the area of EFFECTIVE CHRISTIAN  COMMUNICATION, and prepared a material of topical teaching around the subject  to meet the needs of our Christian workers and others . A Bible Institute for Christian workers was born and I had the responsibility among many other things to teach Old & New Testament Bible Survey  and Personal Evangelism  to the core group of that new work.



In the year 2008 the ministry Bible School started focusing on training pastors and I became the Founder and Dean of our Bible School in Haiti, with  the responsibility to teach , and improve the curriculum on a regular basis so as to prepare faithful workers to meet the spiritual needs of our community . 

 

The Center of Evangelical and Pastoral Theology  starts with  a two- year school of ministry that provides an Associate of Pastoral Theology  to every student that  earned 60 credit hours and a Bachelor of Theology to students that earn 120 credIt hours. 

The Centre de Theologie Evangelique et Pastorale  is a BIBLE SCHOOL  operating under the Mission organization THE EVANGELICAL HAITIAN BAPTIST CHURCHES , INC .  registered with the Department of Religious Affairs of Haiti  since 1968 and Incorporated in the State of Florida. USA . It is a certified member of Association of Independent Christian Colleges and Seminaries in Saint Charles Missouri , and ACCREDITING COMMISSION FOR BIBLICAL HIGHER EDUCATION  in  Houston Texas.

 

 Dr Jean marc Desire ,Director and Founder of the School is a missionary serving in Haiti since 1989 under BAPTIST EVANGELISTIC MISSIONARY ASSOCIATION IN Columbus , Ohio 



 

Paul wrote to Timothy :

“ And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also” ( 2 Tim 2:2) .

Afte all these years of ministry we do have proofs that  keep us convinced that it is by multiplying our leaders we can leave behind a legacy for the next generation that will need to do their part in the unfinished task of world evangelization.

Our School Centre de Theologie Evangelique et Pastorale is affiliated  with the mission Board : Baptist Evangelistic Missionary Association, Columbus, Ohio 43232

STATEMENTS OF FAITH OF

CENTRE DE THEOLOGIE EVANGELIQUE ET PASTORALE

 

Our beliefs:

We seek to establish our beliefs and practices on Biblical teachings. So we believe in the main doctrines of the reformation and of the biblical evangelical churches. In relation to some current theological positions, we do not teach research or individual practice of charismatic gifts. We believe in the rapture of the church before the tribulation and the return of the Lord before the Millennium.

While recognizing the important contribution of women in the Church in many other areas of the Lord's work, we do not believe that they are called to occupy the pastoral position.

This doctrinal statement does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.


The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men supernaturally inspired; that it has truth without any admixture of error for its matter and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

(A) By the Holy Bible we mean that collection of sixty-six books from Genesis to Revelation which, as originally written, is the true, pure, and preserved Word of God.

(B) By inspiration we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writings have ever been or ever will be inspired. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

God

We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons -the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit-equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26)

The Person and Work of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; II Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-8)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministries of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2)

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Person Who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 1:13-14)

We believe that He is the Divine Teacher Who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 1:17-18; 5:18; I John 2:20, 27)

We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowal of spiritual gifts to every believer. God uniquely uses evangelists, pastors, and teachers to equip believers in the assembly in order that they can do the work of the ministry. (Romans 12:3-8; I Corinthians 12:4-11, 28; Ephesians 4:7-12)

We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing, were temporary. We believe that speaking in tongues was never the common or necessary sign of the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit and that ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection, though God frequently chooses to answer the prayers of believers for physical healing. (I Corinthians 1:22; 13:8; 14:21-22)

The Fallen Nature of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and, that all men are sinners by birth and by choice, and, of themselves, utterly unable to remedy their lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12; 6:23 ; Ephesians 2:1-3; 4:17-19)

Salvation

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19), and that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process.

The Eternal Security and Assurance of Believers

We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5)

We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh. (Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11-15)

The Church

We believe that the local church, which is the body and the espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born again persons. (I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27)

We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. (Acts 14:27; 20:17, 28-32; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11)

We believe in the autonomy of the local church, free of any external authority or control. (Acts 13:1-4; 15:19-31; 20:28; Romans 16:1, 4; I Corinthians 3:9, 16; 5:4-7, 13; I Peter 5:1-4)

We recognize water baptism and the Lord’s Supper as the Scriptural ordinances of obedience for the church in this age. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:18; I Corinthians 11:23-26)

Separation

We believe that all the saved should live in a manner that does not bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; and that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded of God. (Romans 12:1-2; 14:13; II Corinthians 6:14-7:1; II Timothy 3:1-5; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11)

The Second Advent of Christ

We believe in that “blessed hope,” the personal, imminent return of Christ Who will rapture His Church prior to the seven-year tribulation period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return with His saints to establish His earthly Messianic Kingdom which was promised to the nation of Israel. (Psalm 89:3-4; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 14:4-11; I Thessalonians 1:10; 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10; 19:11-16; 20:1-6)

The Eternal State

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men—the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29;11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6, 12-13)

We believe that the souls of the redeemed are at death absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord. (Luke 23:43; II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 3:21; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:4-6)

We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain after death in conscious punishment and torment until the second resurrection when, with soul and body reunited, they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment and torment. (Matthew 25:41-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-26; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Revelation 20:11-15)

The Personality of Satan

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin, and the cause of the fall of man; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14:12-17; Matthew 4:2-11; 25:41; Revelation 20:10)

Creation

We believe in the Genesis account of creation and that it is to be accepted literally, not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after His own likeness; that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change of species, or developments through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms; that all animals and vegetable life were made directly; and that God’s established law was that they should bring forth only after their kind. (Genesis 1-2; Exodus 20:11)

Civil Government

We believe that God has ordained and created all authority consisting of three basic institutions: (1) the home, (2) the church, and (3) the state. Every person is subject to these authorities, but all (including the authorities themselves) are answerable to God and are governed by His Word.

God has given each institution specific Biblical responsibilities and has balanced those responsibilities with the understanding that no institution has the right to infringe upon the other. The home, the church, and the state are equal and sovereign in their respective Biblically assigned spheres of responsibility under God. (Romans 13:1-7; Ephesians 5:22-24; Hebrews 13:17; I Peter 2:13-14)

Unchaste Conduct

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate physical activity be engaged outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of perversion of God’s original intent for a physical relationship between a husband and wife is sinful. (Genesis 2:24; 19:5, 13; 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)

Abortion

We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living human being. (Job 3:16; Psalm 51:5; 139:14-16; Isaiah 44:24; 49:1, 5; Jeremiah 1:5, 20:15-18; Luke 1:44)

Missions

We believe that the command to give the Gospel to the world is clear and unmistakable and this commission was given to the churches. (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8, II Corinthians 5:20)

Giving

We believe that every Christian, as a steward of that portion of God’s wealth entrusted to him, is obligated to support his local church financially. We believe that God has established the tithe as a basis for giving, but that every Christian should also give other offerings sacrificially and cheerfully to the support of the church, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the Gospel. We believe that a Christian relinquishes all rights to direct the use of the tithe or offering once the gift has been made. (Genesis 14:20; Proverbs 3:9-10; Acts 4:34-37; I Corinthians 16:2; II Corinthians 9:6-7; Galatians 6:6;Ephesians 4:28; I Timothy 5:17-18; I John 3:17)


                                    Academic and Financial Policies

The Center for Evangelical and Pastoral Theology is a higher education school whose main mission is the education of church leaders in the Haitian evangelical community.

CETEPP exists to teach the scriptures in such a way that they can be presented effectively and passionately to the world in need. The Lord has a place in his service for each of his children. It is our joy to collaborate with local churches to make known the will of God, to form oneself in it and then to find a ministry adapted to his gifts and convictions.

We are also happy to welcome those who do not yet know their professional orientation, but who desire to approach God and become more useful in his service. The programs at CETEPP have three goals:

1) Deepen your biblical knowledge
2) Training in service
3) Develop your relationship with God

Other study possibilities:


Knowing that some people cannot attend on site classesfor professional, family or other reasons, CETEPP prepares audio-visual courses that can be taken either individually or in groups in their local church. We are also custodians of quality correspondence and online courses. Please contact us for currently available courses.

STUDENT LIFE

Course attendance and punctuality:

A student who arrives after the bell rings are considered late. A total of three late is considered an absence, and a 30-minute delay is considered an absence. A student who is absent for a total of 1/3 of the hours allocated to a module will resume the module. The teacher will impose the penalty which is a reduction of 2% of the final mark for each absence beyond the allocated limit. In the event of illness or force majeure, the absence will not be penalized.

Probation

A student who, during his studies, has not been able to maintain the minimum general average of 2 out of 4, or a C, will be placed on probation. Probation is a period during which a student is required to make additional efforts to raise the level of his or her GPA to a minimum of 2.0. This probation period cannot go beyond 3 modules.

Homework and exams

Examinations, theological papers, oral presentations etc. are an important part of the learning process.
These assignments must be carried out according to the schedule fixed by the professor. For any homework submitted late, the teacher deducts 5% of the student's grade for the first day of delay and an additional point for each subsequent day. After seven days the assignment will no longer be accepted. A student can take an exam again if his absence has been justified; the student who failed an exam will retake it after payment of a fine. Only extenuating circumstances can allow a student to be accepted for an examination at a later date.

Schedule of Classes,Use of the Library

The schedule of classes on site is Monday , Tuesday and Thursday from 5PM to 6 PM. All of the classes can be taken online as well. CETEPP has an on-site consultation library.

Personal appearance


Special attention is paid to the personal appearance of the students.

CETEPP calls on students to apply the following three principles in their clothing choices: you must live within your means; dress without ostentation but rather with modesty and discretion; finally, we must draw attention to Christ and not to his clothes. CETEPP students are asked not to be the cause of these scandals and to have in class an outfit that reflects the Christian character. Shirt and tie for men and decent outfit for women.A student who decides to close his file at CETEPP must complete the file closure form available at CETEPP management.
