Are You Accredited?
Like many independent Bible Colleges we are a certificate program. We offer a certificate under religious exemption in the State of Florida. We are not regionally accredited. This is reflected in our degree program. We have zero Gen-Eds. Our degree program is specifically designed for students who want to prepare for ministry. We don’t think you should graduate with a mountain of debt or take courses that are irrelevant to your calling. The first universities in America were Seminaries, the first universities in the world were Christian and planted by the church. We see our program as a return to education as it was intended. Because we believe that our program should look the way it looks in terms of classes and content, we will never be “regionally accredited”. For us, it’s a matter of Philosophy.
