We at the Evangelical Bible Seminary desire to offer the best Christian curriculum we can to our students. Therefore, the classes and titles may change, but we are confident that the overall content of the material will cover the subject matter needed for a well-rounded degree program.
Practical experience credits may be substituted for some courses, subject to review and approval of Officers of Administration, on an individual basis.)
Accreditation is the act of certifying that an educational institution maintains suitable standards; the granting of approval to an institution of learning by an official review board after the school has met certain requirements. Specifically, accreditation is the review of the school's course offerings and procedures by an outside group of its peers to certify that this particular school is meeting its own stated objectives and offering its student the education it promises them.
Transworld Accrediting Commission International is recognized as a non-profit church organization- not a secular school accrediting organization.
Government-recognized accreditation is not necessary for the religious vocations we are training people for which include biblical studies, Christian arts, Christian counseling, Christian leadership, divinity, ministry, evangelism, missionary, worship ministry, youth ministry, and theology. People can function and hold jobs in all of these professions without government-recognized accreditation.
Since accreditation is a review by your peers that ensures that you are offering a quality program and since the U.S. Department of Education is not a peer of EBCS, their approval is not necessary. Because we are a religious organization, we are exempt from their regulations. We are a quality educational institution that is recognized as operating legally and credibly for over 40 years. We are responsible for training and producing pastors and ministers that are now working in churches and church organizations all around the world. There are many schools that seek governmental approval so that they may receive government funds, however, at this time EBCS is not seeking government funds or approval
The standards in many of these government-recognized schools have done nothing but decline over the past years due to governmental influence. By being separated from the government we are free to teach God's word and keep our standards lined up with the Bible, not man.
