Statement on Accreditation

247528_210552018983935_1395389_nWe believe that our authority is derived directly from Heaven through the Word of God.

As part of the Body of Christ, we must first and always remain obedient to Him whom we serve and remain holy for His purpose of training and the equipping of saints.

  • Theological Seminaries should not be accredited by accrediting associations that are “recognized” by an agency of the federal government, because it is contrary to the Biblical principle of “Separation of Church and State,” indicated by Christ when He said “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and to God that which is God’s.” (Mark 12:17)
  • Christian educators should not go to the world of unbelievers for recognition and acknowledgment when 2 Corinthians 6:14 clearly tells us, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?”
  • A Christian educational institution securing accreditation from an association which is attached to a governmental agency is a scripturally condemned and unholy union as scripture again warns us, “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4)

Therefore,

Trinity Evangelical Christian University chooses not to seek secular / worldly accreditation or recognition of any kind from any of the national or privately operated regional accrediting agencies.

We will continue to remain at the forefront of biblical teaching that is powerful, life changing, Spirit filled, and relevant, in away that equips immediately.

Our degrees, professional certifications and ordinations are accepted worldwide by many denominations and countless independent Christian ministries, churches, services and employers.
With a positive record for quality graduates equipped and ready for the work they are called to for almost 20 years, our reputation and acceptance continues to grow.

And by the leading of the Holy Spirit, we will continue in His purpose as He has planned for us, forever His.

Glory to God the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it should be always! Amen.
