NABBCS is an evangelical, faith based, not a US Government, accrediting agency.
US DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ACCREDITATION
Word Theological Seminary (WTS), as a new institution, is not at this time accredited by a US Department of Education recognized accrediting agency. The school will qualify for accreditation over the next several years. Although the ultimate objective is that students who are enrolled in our programs will graduate with an accredited degree, it is important for prospective students to recognize that degrees earned (or coursework completed) at Disciples of Grace prior to its regional accreditation may not be transferable to another Bible college or seminary program, nor may they be marketable in securing employment, outside of church ministry.
Many of our course descriptions closely match those of accredited Bible colleges and seminaries. WTS students will be well positioned to use portfolio equivalency to gain course credit and advanced standing at accredited colleges or seminaries that have a provision to grant portfolio based credit.
Word Theological Seminary programs are strictly designed for believers who desire to be equipped and trained for effective Christian ministry.
AUTHORIZATION TO GRANT DEGREES
Degree programs of study offered by WTS are exempt from the requirements for licensure under the provisions of the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities (SBICU). Exemption from licensure is not based upon any assessment of program quality under established licensing standards. Every other Bible College or seminary in the State offering legitimate degrees operates under the same statute. In accordance with the provision of the Florida Department of Education General Statues Section 1005.06(1)(f), Word Theological Seminary offers the following degrees: Associate of Ministry, Bachelor of Biblical Studies, Master of Divinity, Master of Christian Counseling, and Doctor of Theology.
The most important accreditation comes from our faithfulness to the Word of God and our obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit.We are confident that your Spirit-anointed ministry is what will accredit our programs and open doors before you for a continually expanding ministry.
...Some people need to bring letters of recommendation with them or ask you to write letters of recommendation for them. But the only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves! Your lives are a letter written in our hearts, and everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. Clearly, you are a letter from Christ prepared by us. It is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on stone, but on human hearts."
- 2 Corinthians 3:1-3
