The Initiators Christian University offers accredited courses, recognized by the National Bible College Association (NBCA). NBCA is authorized to confer certificates, associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. It is an evangelical, faith-based accrediting agency exclusively serving private Christian institutions. NBCA grants accreditation following rigorous inspection and approval of the institutions' programs, operations, and integrity. This accreditation extends internationally, surpassing national boundaries.

NBCA upholds the principle of the separation of church and state in its accreditation process and sets standards that align with scriptural principles in the realm of education. This ensures that the institutions it accredits maintain a strong faith-based foundation while providing quality education.


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 a school’s course offerings and procedures by a group of its peers to certify that that school is meeting its own stated objectives and offering its students the education it promises them. What ordination is to a minister; accreditation is to a school.
