The Christian Degree Programs of Life Christian University are designed to equip students to follow the Lord in the work of the ministry. For this reason, we have chosen to be accredited through the Accrediting Commission International (ACT) “U.S.A.”, the world’s largest non-governmental school accrediting association. ACT is the accrediting authority for thousands of students in hundreds of schools in 9 countries on 5 continents, and operates in 35 states within the USA (including Washington, D.C.). Specializing in seminaries and Bible colleges, ACT is an independent accrediting agency that exists to help the religious world obtain accreditation that is not government affiliated. All ACT member schools accept credits from other member schools, if the credits apply to their programs. We have chosen not to seek governmental school accreditation offered by the U.S. Department of Education or a regional accrediting association because we believe we should not allow secular institutions to dictate the qualifications for instructors or the programs for a spirit-filled ministerial degree.
As a Christian University, LCU offers academic programs that are specifically designed to equip students who feel the call of God on their lives and wish to build a ministerial career or to further their Christian education. It is not for persons intending to build secular careers.
This form of ministry accreditation is not recognized by the United States Department of Education, but is recognized by most churches, ministry institutions, and ministry organizations.
