WHAT IS ACCREDITATION?

By definition, the word "accredit" means to authorize, endorse, and officially approve of. What ordination is to a minister, accreditation is to a school. Accreditation is a group process by which schools voluntarily agree to participate in a set of established standards in order to encourage quality education. Schools are not legally required to become accredited, but it is a very desirable standing. Accredited status means a school has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive examination to determine that it operates at a worthy level of performance.

WHAT IS THE (I.A.C.E ?)

The I.A.C.E is a nonprofit, tax-exempt Christian organization dedicated to making a significant contribution to the promotion of Christian education everywhere. We are governed by a Board of Directors, and Board of Advisory Board all of whom are reputable born-again Christians. The I.A.C.E was founded to:

Upgrade standards of scholarship among Christian educational institutions.

The I.A.C.E holds itself accountable to God, the Church and the laws of the land.

To continue to monitor compliance with set standards.

To award certificates of accreditation to deserving Biblical schools.

I.A.C.E is Endorsed by The CLC (Christian Leaders Connection)

The I.A.C.E is part of the Christian Leaders Connection the Board of Directors of the C.L.C. has formally announced its full recognition, endorsement, and approval of the I.A.C.E Unlike regional accrediting associations which are limited to one area, we were established as a multi-national association of Christian Educational Institutions. .

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE

There are secular education and there are religious education.
Government-Grants-Accreditation comes ONLY with compromise. These Agencies chargev exorbitant fees. - For regional, national and/or professional accreditation. Fees range from as little as $5,000 to as much as $100,000 .and they charge them YEAR AFTER YEAR to Maintain Accreditation.
GOVERNMENT ACCREDITATION: FIRST OF ALL, you need to understand what "Accreditation" really is: Accreditation is "Buying Status and Control

Becoming yoked with unbelievers" becoming unequally yoked together (the state has the upper hand) Christians as "Light" joining in association-fellowship-union with "Secular Darkness"

seeking worldly, anti-Christian approval; • seeking world, anti-Christian acceptance; • ALL FOR worldly accreditation and acclaim, • which brings worldly accolades and applause;

Is Accreditation being sought by colleges and their students so ALL OF THEM can Make More there not a Spiritual Law that "The LOVE of MONEY is the ROOT of ALL EVIL?

Secular schools seek secular education, and sacred schools receive sacred accreditation—each by their own peers. Religious institutions need no secular accreditation because they offer no secular degrees

Secular accreditation associations in turn are recognized by governmental agencies

Religious accrediting associations are recognized by the Church of Jesus Christ, which has no supreme central office on earth. Our authority is derived directly from Heaven.

BOGUS ACCREDITATION

Accrediting standards differ widely from agency to agency. Some are next to impossible to get into, and others don't check anything. Any so-called accrediting society that offers to accredit your school without knowing anything about your school is just trying to sell you an expensive piece of paper.

  • As there are bogus schools that sell Doctorate degrees, even so there are bogus accrediting agencies that will accept anyone who pays their fee. It is highly unethical for a Bible Institute to accredit itself. .
  • It is like a minister ordaining himself. But such worthless self-accreditation is exactly what most degree mills do.
  • They try to conceal the fact that their so-called school and so-called accrediting association is at the same place by offering no address for the accrediting association, which is why some accrediting associations are un-locatable.

Three Stages Of Accreditation

the Church has traditionally recognized three ranks of those called to the ministry: 1) Exhorter, 2) Licensed, And 3) Ordained; Even so, the accreditation process is identifiable in three distinct phases: 1) Applicant, 2) Associate, and 3) Accredited. But with the I.A.C.E you will not have to wait three to five years to get through the steps.
1. APPLICANT or PROVINCIAL STATUS: This means that a school has submitted an application with the fee, and we have acknowledged that the school is in existence. 2. ASSOCIATE or CANDIDATE STATUS: The interval between our examining your application and your receiving a Certificate of Accreditation. It may mean that you are working to meet a certain requirement to rise up to our standards or it might mean that you are awaiting an on-site visit and report approval, or that we are in the process of verifying the special evaluation reports. Hopefully this will be a relatively short period of time.
3. FULLY ACCREDITED MEMBER STATUS: This means that the on-site visit report has been approved, or the special evaluation reports have been verified and accepted, and that the I.A.C.E has concluded that you have met or exceeded the minimum standards set, and that your school have been awarded the Certificate of Accreditation. .
