ATBC is incorporated in the State of Florida as a Religious-Educational institution and the theological educational center of the Apostolic Messianic Fellowship. ATBC is not accredited or approved by the United States Department of Education, the State of Florida, or any other legislative established board, commission, or department.
CEAC is not a government accredited or approved accreditation commission. Secular accrediting systems usually grant regulatory oversight of the curriculum offered by the educational institutes accredited by it with standards set by individual State Education Commissions. Florida Statutes Chapter 246.216 recognizes the Constitutional liberty of ATBC to establish its own Religious school curriculum and its own standards of educational accreditation achievment. The purpose of CEAC is to fulfill the need for accreditation of Christian Schools, Bible Colleges, and Theological Seminaries who because of separation of State and Church desire accreditation from an nongovermental and nonsecular accreditation agency.
The primary reason ATBC and CEAC are not government approved and will not seek such, is because of the separation of State and Church. It is the consensus of the majority of private religious schools, colleges, and universities, that the government has no business in licensing, accrediting, and or in any manner approving one religious belief above another or mandating educational programs that are used for Churches or religious organizations. Therefore, it is the Constitutional liberty of each religious group to establish and to create its own system of religious education and its own accrediting requirements.
