IACEA Member Benefits
IACEA is not a traditional accreditation body. IACEA is an INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY ASSOCIATION fulfilling the need for a Christian alternative to secular accreditation, through a process of educational evaluation leading to theological accreditation.
All approved IACEA member institutions in good standing, are allowed to display the pre-approved statement of their achievement of recognized educational higher standards on the ACCREDITATION page of their institution's website. Furthermore, such institutions can use, promote, advertise and place our IACEA Logo along with the pre-approved statement regarding your institution's IACEA recognition in fulfillment of higher standards of educational and institutional excellence through IACEA educational evaluation.
Both the pre-approved statement and the IACEA Logo are displayed on this page as a benefit to IACEA members. Members may copy and paste the Logo and pre-approved statement into your website for viewing by potential students.
*If your institution has received the IACEA acceptance document by e-mail and you have completed your membership and made the initial membership payment, you may display these items on your institution's website immediately.
*As a further benefit, you can reduce the size of your certificate document and then copy and paste it into your website for a display to all potential students as well.
Certificate of Membership and Theological Accreditation
All approved IACEA member institutions are awarded an IACEA professional certificate of theological accreditation as an IACEA member in good standing. The electronic IACEA accreditation certificate displays our IACEA Logo and seal as well as the signature of the IACEA Administrator. This is your third-party recognition and can also be displayed on your educational Institution's website on the designated accreditation page.

International Association for Christian Educational Accountability
<Your School Name Here> is accredited by The International Association for Christian Educational Accountability a Worldwide organization for Christian Theological accreditation with the goal of maintaining the highest educational standards for its member institutions. IACEA accreditation standards are maintained through ongoing evaluation, compliance, and accountability. IACEA supports the Biblical principle of separation of Church and state; See Mark.12:17; James. 4:4; II Corinthians. 6:14. To remain consistent with Biblical standards and not the popular liberal and secular positions, IACEA has elected not to seek endorsement by either the EAES or COPA, CHEA, etc. which are all governmentally influenced accrediting organizations. IACEA is a rapidly growing and respected network of over 500 schools on the cutting edge of Christ-centered, Biblical education.
IACEA is an international membership association of hundreds of Christian educational institutions. Members must pass a rigorous evaluation process, leading to theological accreditation for their educational programs in accordance with Christian educational standards and institutional integrity through initial and ongoing evaluations. All IACEA member institutions are enabled to demonstrate educational accountability to the Christian educational community. This accountability is demonstrated through documented evidence of compliance with IACEA standards of structure, governance, material resources, policies, faculty, and curriculum. Further information concerning our process of evaluation leading to Christian educational accreditation may be obtained by visiting IACEA at: www.IACEA.info
