Who We Are
True Hope Bible Institute is Biblically accredited by the World-Wide Accreditation Commission of Christian Educational Institutions.                       

The W.W.A.C. has accredited over 200 Christian Schools and Institutions worldwide and is growing steadily each year!  Accreditation with the W.W.A.C. is not a permanent award, so typically a school's accreditation with the WWAC must be renewed annually – thus the standards of schools must maintain the required quality standards if they desire to remain accredited with the WWAC.
The W.W.A.C. is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to making a significant contribution to the promotion of Christian education everywhere. The W.W.A.C. is governed by a Board of Directors, all of whom are reputable born-again Christians. The W.W.A.C. was founded to:
  • Upgrade standards of scholarship among evangelical educational institutions.
  • To award certificates of accreditation to deserving schools.
  • To continue to monitor compliance with set standards.

The W.W.A.C. specializes in Theological Seminaries, Christian Colleges, and Bible Institutes of all sizes, including both traditional and alternative programs. They are also concerned with helping any formal ministry teaching the Word of God in an on-going relationship between instructor and students, which may not fit into any denominational mold, to develop into a viable school.

The W.W.A.C. is part of the Full Gospel of Christ Fellowship, Inc. The Board of Directors of the F.G.C.F.I. has formally announced its full recognition, endorsement, and approval of the W.W.A.C.
The W.W.A.C. holds itself accountable to God, the Church, the laws of the land, and the general public. It is not governmentally connected and does not engage in partisan political activities. Unlike regional accrediting associations which are limited to one area, the W.W.A.C. was established as a multi-national association of Christian Educational Institutions.
