Affiliation and Accreditation


Biblical University. Christ-centered Community of Distance Learning


Biblical University has not sought recognition with The National Universities Commission of Nigeria NUC because it does not fall into the category of education to be regulated by NUC. Our education provides knowledge, skills and expertise for Christian scholars and church workers for the growth of the work of God. Our researches are based on the opt of improving quality theological education and Christian professional efficiency. Our purpose is clear: Biblical University exists to equipping servant leaders for global ministry and since 2008 Biblical University has fulfilled its mission of preparing men and women for ministry.

''PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT APPLICATION if you are seeking qualifications or credentials from NYSC approved and regulated institutions by NUC.''


The most important accreditation comes from our faithfulness to the Word of God and our obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit. We are confident that your Spirit-anointed ministry is what will accredit our programmes and open doors before you for a continually expanding ministry. "...Some people need to bring letters of recommendation with them or ask you to write letters of recommendation for them. But the only letter of recommendation we need is you yourselves! Your lives are a letter written in our hearts, and everyone can read it and recognize our good work among you. Clearly, you are a letter from Christ prepared by us. It is written not with pen and ink, but with the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on stone, but on human hearts." - 2 Corinthians 3:1-3
