Tabernacle Bible College & Seminary is accredited through Transworld Accrediting Commission International.

Transworld Accrediting Commission

Transworld Accrediting Commission is an international, non-governmental, educational accrediting body, federally recognized as a non-profit church organization. Transworld accredits and assists Theological Schools, Seminaries, Universities, Colleges and Programs throughout the world. 

At Tabernacle Bible College & Seminary, we are proud to stand alongside our peers in affirming the importance of non-governmental accreditation for churches and Christian institutions. We understand that governmentally recognized and accredited organizations can be subject to external pressure which may not necessarily reflect their own values or beliefs. That is why at TBCS, we have chosen Transworld Accrediting Commission as our Church-based body of accreditation – an association that allows us autonomy under God’s authority rather than control by any outside entity.


“Non-governmental accrediting such as Transworld Accrediting Commission International based in California, continues to grow in popularity among churches and ministries seeking an alternative route to validate their educational institution’s academic and biblical standards. Many of these Bible and ministry schools have partnered with and been accepted by major institutions throughout the U.S. that are accredited regionally or otherwise. Christian leaders such as Rodney Howard-Browne, Jentezen Franklin, Bayless Conley, Frederick Price, Guillermo Maldonado and Ron Phillips have established institutions that now receive this type of accreditation.” by Paul Chappell.
