The Ekklesia Epignostika Seminary complies with the laws in Arizona for the granting of religious degrees. Arizona's statutes permit non-profit organizations with IRS 501 (c) 3 status to grant religious degrees as part of a Clergy Training Program. The Seminary's religious degrees are thus exempt from accreditation.

We do not seek nor are we accredited by the U.S. Department of Education.

This, however, does not imply that the academic and spiritual work required to graduate from the Ekklesia Epignostika Seminary is easy. Ours is in fact one of the more rigorous curriculums in the Independent Sacramental Movement. That is why we are so widely respected.

There are Ekklesia Epignostika Seminary alumni in active ministry with credentials earned from their studies in all fifty (50) states, and on every continent with the exception of Antarctica.
