Christian Life School of Theology (CLST) has been granted religious exemption to grant degrees under the provision of the Post-secondary Educational Authorization Act, Georgia Code 20-3-100 et seq. CLST has, therefore, met the requirements for issuing Certificates indicating a special Theological focus, a Diploma of Theology, and Degrees ranging from an Associate of Theology through a Doctor of Theology.
Christian Life School of theology (CLST) is a unique religious exempt Theological School offering various programs of study in Theology. We are not accredited, nor will we seek accreditation unless it allows us the ability to operate in a manner free from outside control. We believe this stance is the only one that will allow us to remain open to the leading of the Holy Spirit while exercising our religious liberties.
We desire to continue in our independent standing so as not to compromise the integrity of the vision or direction the Lord has given to the leadership of CLST. Further, we believe the credibility of CLST is not in accreditation, but in the fruitfulness and surrendered lives of the students who have attended our courses.
"Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others, epistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you? You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart." (2 Cor. 3:1-3)
Christian Life School of Theology is known worldwide for its excellence as a School of Theology. Our graduates have successfully transferred our units to many Christian colleges around the country. If you have specific questions about the transferability of CLST coursework, contact the registrar's Office of the institution you desire to attend.
CLST is a member of the Association of Christian Schools, International (ACSI), and our curriculum has been approved for awarding continuing Education Units (CEUs). This means that CLST courses are recognized by public and private schools as meeting their teachers' continuing education requirements.
