Ecclesiastic Endorsements

NAPTI is pleased to extend the benefits of Ecclesiastic Endorsement to all member schools and institutions. As an autocephalous accrediting agency, NAPTI has received recognition and endorsement from several denominational bodies, which affords universal acceptance and recognition amongst the various church and inter-church educational groups.

NAPTI currently holds valid and recognized endorsements through Anglican, Catholic, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, and Pentecostal and Presbyterian bodies. Additionally, NAPTI also holds recognition and endorsement through many other independent, autonomous and autocephalous religious organizations.

While denominational and dogmatic theology, policies and practices vary, NAPTI ensures that standard religious and academic regulations are valued and accepted by all member institutions. All member institutes, especially those of higher education are required to accept the credits, diplomas and degrees awarded by member institutions, leaving only the required “denominational” course work to be completed by the student.
