“Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs…” (Acts 2:22)
Accredited comes from the same root word as credible (to believe or trust). Accreditation, therefore, acknowledges an institution’s credibility-its believability. Although some might see an accrediting agency as giving credibility to an institution, in actuality, the process of accreditation ascertains and acknowledges the institution’s credibility by providing external witnesses.
The concept of external witnesses has always been a biblical principle for credibility. Jesus said: “If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid…” (John 5:31).
The International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA) accreditation process has several steps that provide for a firsthand witness and validation of the institution’s credibility, and adheres to the biblical principle that “in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established” (2 Cor. 13:16).
Accreditation is as much a process as it is a result, and in the process of becoming, institutions find help, encouragement, and a maturing into the kind of school that God called them to be. This cooperative effort among like-minded institutions exemplifies the biblical accounts of the Body of Christ as it functions and works together to become strong and mutually beneficial under the headship of Christ (Rom. 12; 1 Cor. 12; Eph. 4).
The accreditation process has been developed to provide standards and procedures whereby an institution can establish its credibility before witnesses. Although the basic approach to understanding the whole of the institution is by evaluating its parts, it is inherent in the purpose of accreditation that an institution be finally evaluated on its totality by asking the question: Is this institution fulfilling its God-given call (purpose), and is it doing it with integrity and excellence?
CCA has been accredited with ICAA since 1994
