The Jesus Moment Bible Institute and Seminary (JMBIS) was founded in January 2014. The goal and purpose of Jesus Moment Bible Institute and Seminary (JMBIS) is to train and equip our students to achieve their purpose in the Kingdom of God. Our desire is to be able to provide this education for free to everyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of God, the Bible and the ministry into which they feel called. In order to provide a free college level education we are gathering together materials that have been made available for free by colleges, universities and ministries around the world. JMBIS can then organize and combine these courses into series of tracks so that we can award Associates and Bachelors degree for completed course work. We offer courses on Campus and also through our Online Bible Institute.
State of Florida Department of Education
In the United States of America, jurisdiction over degree-granting institutions rests with the individual state governments. Compliance with state regulations is the necessary condition for offering a legitimate, legal American degree. Jesus Moment Bible Institute and Seminary (JMBIS) grants degrees under the authority of the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities in compliance with Section 1005.06(1)(f), Florida Statutes. The state of Florida does not require regional or theological accreditation. Please Note: JMBIS as well as other Christian colleges are NOT required to be regulated by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE); therefore, JMBIS is not listed with the FLDOE as a ‘regulated’ institution. JMBIS has received approval (authorization) as of 2015 from the FLDOE that JMBIS is in compliance with the statutes of the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities to offer legitimate, legal American degrees.
JMBIS does not have a regional secular accreditation. If you are desiring to pursue a degree for secular employment, a degree with JMBIS may not be the right choice for you. JMBIS does not guarantee a job or ordination in any specific market or ministry. JMBIS is not listed at this time with a U.S. Department of Education-approved accreditation agency, and a JMBIS degree is NOT specifically suited for people pursuing secular jobs such as public school teachers, state university professors, state-licensed counselors or psychologists, among other vocations requiring state licensure.
