About the Central Institute of Theological Studies
The Central Institute of Theological Studies (CITS) was birthed in the summer of 2007.
CITS is a place for church leaders to be equipped, educated and experience the ministry that God has called them to.
CITS can be the place where men and women of all ages and denominational preferences can renew and pursue their call to ministry
in God’s Kingdom here on earth.
The goal of our instruction is not to create a doctrinal position in the student, but rather to equip them
with the theological tools that prepare them for a healthy productive ministry experience. We issue "Certificates of Study" to graduating students. These certificates are earned through
academic study at CITS and as a result of personal spiritual growth.
The Central Institute of Theological Studies (CITS)
is a non-prerequisite school. Students are only required to have obtained a high school diploma or a GED equivalent. The standard
of education given by our instructors is comparable to that of many other seminaries at a fraction of the cost of such
schools. Many Christian denominations are already accepting CITS credits toward their educational and ordination requirements.
Please let us know how we can assist you in receiving credit for your course work with your church, or denomination.
The word "accreditation" has held many meanings over the last several decades.
Educational accreditation is a certification by a recognized institution(s) that a particular education institution has voluntarily
undergone a comprehensive examination that has demonstrated that the educational institution does in fact meet the established
standards of the examiner. In effect, it is a promise that an institution will provide the quality of education it claims
to offer. Various accreditations assure the prospective student that the school is financial sound, and that it has a standard
course of study, and qualified instructors. The Central Institute of Theological Studies is not a nationally or regionally accrediterd institution
of higher learning, and is currently not pursuing such accreditation.
