The Japan Bible Institute Ministries offers the widest variety of religious degrees of any school its size in the U.S.A. However, we do not offer any secular “Arts” (which represents a wide scope of studies including such subjects as education, human relations, literature, etc.), or PhD degrees. A Ph.D. doesn’t have to do with the study of philosophy. It is awarded for study in many fields such as Communications, Management, Education, Human Relations, etc. and is not necessarily considered a religious degree, (But there are exceptions and the directors will decide on each degree.) so THE JAPAN BIBLE INSTITUE MINISTRIES.


If you are a Pastor, Evangelist, or Leader of an active Christian ministry, The Japan Bible Institute Ministries may be able to grant you an Honorary Doctorial Degree on the basis of I Timothy 5:17, if you meet the following qualifications:

Must be at least 10 years old.

Produce evidence that you are a licensed and ordained minister of the Gospel.

Verify that you have at least 10 years of full-time or part-time ministerial experience.

Prepare a TYPED one-page summary or resume of your work for the Lord.

Secure the endorsements of two other licensed or ordained ministers or other prominent Church leaders.

Make a $315 contribution to the furtherance of The Japan Bible Institute.

There is a discount for two Honorary Doctorial Degrees for a Married Couple.

You may request an application by E-Mail attachment.

Transferring credits is absolutely free. You can continue where you left off or purchased the degree you earned.

Some of the things we offer:

1.Fast Track courses for those who never received Degrees or Accreditation for their service. Many Independent Missionaries and Denominations fall into this category.

2.Transfer (for free) or receive the same level Degree’s you earned at other Schools.

3.Honorary Degrees for those who have done the work and deserve the Honor. ( These read and look the same as all degrees with no mention of Honorary Degree.)

4.Study our curriculum but have the freedom to add or subtract different books etc.  

5.Earned Degrees for those who have studied and served the King. (all degrees look exactly the same.)

6.We all know God’s Word Reigns Supreme but at times a Degree can open New Doors.

Graduations put togeather by Churches and schools. Graduations.


The Japan Bible Institute is willing to accept the credits you have earned from other legitimate Christian Schools whether they are accredited or not, as long as they teach the Bible

We have accepted transfer students from Rhema, Oral Roberts University, International Seminary, Logo Bible College, Richmond Virginia Seminary.  Boston University School of Social Work, New Hampshire College, Roxbury Community College, State University of New York, Orange County Community College, etc. etc. etc.

Likewise, The Japan Bible Institute credits have been acceptable at many other good schools, but whether a PARTICULAR school or agency will accept our credits and/or degrees is quite unpredictable. We cannot be responsible for the decisions and policies of others. It’s a very subjective issue depending upon many circumstances. But I believe you will find most similar schools will accept transfer from The Japan Bible Institute.

If you plan to apply for some state licensing or a faculty position at a particular educational institution, it would be best to make inquiry as to the requirements of that agency or school at which you wish your education to be recognized. At this time, a degree in counseling from The Japan Bible Institute will not allow you to set up a formal practice as a licensed professional counselor and charge fees for your services. To deal with stress, depression, anxiety, panic, phobias, and all kinds of sexual disorders for pay requires a State license.


The Japan Bible Institute is formally organized with a Board of Directors and Articles of Organization, Constitution, and By-Laws. We are affiliated with the Full Gospel of Christ Fellowship, Inc. In accordance with Rom.13:1-7, (sanctioning Human Government), The Japan Bible Institute has properly contacted the Japan Educational Ministries who, because our offerings are entirely religious, has granted us permission to carry on our activities of granting religious degrees.

Japan Bible Institute believes The Holy Scriptures.

The Holy Scriptures are the only sufficient, certain, and infallible standard of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience.1  The light of nature and the works of creation and providence so clearly demonstrate the goodness, wisdom, and power of God that people are left without excuse; however, these demonstrations are not sufficient to give the knowledge of God and his will that is necessary for salvation.2 Therefore, the Lord was pleased at different times and in various ways to reveal himself and to declare his will to his church.3  To preserve and propagate the truth better and to establish and comfort the church with greater certainty against the corruption of the flesh and the malice of Satan and the world, the Lord put this revelation completely in writing. Therefore, the Holy Scriptures are absolutely necessary, because God’s former ways of revealing his will to his people have now ceased.

12 Timothy 3:15–17; Isaiah 8:20; Luke 16:29, 31; Ephesians 2:20. 2Romans 1:19–21; Romans 2:14,15; Psalm 19:1–3. 3Hebrews 1:1. 4Proverbs 22:19–21; Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:19, 20.

The whole counsel of God concerning everything essential for his own glory and man’s salvation, faith, and life is either explicitly stated or by necessary inference contained in the Holy Scriptures. Nothing is ever to be added to the Scriptures, either by new revelation of the Spirit or by human traditions.

Nevertheless, we acknowledge that the inward illumination of the Spirit of God is necessary for a saving understanding of what is revealed in the Word.10 We recognize that some circumstances concerning the worship of God and government of the church are common to human actions and organizations and are to be ordered by the light of nature and Christian wisdom, following the general rules of the Word, which must always be observed.11
