Freelandia Bible College & Seminary

Purpose

Freelandia is deeply committed to providing quality Bible college and seminary programs that are distincly Biblical and spiritual. If you cannot go away to a Bible institute, college or seminary these programs are bought to your home. Our programs prepare pastors, teachers, evangelists and others for effective discipleship in obedience to 2 Tim 2:15 and Eph 4:11-16.

Financial Policy

Freelandia alone offers its degree training programs entirely on a tuition free, contribution basis. The value of this tuition free scholarship is no less that $3000 but for all the benefits there is no charge. Our tuition free policy is maintained that all who qualify may receive a Bible college and seminary training second to none regardless of financial or geographic circumstances. Freelandia is a proven work of faith, a labor of love to the body of Christ, which was founded in 1969. The school is not endowed by any foundation, church group or anyone. It is supported entirely by prayer, hard work, and contributions from its students and friends. All gifts to Freelandia are tax deductible except student contributions are deductible only after taking into account the $3000 value and upward received from his/her tuition free scholarship.

World Outreach

Our school has produced thousands of alumni who minister Godís Word faithfully around the world. Many of our students come from poverty stricken nations of the third world where the Spirit of God is moving in a mighty way. A very large portion of the funds and faculty resources are now being directed in answering the call of these who are crying out to us for help. Our hundreds of overseas students have no money to send. We supply all of their training plus textboooks free of charge. No other Bible college or seminary does so much for these brethren. Freelandia alone offers this opportunity for the brethren overseas. Come, join us in this world-wide outreach. Your support is urgently needed!

Affiliation Ė Accreditation

Freelandia is denominationally unaffiliated. The faculty, administration and students are members of various denominational or independent churches. Our college and seminary serves those who are of like Biblical faith, who seek true spiritual growth and fruitfulness in their lives and service to Jesus Christ.

Freelandia Institute is chartered by the state of Minnesota and registered as a foreign corporation under the state of Virginia. It is exempt from regulations of the Council of Higher Education for the state of Virginia as a religious institution. We believe in the separation of church and state. Our programs are endorsed by the 1400 member Evangelical Church Alliance plus hundreds of Bible believing churches and pastors. Freelandia Bible College & Seminary does not have Secular Regional Accreditation.

Freelanida is a Chrisitan college that has elected not to pursue secular education approval. Obtaining secular approval would force Freelandia to teach secular courses with secular guidelines. Freelandiaís vision and focus is MINISTRY ONLY! Freelandia believes that the local church should not be under secular guidelines. Therefore, a Christian college that trains pastors for local churches should NOT be under secular guidelines. Seeking secular accreditation has not been found in Godís will or in Godís Word.

Doctrinal Statement

Freelandia is committed to the biblical doctrines of the Christian faith held throughout the centuries by Bible believing Christians; the infallibility of all the Scriptures as originally given by inspiration of God and perfectly preserved in the Authorized King James Version as the sole and final authority on all matters of faith, life and every area it touches; the unity of God in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the direct creation and fall of man as opposed to evolution; the Deity, virgin birth, sinlessness, vicarious death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; the total depravity of man; his absolute need of regeneration by the Holy Spirit; the all-sufficiency of Christís death for our salvation which is received by faith alone; the eternal security and the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit in every believer today; the true Church as Christís body and bride; the local church as His agency for spiritual edification and evangelism; the personal imminent, pre-millennial, pre-tribulational rapture of the Church, and the return of Christ in glory and power; and a literal eternal heaven and hell. The two big issues for which God will require a full accounting are: ďWhat have you done with My Book?! What have you done with My Son?!Ē (This doctrinal statement is subscribed to be the administration and all faculty members. The school is not charismatic or pentecostal.)
