Christian Life School of Theology - Where Knowledge comes to Life!

Christian Life School or Theology (CLST) is a school for the Church! Our primary commitment is to serve the local church and its leadership by enabling them to educate and train their members for Kingdom service.

CLST was established for the purpose of preparing ministerial, educational and other Christian leaders and workers to fulfill the scriptural mission of the Church.

Our product is a Christian man or woman educated and trained to be capable of serving Christ in an exemplary and effective manner in any walk of life in today’s world.

The school is a “college without walls” which has thousands of students throughout the United States, the Bahamas, and several other countries around the world, maturing into strong witnesses for Christ.

Our principal purpose is the establishment and maintenance of a program of training in and for the members and friends of the local churches served who are interested in in-depth studies in Bible, Counseling, Christian Development, Church Growth, and other related subjects. These studies are designed to prepare Christian workers for pastoral, counseling, evangelism, teaching, music, youth, children’s and other ministries. They are also designed to enrich one’s personal spiritual life and strengthen the local church’s ministry.


Christian Life School of Theology is an approved Continuing Education Unit (C. E. U.) provider for the Association of Christian Schools International.  ACSI is the largest provider of Christian Schools education at the elementary and secondary levels in the world with thousands of pre-school, elementary and secondary institutions.  CLST is approved to teach the teachers of these institutions and award them continuing education units for CLST courses.  CLST is also accredited by the Southern Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges in Atlanta, Georgia.  Although the CLST programme has been evaluated by SAABC, CLST is not a fully accredited institution, i.e., its accreditation is not recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.


All degrees conferred by Christian Life School of Theology are in a Bible Theology major. Courses are offered in seven divisions of study: Old Testament, New Testament, Biblical Theology, Practical Theology, Historical Theology, and Christian Counselling. It is required that courses from all six divisions be represented in a student’s Bachelor of Theology.  View Catalogue>>
