Thank you for visiting our site. LBU is unapologetically Christian. We believe the Bible, God’s inspired Word, is truth, and that is why it is the very foundation of our entire curriculum. We are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all we do as we seek to honor the Lord. It is not only our desire that every graduate of LBU be prepared professionally and academically for their life’s work, but also that they leave LBU with a greater passion to love and serve God. We pray that you would consider becoming a part of our LBU family.

accreditation & Affiliations

Our mission is, and always has been to train people for ministry.  Because of the unique education we provide, and our strong belief in the separation of powers, we have not invited government oversight of our programs. Even though we are not accredited, we uphold high standards of academic integrity. In fact, several accredited schools have accepted our credits and our graduates’ degrees.

LBU is recognized by the Louisiana Board of Regents to grant degrees and is reviewed annually.
