Courses completed through the West Texas Bible Institute that are required by the Assemblies of God for credentials meet the educational requirements of the General Council for the respective level of credential. Completion of the courses, however, does not guarantee that a ministry credential will be granted, or that preferential treatment will be given to those completing the required ministerial training courses through the West Texas Bible Institute. The credentialing of ministers is a process separate from completion of the educational requirements.

WTBI is a non-accredited Bible institute. While endorsed by the Executive Presbytery of the General Council of the Assemblies of God for ministerial training, courses completed through the school do not automatically qualify for college credit.
