Affiliations & Recognition

Messianic Life Institute (MLI) is an affiliate of Messianic Jewish Bible Institute (MJBI), and a ministry of Ahavat Yeshua, a Messianic Jewish Congregation located in the District of Columbia. MJBI is an internationally recognized school for training Messianic Jewish leaders, and Ahavat Yeshua is a local congregation in the Nation's Capital, and a member of Tikkun International and the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations.

MLI is a non-profit educational corporation that is recognized by the State of Florida as religiously exempt, and therefore able to grant degrees pertaining to religious studies. We are a relatively new school, and have thus far not made application for accreditation with any external accrediting body. For the foreseeable future, MLI will build its reputation through its performance, its faculty's reputation, and its various affiliations within the Messianic Jewish and Christian communities.

MLI's relative newness and current lack of accreditation should be carefully considered by students seeking matriculation for a degree or certificate, since recognition of MLI's courses by other schools, and transfer of its credits into other programs, cannot be guaranteed.
