Admissions Requirements

Any born again Christian, male or female, is eligible to enroll in the Los Angeles Bible Training School. LABTS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin.

Concept of Ministry

We hold to precise biblical and theological convictions which prevail as the foundation and cornerstone of this institution.

In pastoral ministries, as in all church ministries, we emphasize, adhere to and practice the Bible teaching as found in I Corinthians 11:3 and I Timothy 2:12.

"But I would have you to know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."

"But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet."
