The Seminary is a fully accredited degree-granting institution by the National Commission on Higher Education, Republic of Liberia, (NCHE/RL).

Also, in 1983, the two-degree programs (Bachelor of Art in Theology, Bachelor of Art in Religious Education) of the Institution were accredited by the Accrediting Council Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA) now the Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa.

In compliance with the standards and procedures of ACTEA, The Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary reviews its accreditation status every ten years. Currently, LBTS has a candidacy status with ACTEA and is striving toward full accreditation.
