About MCUC

Our Purpose:

Metropolitan Christian University, MCUC’s parent institution is established for the purpose of providing quality and affordable Biblical/Theological Degree Programs for those who labor in Ministry. We are a Christian institution of higher learning. However, we subscribe to, practice, teach and preach the doctrines of the Christian Faith. Metropolitan Christian University of Chicago is recognized as one of the official educational institutions of the following church organizations/reformations:

Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches
Abyssinian Apostolic Church 
International College of Bishops

Pentecostal Churches of Holiness International Ecclesiastical Fellowship
Pentecostal Holiness Church of Christ
United Assemblies of Christ International
United Baptist Church of America


Although the word “University,” may imply graduate training for higher institutional learning, MCU has been established for the sole purpose of issuing credentials to men and women as certified, licensed and ordained professional ministers. With this status, we may train, as well as license, ordain and commission men and women in professional ministry through one of the affiliated church organizations/reformations..

Our emphasis is not to achieve secular accreditation, although we issue degrees for ministry purposes only. Our mission is to equip the minister with practical education for his/her ministry. We continue in this practical path as the means of fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

Metropolitan Christian University Chicago is accredited by non-secular, religious-based, non-governmental accrediting agencies that believe in and promote separation of church and state.
