About Us
International Theological Seminary (ITS) is a fully accredited institution of Christian Education operating in the Lufkin area with ITS history beginning with Conroe College in 1988.
 
This school is designed to meet the educational needs of all Christians. It reaches across cultural, Christian Denominational, gender, ethnic, economical, and educational differences in preparing God's people for the unique challenges of their vocational calling.
Company History
 
International Theological Seminaryis located at Mt. Beulah Baptist Church 217 South Warren Street, Lufkin, TX 75901 under the leadership of Dr. N C Simmons, President and Dr. Charles Walls, Dean.
Conroe College was founded by Dr. J. Johnson in 1903 and chartered by the State of Texas in 1904. The extension at Lufkin was granted to Dr. N C Simmons in 1988. Fall classes began with a staff of seven administration workers, seven resource staff members, and five faculty members.
In the fall of 1997, the Lufkin Area Extension School of Conroe College (LAESCC) established a partnership affiliation with Central Christian University of Arkansas under the leadership of the late Dr. Ken Brassfield. The name was changed from LAESCC to Mt. Beulah Institute & Seminary (MBIS). The school of excellence continued with an upward course to gain accreditation and certification needed to provide the students who attend the campus for study, both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Finally in 2008, MBIS became the International Theological Seminary (ITS).
Authorization and Accreditation
 
International Theological Seminary (ITS) has obtained Full Accreditation Status with Transworld Accrediting Commission (TAC). TAC is a professional nonprofit educational organization that accredits traditional and nontraditional schools, colleges, and theological seminaries. The philosophy of TAC is to demonstrate accountability to the consuming public for education obtained in traditional and nontraditional evangelical educational institutions. This accountability is demonstrated by institutions that are accredited by TAC having documented evidence of compliance with TAC standards of structure and governance, material resources, policies, faculty, and curriculum.
Degree programs are for religious purposes only and are strictly intended for use in the religious community. Therefore it is the responsibility of each student to determine, prior to registration at ITS that their degree program or studies meet admission, employment or tranfer requirements.
ITS has been declared by the appropriate state authority exempt from requirements for licensure under provisions of the Texas Supreme Court decision for exemption from licensure with respect to religious education. Exemption from licensure is not based upon any assessment of program quality under established licensing standards.
ITS makes no representations, promises or guarantees of employment, or acceptability of transfer credits to any public or private educational institution.
