Below is endorsement letter for ABTS New Delhi -from Bishop Dr. Sylbert Clarke ( He is our Current ABTS New Delhi, a PhD in Systematic Theology student):

Divine Approval – Accreditation from Studying in Apostolic Biblical Theological Seminary (ABTS) New Delhi,India.I have been persistent and very determine to continue pursuing my Christian education to equip myself in order to accomplish my God-given task for years. But, I've discovered it was extremely difficult to realize or achieve my goal in a   residential setting, having to manage a full-time job and take care of other important responsibilities. However, driven by my passion for the things of God, I was relentless to achieve my aim, knowing that: “lack of knowledge” destroys also God’s people. Therefore, my quest for the knowledge of God led to hours of scouring the Internet, hoping to find an appropriate religious institution with online programs that could satisfy my thirst for knowledge. Or provide something suitable or substantial to study conveniently, while working and studying simultaneously.

What I’ve also discovered during the process of trying to find a reliable institution is that: there are substandard and also fake (Diploma Mills) online religious institutions out there. Nevertheless, my insatiable appetite for a deeper and more profound knowledge of God is almost completely satisfied. Because of the home environment provided by Apostolic Biblical  Theological Seminary (ABTS), New Delhi, India, that I have discovered by chance while browsing the Internet. My knowledge of God has increased dramatically and substantially, I have a tighter connection with God through the study materials provided by ABTS and also I've received tremendous confirmation of revelations given to me by God even from my infancy in the LORD! 

Additionally, the administrative staff at ABTS is very commendable for their help, dedication and commitment to imparting God’s words to all its students. Also, the seminary is highly recognizable and recommendable because of the top quality study materials it provides. For example, every educational institution must have some level of approval or accreditation for graduates to gain recognition or further access to education elsewhere. If not, the qualification achieved previously is deemed worthless in many regards. But theologically speaking, ABTS is unequivocally a direct inspiration of God. 

Evidently, ABTS will enlighten, edify and furnish not only men and women with meaningful Biblical knowledge and competence to unleash their divine potential in this generation, but laid the foundation for years to come! Students expecting to graduate from ABTS can anticipate with eager confidence of obtaining a high degree and wealth of knowledge that God approves. “There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it” and as we have already established that the word of God is truth. It behooves us to; “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15). Or to emphasize, the theological achievement from ABTS, which is centered around  the Bible, will definitely lead to the acquisition of divine approval or accreditation which is most important! By: Bishop Dr. Sylbert Clarke (24th October 2014).

        And Many many more......!!!
