Our Mission

Educate men and women in the Word of God and instill a strong Bible foundation in order to develop a lifestyle of faith and prepare for their ministry call.

Empower with the anointing of the Holy Spirit to do the work of the ministry with signs following.

Equip to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry.

“I believe that one obstacle to revival is inadequate theological education. God can use theological education to prepare His church for a new reformation or for a new revival. More than once, revivals have come as a result of a rediscovery of biblical truth. Studies based on how the Scriptures emphasize key biblical terms are helping the church rediscover the role of the kingdom of God in the New Testament.”

Our History

Doctors Bud and Faith Fredrick began Faith Christian University in 1995 as a small Bible institute in Orlando, Florida with the mission to educate, empower and equip men and women for their ministry call.

For many years, FCU experienced consistent growth and development and has always sought new ways and innovations to broaden the scope of their effectiveness.

In 2006 Faith Christian University launched their Online Program to students around the world and later in 2009 began the FCU Educational Fellowship and the Extension Campus Program which enabled campuses in local churches throughout the United States.

On September 18, 2010, Dr. Bud Fredrick went home to be with the Lord. Affectionately called, Dr. Bud, he was an integral part of the vision and administration of FCU. He is greatly missed by all.


Faith Christian University is a nonprofit religious corporation chartered by the State of Florida, as Faith Teaching International, Inc, and authorized by The Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities as a registered degree granting institution under Section 246.083 of the Florida statutes.


FCU is credited through TransWorld Accrediting Commission International (TACI), an international, federally recognized nonprofit church educational organization with a mandate to establish minimal acceptable standards, criteria and shared Biblical Doctrine.
