The South Pacific Association of Evangelical Colleges (SPAEC) (previously the South Pacific Association of Bible Colleges (SPABC)) is an association of independent evangelical Bible Colleges. It was formed in 1969. Colleges are located in Australia (all states plus the Australian Capital Territory), Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and New Zealand.

Membership "requires agreement with the Association’s evangelical position with regard to God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, salvation and the Bible", and is conditional on meeting standards [1] relating to:

  • "Stability of operation.
  • Leadership and administration.
  • Financial responsibility.
  • Number and qualifications of full-time faculty.
  • Relationship to the Christian community at large.
  • Resources — human and physical - supporting the programs.
  • Attention to Christian character development in students."

Member colleges are regularly reassessed to assure that the standards are maintained.
