Aims of the Seminary
“The things that thou has heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also(2 Timothy 2:2)”.
The aims of the seminary is primarily
- To train competent pastors who are sound theological, doctrinally and exegetically.

- Training and Retraining of pastors by equipping them with necessary theological and Christian materials.
- To give encouragement to those called for missions.
The school runs a two-year Diploma in theology/pastoral studies and a two-year degree programme in theology. Meanwhile, we are planning for one-year certificate course for those without prerequisite qualifications, and a one-year higher diploma for those from other Bible colleges who cannot meet up with our BA/BTh Qualifications.
CANDIDATES: Pastors, lay preachers, church officers, and serious aspirants for Christian service are invited and urge all who have a real burden on their hearts to minister the Gospel to apply. Our pastors need training because they bear great responsibility for the health of their churches, and need to be aware of the issue affecting the churches today.
