“The aim of Pentecostal awakening is not the building of a single church but the building of all churches.”
Gerrit R. Polman (1868-1932), Dutch Pentecostal leader
1. The mission of the College is to provide Bible-based, Christian higher education in a Pentecostal setting and to prepare students for the service of God, the church and the world.
2. The main mission of the college is to educate Christian professionals (theologians, pastors, pastoral assistants) who prepare to serve the church by acquiring modern and comprehensive knowledge of Scripture and pastoral work, and by participating in the practice of church life during the course of their training.
Our institution’s vision is based on the following keywords: credibility (moral and theological), performance (measurable and presentable educational and research results), dedication (immersion in studies and research, enthusiasm in the implementation of the Christian mission), and influence (Christian values at social level, displaying biblical faith at church level).
Credibility will be conveyed in the teaching of lecturers arising from pure theological vision and will be visible in an exemplary fashion inspired by their virtuous and dignified walk of life. The success of our graduated students in their service is based on a Christian lifestyle arising from a moral character.
Performance is achieved through accurate, presentable and accountable work, both in teaching and learning.
Dedication is based on the self-denial arising from following Christ and a powerful testimony originating in the mission of the Pentecostal movement. A visible sign of this is immersion in studies and research and the unquenchable desire to fulfil Christ’s mission.
Influence is exercised at the level of society as a whole by exploring the current ways and means of displaying Christian values and, at church level, by representing and promoting the Scripture-based faith and church practice.
