STATEMENT OF FAITH
While our College has strong Baptist roots and we are proud of our rich Baptist heritage, we welcome students from many different denominations provided that they are willing to accept our Statement of Faith. Our Statement of Faith is based on that which was passed by the Baptist Union Assembly which was held in Durban in September 1924.
Our theological education is shaped by our commitment to the inspired Word of God and our belief that the Church can and should be relevant in contemporary society.
