The mission of BTC Southern Africa is to offer people called to Christian ministry a biblically based, relevant theological education, which focuses on devotional integrity, practical competence and academic excellence. This 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 current society.
In 1951 the Baptist Union of Southern Africa established The Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa. Its goal then was to prepare pastors for Baptist churches. Over the years the college has established itself as one of the premier ministry training institutions in the country. The focus has broadened significantly to include the training of pastors, youth pastors and missionaries.
The narrow denominational focus has changed, and the college now welcomes students from all denominational and church backgrounds who are willing to accept our statement of faith.
