Institutional Purpose and Mission Statement

Nazarene Theological College is a tertiary level institution of higher education of the Church of the Nazarene. It is a community of Christian scholars and learners seeking to present a view of life and man, based on the Word of God, that will guide, stimulate, and equip learners to realize a life of redemptive and reconciliatory service to their fellows, either as pastors, missionaries, evangelists, Christian educators, counselors or lay persons.

The mission of Nazarene Theological College is to prepare men and women, laity and clergy, in the African context for ministry and leadership in the local, district, and global church. NTC promotes a Christian lifestyle and is distinctively Wesleyan-holiness in orientation.

Holiness demands not only right living but also right thinking, The College, therefore, strives to provide opportunity for the learner to:

  1. Continue to develop the ability to listen, think critically, reason clearly, evaluate objectively, and communicate cogently and clearly.
  2. Acquire attitudes, which stimulate awareness of both oneself and Others.
  3. Experience a personal encounter with and dynamic commitment to God in Christ and His way of life.
  4. Develop the gifts of evangelism, preaching pastoral leadership, administration, and counseling.
  5. Develop social, ethical, and professional skills necessary to function competently in a service-ministry to others in a contextualized manner.

    Doctrinal Statement

    Nazarene Theological College is Wesleyan-holiness in its theological paradigm. NTC seeks to provide a biblically based undergraduate level of theological education for self-directed learners to enhance their ministerial service to their religious or global community. In particular, NTC affirms the following:
    • That there is one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
    • That the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain truth necessary to faith and personal living.
    • That man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil and that continually.
    • That the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.
    • That the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race, and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
    • That believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
    • That the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth and to the entire sanctification of believers.
    • That our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
  • Nazarene Theological College and its extension-learning programme is a vital part of a global network of educational institutions around and Africa that seeks to offer quality Christian education to those whom God has called on the Africa South Field. Culminating in four years of negotiations and planning, the merger of our four theological colleges in South Africa was ratified during 1989 and became a reality as a consolidated institution at Nooitgedacht, near Muldersdrift at the beginning of 1990.

    The former campuses of: Nazarene Theological College, Florida established in 1954, originally at Portchefstroom; Africa Nazarene Theological College, Port Elizabeth - 1954,originally at Rehoboth Mission Station near Kempton Part; Lulu Schmelzenbach Memorial Nazarene Theological College, Acornhoek - 1963; KwaZulu Nazarene Bible College, Amanzimtoti (1977) all established one Board of Trustees representing all the districts of the Africa South Field Church of the Nazarene.
