Biblical & Religious Studies

Philosophy

The department of Biblical and Religious Studies believes that God is the creator and sustainer of the universe. In love, He sent Jesus Christ to atone for the sins of humanity. The same God has commissioned us to advance His work by pointing fallen human beings to the great sacrifice at Calvary in preparation for the return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Vision

Spurred by the approach of the climax of history, the Second Advent of Christ, we will physically, mentally, spiritually and socially strive for excellence.

Goal

To prepare ministers of the gospel for pastoral ministry for effectiveness and efficiency in teaching, preaching, leadership and personal competence within the body of Christ, the church, and the world at large.

Objectives

To equip students with the basic tools of interpreting scriptures within the historical, cultural, archaeological, grammatical and biblical contexts.
To prepare students for postgraduate studies in pastoral, theological, biblical and religious disciplines.
To promote theological education primarily from an African perspective but with an intentional heart expecting contributions from the WATS’ stakeholders.
