OUR PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

We believe that the three goals of theological education, knowledge, skills and attitude, result in holistic development and equip theological students to be prepared to follow their calling and fulfill it's purpose.

hands, clay, potter

To learn and understand the truth is one of the fundamental aspects of the Christian faith and theological education helps us to do that by building on the foundation of the Word of God.

Based on the truth of the Word of God, theological education also helps in developing skills that enable us to reach out and influence our communities, churches and the world at large.

The ultimate aim of theological education, as of all aspects of this Christian journey, is to know Christ and to inculcate a Christ-like attitude while encouraging and enabling others to do the same.

TESTIMONIALS

What They Say?

“It was an important time in my life when after a short term trip to Mexico that I left University studies and went to Moody Bible Institute. I graduated two years later and give thanks. To have a similar college in Rajasthan one of the more needy places in the world comes as a great answer to prayer. I recently ministered there to the students and I thank the Lord for what HE is doing there. I pray for more students to go there and for more people to be raised up to prayer and to give to that great ministry."
George Verwer
Operation Mobilization
“It has been one of the highlights of my life to visit the Filadelfia Bible College campus in Udaipur in 2009, and to participate in the annual convention in Navapur and the College graduation service. It has also been our privilege to work with two of the College faculty members who have completed their significant PhD research on Indian themes in Birmingham. I heartily endorse the work carried on by this College.”
