SCHOOL OF Education And Humanities

B.A Christian Religious Studies

MISSION STATEMENT

The Department as depository of the University’s religious and academic heritage serves as God’s instructional channel to equip, through the word of God, ministers in preparation for active service in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as provide basic saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to non-ministerial students.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the Department of Religious Studies are to:

1. Expose the ministers-in-training to an in-depth knowledge of the Bible by providing them with essential tools for biblical hermeneutics that emphasize humanity’s salvation through Jesus Christ;

2. Prepare ministerial leaders for the Seventh-day Adventist Church and other willing interests in the propagation of the everlasting gospel and the soon return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to redeem the world;

3. Prepare religious and moral educators to reinforce lost moral values in the family, schools and wider society in collaboration with the departments of Education and General Studies as well as the School of Post-Graduate Studies;

4. Facilitate appropriate theological and pastoral training for individuals who hitherto had no such training but have a sense of calling to the Gospel ministry.
