We seek to subject our thoughts and actions to God’s word and affirm the power of scripture to effect change in individual lives, churches and society.
We seek to grow in our understanding of God and his ways, so that we may help others we acknowledge his governance over the world with its rich possibilities for both individual transformation and for social and cultural renewal.
We believe that theological education speaks to and out of its local context as a dynamic interaction between the local context, the global context and scripture.
Cooperation and partnership
We strongly believe that unity among the churches of Ethiopian is important and can be fostered through cooperatives, inter-denominational graduate- level theological education. We also seek to partner with individuals, institutions, churches and organisations within and outside Ethiopia.
We value learning alongside people from different tradition and churches. Exposure to varying traditions challenges thinking about God and the diversity of his work in the world.
Academic Excellence/ critical Thinking
We value the importance of worshipping God with our minds and strive for excellence both in our rigorous study of scripture and in our critical analysis of context.
We seek to be people who model Christian’s values such as love, humility, compassion, justice, integrity, self-control and holiness.
