In the Bachelor of Theology, students will develop a strong biblical and theological foundation and be equipped for long-term mission and ministry. The degree is tailored for God’s people wherever they work, minister and live in the church, workplace and community.

Students will explore biblical and theological issues and develop critical-thinking skills that will enable them to foster a culture of reflection in pastoral situations through sound biblical and theological frameworks. The study of biblical languages allows students to engage the biblical text at a new and profound level. ACOM’s spiritual formation process is interwoven throughout this degree, with the aim of enhancing the overall personal and spiritual development of students, challenging them to delve deeply into their relationship with God.
