Vision & Mission Statement

Our Purpose

It is the conviction of GWC that the Word of God is the primary agent of transformation in the world.

We believe that all Scripture is God-breathed and, when rightly put into action, has the power to change men and women into the image of Christ and bring them into the Kingdom of God.

The church in Africa is growing, and a growing church needs trained leaders who can lead people to better understand God’s Word and disciple their congregations to Christian maturity. The rate of church growth in Africa is exceeding the number of theologically trained church leaders available to disciple these churches.

GWC therefore seeks to play a role in equipping the current and future leaders of the church in Africa to correctly handle the Word of God.


That Africa be filled with preachers and teachers who deeply love the Lord Jesus and who have a profound understanding of Scripture, in order that Africa may increase its share in the Kingdom of God.


To shape minds via a classical theological education, nurture hearts devoted to Christian service and train voices to effectively communicate the word of Christ.

Our ethos

People Matter

As a Christian institution we place a high premium on personal relationships and we regard as of prime importance the family nature as well as the corporate dimension of all that we do


All work undertaken by staff and students is to be done in conformity with the scriptural exhortation to do everything as unto the Lord

The Transformational power of scripture

All Scripture is God breathed and when understood properly has the power to change men and women into the image of Christ

Core Beliefs

We believe that God has revealed himself and his plan for the human race through the prophetic writings of the Old and New Testaments and ultimately by becoming a man in the person of Jesus Christ.

At the heart of this plan is God’s establishment of Jesus Christ as Lord and King of his Universe through his sin-bearing death and death-defeating resurrection. Jesus commanded that this be communicated to people of all nations that they might believe and be saved before his coming again to rule visibly, gloriously and forever. Salvation is by Christ’s grace alone, and is received by faith alone.

Believers become members of Christ (“in Christ”) and this determines their fundamental corporate identity, transcending all differences of nationality, race, gender and class. As Christians we are one body in Christ, members of his Church and individually children of God and brothers and sisters to each other.

As an evangelical Anglican college we are in essential agreement with the three great creeds, the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion, the Lausanne Covenant and the GAFCON Declaration. We accept the Book of Common Prayer of 1662 and the Ordinal as our standard of worship and church order. For more on our emphasis on the unified plan of God evident in the Bible, read Ross Anderson’s brief article on Biblical Theology.


GWC is big on biblical theology
We believe the Old and New Testaments are one developing revelation of God to humankind. We want to grasp the big picture: to see how the Old and New Testaments fit together.
