Vision & Mission Statement
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.
The Transformational power of scripture
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.
