AIMS & OBJECTIVES To prepare men and women for full-time Christian service in various realms of the ministry; and to develop leaders for the church, providing the most flexible environment for training. To provide opportunities for students to acquire skills for critical thought, scholarly research, and the integration of knowledge, which will aid continued independent and creative research. To teach sound doctrine through proper interpretation of the Scriptures, governed by grammatical, historical and contextual hermeneutics, and in a manner consistent with the apostles and the Old Testament prophets. To be a catalyst to bring unity in the body of Christ by providing a common place where people from all different evangelical backgrounds can come together for study and research. To create awareness about unreached people groups and prepare students to go into the world as Christ has instructed, thereby fulfilling the Great Commission.
ACCREDITATION & AFFILIATION
1. ADVANCED DIPLOMA OF MINISTERIAL TRAINING (Adv. Dip.): The programme is designed to prepare students for full-time ministry. Designed as a supplement course for EAPTC School of Mission programme, this Word-packed course will be most meaningful to those who already have some ministry experience and find themselves in need of further professional and theological training for a sound doctrinal balance in their ministry. One can complete the course by covering 18 helpful subjects namely: Church History, Systematic Theology I, II, III, Pentateuch, Mission & Evangelism, Christian Education, Bible Study & Interpretation, New Testament Survey, Historical Books, Gospel, Preaching, Personal Spiritual Life, Old Testament Survey, Romans, Church Ministry & Administration & Education, Pastoral Ministry and Discipleship. Upto a total of 54 credit hours may be earned through this course. However, Advanced Diploma of Ministerial Training, which will be issued upon completion of this course, is a mere recognition of completing an additional training which supplements the EAPTCSM programme, and the credit hours earned in the course are not necessarily intended to meet all the accreditation criteria of other institutions, although many schools may acknowledge its values.

WE BELIEVE That the Bible is the inspired Word of God. That the Godhead eternally exists in the three persons of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. That the Church consists of all persons regenerated by the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ and is entitled to a fellowship between Her members. That Jesus Christ is the Saviour and all who believe in Him can be saved. That Jesus Christ is the healer of the body and mind, and all who walk in obedience to Him can claim divine healing for their bodies and minds. In the personal return of Jesus Christ to set up His throne as King. That every believer on the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour should produce the fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:22. That God has given various ministries: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for the edifying of the Body of Christ. In the eternal conscious bliss of all true believers in Christ and in the eternal conscious punishment in the lake of fire for all Christ rejecters.
