The purpose of the Bujumbura Christian University
It is to equip people for Christian Ministry for the benefit of the
Church and for all Burundians. The University would, in the first
instance, award a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Theology.
The university will be a Christian community where learning is:
As part of the Anglican Church of the Province of Burundi, at the heart
of all we do is our belief in the Triune God of love. We believe in Jesus: incarnate, crucified, risen, ascended and glorified. We believe he died for
our sins and for the sins of the whole world. We believe in the vital
reality of the Holy Spirit, working in the lives of Christians and in the
Bible as the inspired and authoritative word of God.
¨ Academically rigorous
We seek to love the Lord with all our hearts, souls, and minds by
embracing the rigours of academic theology and seeing its practical
application as an integral part of faithful discipleship. Our mission is to
build up the next generation of well equipped Christian leaders for
the glory of God.
We engage in active Christian mission in the words we speak and in
lives we lead, within the Church and the world. Our aim is to make
disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, to encourage their growth into maturity
and to give them the skills to help others to mature in the Faith.
Through a greater knowledge of the Bible we seek to be transformed
more and more into the likeness of Christ; spiritually, intellectually and emotionally, by being open to the activity of the Holy Spirit.
We are called by God to be a warm and vibrant Christian community
that serves, studies, worships, prays and learns together.
