The Purpose

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:

 ¨ Confessional                                                                                                                                      

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.

 ¨ Practical

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.

 ¨ Relational

 We are called by God to be a warm and vibrant Christian community

 that serves, studies, worships, prays and learns together.
