Since 1856, Moore College has been providing in-depth theological training in order to prepare men and women for Christian ministry and mission. It is based in Newtown, Sydney. Moore College’s vision is evangelical and international, training gospel workers in multiple denominations and various locations.
The College’s role is expanding. There are enormous opportunities for outreach, church planting and fresh theological course development in new and emerging nations. Students come to study from a wide range of church and cultural contexts, for enrolment in diploma, graduate and postgraduate courses. In turn, graduates serve in over 100 locations, throughout Australia, South-East Asia, China, Africa, Europe and South America.
We are a Christian community where men and women learn to love the Lord Jesus, teach the Word of God, and carry the gospel of salvation to the ends of the earth. To this end, we are:
Biblical – the Bible is at the centre of everything we do. We read the text in depth, understand it in light of the unfolding message of Scripture as a whole, and learn to teach what it teaches.
Theological – we train students to think theologically. This means understanding how everything connects to God and his great plan so that we enable our graduates to apply biblical truth to any current and future situation.
Reformed-evangelical – the Bible’s good news is that salvation comes through Christ alone, grounded in grace alone, leading to justification by faith alone, on the authority of Scripture alone, all to the glory of God alone. Everything we do is characterised by this gospel.
Missional – the global mission of the Lord Jesus Christ drives everything we do. We prepare men and women to faithfully proclaim the gospel of salvation and new life in Christ throughout the world.
Communal – we are committed to ministry education and character formation based on learning in community. Formal learning is just the beginning: we are shaped as Christian disciples, as we do life together in community.
