Choosing NTC

Nazarene Theological College was established in 1953 by the Church of the Nazarene, an evangelical denomination in the Wesleyan tradition. It is one of fifty-two tertiary level institutions worldwide operated by the church, serving both its own denomination and students from other Christian traditions. Its major focus is to prepare men and women for the challenges of Christian ministry (both ordained and lay) in Australia, New Zealand and throughout the world. NTC fosters within the students a passion to make a difference in the church and community through involvement in mission, discipleship and pastoral care.

At NTC there are many options for study, whatever your educational background or academic goals. NTC strives to provide quality theological education and offer maximum flexibility in all of their courses. International students are also fully catered for through their partnership with the New-Horizons School of English (NSE). Students who would like to come and study in Australia but have hesitated due to a language barrier, can combine an English language course with their NTC study and learn theology and English at the same time.
