Nazarene Theological College is a community of scholars who seek to advance the work of God in the world through sound research, participation in scholarly dialogue, and effective teaching that encourages a Christian perspective of truth and life.
NTC offers an education informed by the Wesleyan tradition, while being fully aware of, and committed to, the richness of the Christian heritage with its diversity of understandings.

The educational philosophy of Nazarene Theological College is predicated upon the conviction that there is no contradiction between the best in education and the highest in spiritual development. Consequently, NTC is committed to offering a quality education which emphasises application in various Christian ministries in a way that is faithful to our ecclesiastical tradition.
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.
