Choosing KST

The Theology and Education Goals of the Sydney College of Divinity Korean School of Theology:

One, we believe in God who is revealed in the Bible, our Savior Jesus Christ who came to earth as the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit whom He sent, and we receive historical orthodox Reformed Theology as our theology.

Two, we pursue a sound ecumenical theology that works together with other Christian churches that accepts the Nicene Creed. It is a partnership in a mission-minded approach that extends the Lord’s kingdom, acknowledging the diverse characteristics in faith of different denominations and the diversity of methodology in theological pursuits. This is the position of SCD Korean School of Theology.

Three, we maintain the academic standards of accredited Australian Higher Education Providers that award degrees recognised by the Australian Federal Government. Based on the positive achievements of Korean churches, we aim to nurture balanced Christian intellectuals and trustworthy devoted Christian workers who pursue the renewal of Australia, the country where we live, and Australian churches, and the services of all the nations.

Four, we are a non profit educational institution that is accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency(TEQSA) of the Commonwealth Government of Australia. We seek a high level of education without seeking a financial gain.

The Korean awards aim to

– prepare future pastors and leaders for the Korean church in Australia,
– educate Koreans who wish to understand the Christian faith better; and
– train scholars who will be able to teach theological studies to future generations
