Our Purpose

The School of Theology (SOT) is a full-time Bible college started in 1994 with the purpose of bringing its students into a deeper relationship with God, and empowering them with the scriptural knowledge and skills required for effective and anointed ministry in and outside the local church. SOT also trains potential pastors and missionaries to establish strong local churches in their own cities and nations.

This purpose is specifically spelled out in the Mission Statement of City Harvest Church (CHC): “To build a church with a strong spiritual atmosphere of faith and purity, where every member is released into ministry, discipled in the Great Commandment, to obey the Great Commission and the Cultural Mandate.”

  • Working through the local church

God is building strong churches all over the world to become the prime discipling and training centers of His kingdom. Through effective discipleship, you will learn how faithfulness and teamwork in a local church are vital prerequisites for revival to take place in a nation.

  • World missions

Jesus said in the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:19). At SOT, we desire to inspire and encourage you to be more involved in world missions. Students will get to participate in mission trips where they will work with local churches to conduct evangelistic outreach, preach the gospel and get the lost saved.

  • Signs and wonders

At SOT, you will be taught by anointed teachers who move in the gifts of the Spirit and minister the life of the Spirit effectively.

  • Strong prayer life

A vital part of SOT is an emphasis on prayer. This subject is not only taught, but also practiced. On-the-job training is a feature of SOT that empowers every student to impart to others what they have received.

  • Practical ministry

Learn how to preach the Word of God. Be trained in the art of worship-leading and the works of home cell group leading. You will not only be taught theoretical aspects of the ministry, but also be supervised on-the-job under the watchful eyes of the ministry leaders.

  • Being in an environment of faith

At SOT, you will be surrounded by people who walk by faith. You will learn how to overcome challenges in your personal life and ministry. You will soon realize that you, too, can have faith that grows and bears much fruit!
