The Master of Divinity in Theology is a three-year masteral program whose aim is the holistic development of pastor-theologians, emphasizing the balanced training of head (academic scholarship), heart (spirituality) and hand (ministry skills, contextualization and especially the ability to communicate the truths of the Christian faith through writing). Those who graduate from the study program will be able to:
exegete the Bible according to sound hermeneutical principles, aided by the insights of Christian tradition, and in accordance with the highest standards of academic scholarship.
do local theology by applying one's own exegesis of the Bible to one's own historical context in such a way that holistic transformation is effected within one's own social, political, and cultural spheres of influence.
consistently model the disciplined and practical exercise of an internally formed biblical holiness.
shepherd the flock of God through the effective use of God-given spiritual gifts and seminary honed ministry skills.
communicate the Christian faith through the faithful exercise of preaching and writing. Though the study program is primarily designed to equip students for pastoral ministry, it also provides excellent preparation for those intending to pursue higher theological education or to engage in a vocation involving theological education, reflection and writing.
All who take the Master of Divinity in Theology program must complete a total of 96 credit units, which include 90 credit units of core, focus, and elective courses, as well as the two prerequisite courses, Writing Academic Papers and Introduction to the Bible, which are 3 non-credit units each. These prerequisite courses, however, may be validated.

All who take the Master of Divinity in Theology program are also required to participate in at least three Care Group sessions, attend the weekly Chapel services, and to read through the entire Bible once a year until their program of study is completed.
