BGST holds firmly to the conviction that theological training must grapple with the ideas and theologies that have and are still shaping the world today. To this end, it emphasises not only the development of biblical and theological knowledge, but also the acquisition of analytical, critical and integrative skills in applying the Scriptures to our work, Church and society. This emphasis is reflected in the content of the courses, the teaching-learning methods used, the assessment exercises and everything else that we can offer in our programmes.
Admission to BGST Programmes
Though most applicants will have completed a first degree or its equivalent, admission to our programmes is not solely based on academic qualifications. Students who are prepared to meet the standards of the school are encouraged to apply, and every effort will be made by our dedicated lecturers and tutors to assist adult learners in coping with the course requirements.
In addition, churches need godly and faithful leaders who are well-grounded in the Holy Scriptures and equipped in other ways to build up the people of God. Though BGST’s main focus is lay training, we also welcome those who want to prepare for professional Christian ministry.
We warmly welcome overseas students to study with us through our online programmes.
We regularly hold public lectures, conferences, and seminars, which aim to encourage lay people to reflect theologically on how to bring their Christian faith to bear on everyday life. Newsletters and pamphlets are published regularly, through which we hope to deal with special concerns in a focused manner.
BGST sees itself as offering a service to churches in Singapore and the region, complementing the work of other theological schools.
