Where God calls people to live and learn

The college changes lives. People come here to immerse themselves in God’s Word, and to learn from those who have dedicated their lives to their practice. Our students grow their faith while gaining tools they need for life-long ministry.

All our courses have one, vital thing in common: they’re about applied theology. We’ve designed our courses to give you a biblical and theological foundation on which to build your life and ministry. We aim to thoroughly equip students to serve God in practical and relevant ways within today’s ever-changing world.

On average, over 90% of our graduates find work as soon as they complete their studies.* You’ll find them around the globe, serving churches, missionary societies, youth organisations, schools and colleges.

At Moorlands College, we’re not just about education, but transformation. Our prayer is that you leave with both your qualification and a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Statement of Faith

We believe:

  • There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  • The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
  • Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ, God’s incarnate Son, is fully God; he was born of a virgin; his humanity is real and sinless; he died on the cross, was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth.
  • Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.
  • Those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God’s sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this justification is God’s act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts.
  • The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.
  • The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christ-like in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness in the world.
  • The one holy universal Church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God’s just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory.
