Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that we shall be able to welcome you in person at ABC.
Alathea Bible College is inter-denominational, and in Siyabuswa, South Africa. 'Alathea' is Greek for ‘truth.’ Jesus was full of 'alathea and grace', and fulfillment of his great commission in Matthew 28:20 needs those who have found the Truth; who have been set free to live in the Truth, and are equipped to proclaim the Truth!
It is our desire at ABC by the Holy Spirit’s empowering to do just that! To help those who are called by God to pastoral or lay-leadership, to be deeply impacted by the Truth and confidently lead others to know it and to live it. The dual emphasis of a Bible & skills training college demonstrates our commitment to sound Biblical knowledge and understanding, and practical equipping for the work of the ministry.
ABC has attempted to meet the great need for affordable, accessible, high quality Bible college education. Our faculty serves voluntarily , and comes from the UK, USA, Africa and other parts of the world.
We offer accredited certificate programmes through our training partnerships with the Nehemiah Bible Institute and the University of Pretoria; and the BTh degree with the South African Theological Seminary. You will find qualified faculty that loves Jesus, has wide experience of serving and church planting and desires to see the Kingdom of God extended in hearts and communities.
Alathea Bible College is registered as an NPO as Alathea Skills Training and Higher Education College and we do NOT confer qualifications. Our training partner the Nehemiah Bible Institute's certificates are accredited through the University of Pretoria; and our partner the South African Theological Seminary's certificate and degree programmes are accredited with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). Our students are registered directly with NBI and SATS who ultimately confer the accredited qualifications at graduation.
Siyabuswa, in the Zulu—Ndbele heartland of Mpumalanga, is the headquarters of Hope For Africa Mission, which founded ABC. Hope for Africa was established in 1992 to church plant and extend the work of the Gospel holistically throughout southern Africa, through relief and community development.We are two hours from Johannesburg airport and two and a half hours from South Africa’s political capital, Pretoria.
It is an exciting place to be. We believe God is mightily at work here. If He is calling you, by His grace come and join us!
