In response to the Great Commission, the EURASIA Region has established the following mission statement:
“To develop (make happen over time), an indigenous (appropriate for the soil), interdependent (connected), self-supporting (dignity/accountability), holiness (personal/social/caring/justice), church (community of faith), in the Wesleyan- (sanctification/all) Arminian (personal responsibility) tradition (hand over-not hand down).”
This mission, along with the EURASIA Integrated Education Strategy (document available through the EURASIA Region Education Office) guides the work of SANBC.
The motto of SANBC is: “Learning, to make Christ known.” Our mission is to provide credible education to all who are called to Nazarene ministry in South Asia. Students and faculty are both engaged in responsible learning processes, in order to become transformational agents in their context. Our commitment is to produce “more and better pastors” for South Asia, and we believe that the Course of Study Proposal that follows is an essential component in their formation.
The mission statement of the college is:
“As a college in the Wesleyan-holiness tradition, SANBC is committed to prepare Christlike servant leaders, equipping them for local ministries in South Asia and beyond; to contribute to the ongoing mission of God, to the lifelong learning of His disciples, and the healthy maturing of His church in contexts where His transforming grace is needed.”
