God brings His Church to maturity through the teaching of His Word (Ephesians 4:11-15). In the Ugandan church, discipleship has not kept pace with evangelism. Church planting has outpaced pastoral training, and untrained leaders and their congregations are ill-equipped to speak to the issues challenging the African Christian.
• Cults and False Teaching
The Church of Uganda tries to meet these challenges through the establishment of the Uganda Bible Institute. Rev. Canon Johnson Twinomujuni, a Ugandan ordained minister in the Church of Uganda and graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary, is the principal of the Institute.
The chief aim of UBI is to strengthen the Church in Uganda and beyond through theological education by training and equipping church leaders with necessary knowledge and skills to rightly understand and effectively teach the Word of God to their congregations and the non-believers.
An informed, transformed, theologically sound and Christ-centered Church.
Goals for the Institute:
• Equip church leaders with knowledge and skills in Biblical Studies
• Provide facilities for residential students and leaders’ conferences
• Develop a library which facilitates theologically conservative scholarship
• Encourage leaders to develop theological and discipleship materials
• Work in cooperation with existing theological programs
