Each institution should have clearly defined objectives for its program as a whole, for each specific program (major or concentration) and for each course of study. The members of VET will evaluate the whole program in the light of its objectives.

Objectives should be clearly stated in the catalogue. The following are general objectives for an accredited theological institution:

  • To cultivate Christian life and experience.
  • To facilitate a comprehensive knowledge of the Scriptures and an understanding of Christian theology.
  • To enable students for a ministry in the Church in their country by adequate knowledge of cultural, socio-economic and political issues, etc.
  • To instill a vital vision for evangelism, missions, social service and action.
  • To enable students spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, morally and socially.
