About Osborn Institute of Theology

Welcome to the Osborn Institute of Theology (OIT), which is now fully accredited by Transworld Accrediting Commission International. OIT provides an award-winning online learning platform that equips men and women with the revealed Word of God and prepares them to share and bear witness of Jesus Christ to the Church and the World. The Institute seeks to combine academic excellence and remarkable spiritual knowledge of its network of Fellows, to provide a theological education that is thorough, biblically-based and practical. Specifically, we aim:


  • To provide the foundation for a life of public ministry through the rigorous integration of spiritual and personal development, theological learning, and ministerial and practical experience.

  • To provide high quality teaching for all engaged in ministerial formation

  • To ensure that our common life is framed and fashioned by the Word

  • To work in dynamic partnership with institutions and agencies which are committed to the flourishing of local churches and the transformation of society.

Our Values

We seek to prepare people for public ministry who are:

  • Holy and faithful ministers, disciplined in the life of prayer, nourished by Word, and growing in their awareness of themselves in relation to God and others.

  • Wise and instinctive theologians, immersed in the riches of the Christian tradition, committed to intellectual rigour, and alert to the demands of public ministry in an ecumenical and multi-faith context.

  • Compassionate and effective pastors, creatively engaged with God’s mission in the world, passionate about the transformation of society, and committed to the flourishing and, renewal of the church.

Core Values
  • Christ-centered, Spirit-led character

  • Bible-based, world-engaged curriculum

  • Intellectual energy interacting with effective praxis

  • Accessible and affordable to all believers

  • Collegial, collaborative, and encouraging environment

  • Model and guide students in development of a mature and balanced biblical worldview

These core values define who we are, what we aspire to be as an institution and the above mentioned values are reinforced in our students through the courses we offer.
