Principal’s Message


Warm greetings! Congratulations on your decision to study with us at Church on the Rock Theological Seminary (COTRTS). God uses this institution to train and send forth well-qualified and Spirit-filled Christian workers to fulfil the Great Commission of Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:18–20). The seminary has been instrumental in training over 2500 transformed leaders serving in the nation and beyond in various capacities and many planning churches.

COTRTS offers B.Th., M.Div., M.Th. (Church History and Missiology), and also Ph.D. (Missiology) programs. We also offer fully online B.Th. and M.Div. programs. Our academic programs are accredited by the Asia Theological Association (ATA).

At COTRTS, we are committed to offering scholastic learning and spiritual formation. Our leadership, faculty team, and the whole community are passionate about empowering students to become Word-cantered and mission-driven leaders. Our curriculum is carefully designed for both academic and practical training. Our faculty members are well-qualified and committed to service. We are a family where each live for the other, and all live for God. The faculty and students from various denominational, cultural, ethnic, linguistic backgrounds enrich the community life. The cell groups, cultural and talent nights, sports, etc., help the members to celebrate the otherness in the other. The faculty-supervised field exposure provides an opportunity to translate academic learning in the field.

The Child care, Education, Media, and Health institutions on the campus provide a comprehensive approach and environment to the training that is the uniqueness of the training context at COTRTS. Academic seminars, mission conferences, lectures, theological debates, etc., enhance students’ academic life. The environment also provides opportunities to develop one’s skills in music and media communication.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our seminary! Enjoy and experience God’s enigmatic providence!
