Our purpose at Central Africa Baptist College & Seminary is to train a generation of servant-leaders in Africa who will carry out the Great Commission. Our goal is to help facilitate an indigenous church planting movement that will take the gospel across this continent.
Our philosophy is to intentionally train and equip the “leader of leaders” in an environment committed to the authority of Scripture, passionate for the glory of God, and focused on the Great Commission.
Because we realize that the future of the gospel in Africa lies in the hands and hearts of the African leaders we are mentoring, we feel strongly that they must be given the opportunity to wrestle through the application of biblical principles within their context.
Central Africa Baptist College & Seminary is grateful for our international partners. We thank God for the help, encouragement and support from our friends in America. CABC is an African institution. True indigenization means a shift of leadership from Americans to Africans because these godly and gifted men know their culture better than outsiders ever will. The very important process of determining the proper application of biblical principles within a specific time and place requires that kind of sanctified insider discernment. The goal is to train men not to plant western churches in Zambia, but biblically sound, gospel preaching Zambian (African) churches. The goal of God-centered worship in this culture is best served through the leadership of these godly, gifted men who have trained in the Scriptures to engage in this very kind of ministry task. Being faithful to timeless biblical truths here in Zambia demands timely applications of that truth within this culture by men who understand both the Scriptures and the culture. We are confident that God will work through His Word and His servants to do this for His glory.
We at CABC are committed to the continued development of this level of African leadership. We are committed to walking together in a spirit of mutual love, respect, and submission. It is a privilege to train and partner with the next generation of servant-leaders in Africa. May God be glorified through the indigenous propagation of the gospel across Africa.
