The church needs Christians who have thought through the implications of their faith and can relate it incisively, relevantly and practically to society. The LST Theology programme is academically rigorous but also addresses the changing cultural and intellectual climate. It is a dynamic and innovative programme that does not neglect key foundational principles of an evangelical faith.
