1. Promote the fulfillment of Christian love in precept and in action as revealed in the Scriptures, being the main spiritual objective of the College.
2. Prepare competent, highly motivated and consecrated ministers, Bible teachers, hospital chaplains, leaders in the publishing work, and other ministerial tasks in fulfilling the Church's mission.
3. Develop students into fully committed workers who are compassionate to the people, zealous to teach the gospel, warm hearted, and loyal to the Seventh- day Adventist Church.
4. Prepare certain students for graduate programs in religion.
