Transforming mission through research and scholarship
ACTS is the new product in history of Asia as well as in new age of Christian Mission. This is the combined result from Church Growth in Asia, Advancement of Mission in the 3rd world, and Expansion of Evangelicalism in Asia.
ACTS has its root on both Asia-Pacific Evangelicalism Association and Korean Evangelical Theology Movement. ACTS was established according to the agreement by the Asian church leaders at the Conference for Asian and Pacific Evangelism in Singapore in 1968.
The vision was to establish a new Graduate School of Theology in order to train future church leaders and to advance evangelism in Asia. The original name of our school, ACTS (Asian Center for Theological Studies and Mission), is the name by which we are best known to the public.
Founded in 1998, Torch Trinity is a diverse theological institution in which Christians of different backgrounds and cultures come together to be equipped as ministers for the churches of Christ. It is a Christian community where all, whether faculty, staff, or students, serve the Lord in one mind and one heart.
Torch Trinity is particularly keen on world missions and evangelism. Mission, God’s mandate for all Christians, is the foundational commitment of our school. In fact, Torch Trinity was established as an outgrowth of the evangelistic fervor that touched many mission-minded Christians during and after the Global Consultation on World Evangelization (GCOWE) which was hosted by Torch Mission Center in 1995. From its inception, Torch Trinity has endeavored to reach out strategically for “unreached people groups” by inviting potential leaders from the Majority World that they may acquire biblically sound education and training in a cultural setting that is more amenable to their ministerial context. It was God’s grace that Torch Trinity started as the only English-speaking graduate university in South Korea in the spring of 1998. Since 2005, the university has adopted bilingual teaching in order to serve the leaders of Korean churches more effectively and facilitate strategic cooperation beyond national boundaries for world missions.
Torch Trinity is committed to providing Bible-centered teaching, strives for excellence in academic training, and promotes mission in relevant ways for the transformation of the world. We prepare our students to become ministers and leaders who are well-versed in biblical truth and have Christ-like mind and passion for the world. At Torch Trinity, faculty, staff, students and alumni support one another as members of the Body of Christ that we all may be found as God’s faithful coworkers.
