Calvin Institute of Theology (CIT) offers theological education that is both Biblical and Reformed in order that the students may translate their education into “Living Orthodoxy”.
Calvin Institute of Theology was established on July 4, 2009 commemorating the 500th birth anniversary of the great reformer John Calvin. The Institute presents John Calvin as a role model to the men and women under ministerial training for the spirit of reformation and hard work. There is a great deal of emphasis at this time in our history on celebrating and enhancing our diversity. At the same time, our church has a history, both cultural and theological, and a vision and mission to shape the community from the great reformation. CIT, while cherishing the reformed principles and values offers ministerial training that is biblically truthful, contextually relevant and theologically innovative. It aims to train servants of God to the churches in India who are reformed in spirit, word and practice. For this reason, CIT sets up the motto as “let me be consumed in His service”. CIT equips students towards servant -hood leadership. Under the canopy of this motto, Calvin Institute of Theology helps students to Preach with conviction, with assurance, with faith. Ministry is not just for the church, but also for the kingdom of God, and not only for the kingdom of God here and now, but also for the great emergence of the kingdom in its final stage. “Your kingdom come; your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”
