The design concept of the Logo is brought by the nature of the mission of Calvin Institute of Theology. The shield in the logo obviously stems from the ancient historical traditions, where it symbolized strength, military mightiness, nobleness, and justice. Thus, it gives emphasis to the role of each student at CIT in carving out, nurturing, and defending their faith, their lives, and their livelihoods, throughout the ages. It is also known from the ancient history that classic shield represents the symbol of protection. Therefore, Cross in the middle of the shield represents the protection of God through Christ in the areas of personal discipline, spiritual life and the personal conduct of each. Christ gives life, strength and light. The fire surrounding the cross depicting the commitment and the sacrificial willingness of each student towards the service of God. The same concept has been reemphasized with the Latin motto statement of John Calvin, Terar Dum Prosim which means "Let me be consumed in His service."
