About Us

WCIU is dedicated to advancing the cause of Christ through theological education that is faithful to the inerrant Scriptures and prepares God’s servants to communicate the Gospel of Christ to our changing world. We do not only provide theological education, we also integrate the bible in every body of knowledge to offer to our students in the School of Education and Vocational Studies.

Our History

WCIU began in the fall of 1996. Pastor Emma Kiwanuka had just returned from two years of study for a master degree at Westminster Seminary in California. Emma’s heart was to begin a pastors training college to train men for ministry and leadership in the Presbyterian Church in Uganda and other churches.

Emma knew that effective training had to be strong in historic Reformed and evangelical theology, adapted well to the African cultural context, church-connected, open to students from various denominations and nations, led by African teachers and partnering wisely and creatively with western teachers and resources.

Our Philosophy

As a Christian institution, under the sovereignty of God and the leadership of Jesus Christ, through the empowering of the Holy Spirit, WCIU affirms that persons should have the opportunity to develop to their potentials; that education should stimulate a quest for truth, an appreciation for creativity, and an understanding of the wholeness of life; that career preparation should emphasize ethical consciousness and lifelong productivity and adaptability, and that the Christian perspective should help graduates to become catalysts for responsible change in society. We main that every experience must be evaluated or else, it becomes dangerous.

Our Purpose

The primary responsibility of Westminster Christian Institute Uganda is to educate men with God’s call to the pastorate and to teaching ministry. It also provides theological education for lay Christians, men and women, who will serve in the Christian community and larger society. WCIU offers instruction in theological, biblical and ministerial disciplines as the heart of program to help students to develop intellectually and spiritually as leaders.
