In our purpose of seeking to develop Christ-like servant-leaders who are committed to Christ and His Great Commission we shall seek to live out and uphold the following values:

Grace and Truth

While firmly founded on the truth found in the Scriptures, we want to relate to others graciously, extending to them the grace that we have received in Christ.

Individuality and Community

While we value each individual’s gifts, we value being able to live together and work together as a team with gifts that complement one another. We are happy to be part of a multicultural interdenominational community.

Growth and Stability

We appreciate that UBI is continually improving its facilities and programmes and that staff members and students continue to grow spiritually and academically. Though we value growth and change, we appreciate the heritage of the school and its traditions.

Excellence and Affordability

We want to serve churches and communities by providing excellent preparation for ministry but always in keeping with what is affordable.

IsiZulu and English

UBI’s niche is providing ministry training and publications in the isiZulu language while at the same time providing training to English speakers.
