Envisioning theological education for the next generation
God continues to work in and through SBC. We celebrate our platinum jubilee with the theme, “New Era, New Horizons”. We strongly believe that God, through his eternal Word, has been leading and shaping our community to envision the New Era of the post-pandemic world order as a New Horizon, enabling us to take on the formidable tasks ahead.
How does the College remain faithful to God’s mission after threescore and ten years? By the grace and mercy of God, and having like-minded people who are called to in this loving and worshipful community.
The ongoing global pandemic brought an abrupt halt to many things that we take for granted. Our faculty take stock of their engagement and service to and with the SBC community, the local churches and society at large.
SBC is a a faith-based seminary and a registered charity entity. Since our inception, we have kept theological education accessible, applicable and affordable. Students receive heavily subsidised course rates and scholarships.
God makes this possible by your partnership in the work – the financial, volunteering and prayerful support of many well-wishers and donors. Over 50% of our annual operating costs are covered through love gifts which come from individuals, local churches and Christian organisations.
Thankfully, many have given generously for the students’ needs and the College’s infrastructural development. At least 75% of the annual expenditure of the College goes to the salaries and welfare of those who work behind the scenes–the faculty who teach students and the staff who run the College. Please pray for this need. We welcome believers with different gifts, knowledge and skills to join us as volunteers or interns.

The eagle that rises up on its strong wings evokes Isaiah 40:28–31, where rejuvenation comes from waiting for the Lord. The sun as the source of light reflects how the Lord is the source of strength, power, and vision. The eagle and the sun together form the number 70 in recognition of the College’s anniversary. As people of God, we are urged to wait for our Lord, who will strengthen and empower us to fulfil his vision.
The College resolute to excel in theological education, spiritual formation, character building, and ministry development in this new era in the post-pandemic world.
