About Moore

Vision, Mission & Values

Moore College conducts it's activities within the framework of an approved vision, mission and values, underpinned by a five year strategic plan.  

Vision (what do we want to see as a result of what we do?)

We long to see faithful, thoughtful and biblical ministry which honours the Lord Jesus Christ in all the world. 

Mission (what do we plan to do to bring this vision to fruition?)

We enable men and women to deepen their knowledge of God, through higher education in the field of theology. This is so that they might faithfully and effectively live exemplary Christian lives, proclaim and teach the Word of God, and care for others in the name of Jesus Christ in all the world, to the glory of God.

Values (how do we conduct this mission?)

The College seeks to achieve its mission in a manner consistent with biblical values.

It is therefore committed to:

Christian Faith: Trust in God and his purposes as these are revealed in Jesus Christ and conveyed to us by the Holy Spirit in the canonical scriptures of the Old and New Testaments;

Integrity: Honesty, transparency, fairness and accountability in all personal behaviour and community practices;

Grace: Generosity and compassion in dealings with each other, reflecting the undeserved mercy of God in Christ;

Service: Placing the welfare of others above personal interests and convenience, using the gifts and talents that God has graciously given;

Community: Loving personal relationships, developed through regular meeting and a common focus, as the proper context for learning about the triune God and his purposes;

Scholarship: Rigour of thought characterised by a careful use of primary evidence, breadth of research and appropriate inferences, resulting in fresh and readily accessible approaches to both classic issues and contemporary questions;

Gender Complementarity: Affirmation of the fundamental equality and mutual dependence of men and women as image bearers of God, while recognising proper differences in roles and responsibilities in life and Christian ministry;

Freedom of Enquiry: The freedom to subject all ideas to honest inquiry; and

Integration: Growth in the knowledge of God is best conducted for, and in the context of, life application and active participation in Christian service.
