What is ABTC?


 The African Bible Training Centre is a ministry dedicated to helping people understand, enjoy and apply their Bibles.

We seek to come alongside local churches by providing an intensive Bible training programme that will equip their members to serve more effectively in various ministries.


Over the past several years we have developed a multi-level training programme that is designed to give students an overview of the entire Bible and a better understanding of key biblical doctrines.

The goal of our programme is very simple.

We want to help students love God more by helping them listen to God as He speaks through His Word.

We seek to do that by helping students understand how the Bible works and what the Bible is about so that they will be equipped to benefit from it in their personal study and so that they will be equipped to explain the Bible better to others.

To accomplish that, we've purposefully designed our courses to be rigorous. But the efforts students make will be well worth it, because students will come to understand both the contents and theology of the entire Bible.


Old & New Testament Overview (OT1 & NT1)

The overview course gives you a firm foundation about each book of the Bible, the key theological themes, and how each book fits into the bigger picture of Scripture.

Theology (Th1)

The Systematic Theology class is designed to teach you the fundamental doctrines found in Scripture, give you a firm foundation and understanding of biblical theology, and explain how it relates to the Christian life.


The courses will be presented on the first Saturday of each month. Therefore there are 11 classes per year.

Class will run from 8:00 am - 17:00 pm.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Venue: 327 Hilda Street, Hatfield, Pretoria

(St Columbus, Presbyterian Church facilities. This is where Living Hope Church is currently renting and they are allowing us to use the facilities to present the ABTC courses)


What will be required of you for these courses?

  • Students are required to read the relevant books in preparation for each class
  • Students are required to listen and watch additional resources as indicated throughout the course
  • Students will be tested through various quizess and assignments. Study guides are given for preparation purposes

The student will also enjoy interaction with the lecturer and fellow students to make the lessons clear and applicable to the African context.

We look forward to having you join us in 2018!
