NTM Christian College was founded by the late Founder of NTM as he pursued God’s call upon his life to bring people to Christ, baptise them and make them into disciples.
Since then NTM has planted a Bible College in most countries where we have established churches in order to train Christian Workers.
The Colleges are founded upon the vision of the great missionary Charles Cowman, to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread Christian Holiness to every creature in ever land. Charles Cowman believed that the great commission was best fulfilled through training local people to reach their own for Christ while also desiring to reach the world.
NTM Christian College was founded by Dr. Neil Thomas and Rev. Tom Griffiths in 1976. Previously known as Cowman College it commenced in 1977 with 11 full-time students in Belconnen ACT, Australia. Since then the College was renamed to NTM Christian College and relocated to Tullamarine Victoria, Australia, from which it has grown and spread to consist of the current seven colleges located in Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.
Since its initiation NTM Christian College has trained many men and women of all ages and backgrounds in the Truth of God’s Word equipping them to serve in many areas of ministry and ultimately calling them to fulfil Christ’s commission to make disciples of all nations.
In conjunction with NTM Churches and Ministries our colleges emphasis the doctrine of Christian Holiness and the Spirit-Filled life; witnessed in its motto:
“BE HOLY AS I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY” (1 Peter 1:16).
NTM Christian College desires that every student will also seek to REACH EVERY CREATURE with the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST, giving each person the opportunity to find forgiveness for their sin and the experience of living a HOLY LIFE before our HOLY GOD.
The College emphasises DISCIPLESHIP and COMMITMENT to the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Christian Holiness
