The Highest University in the Land - 24

Our journey now brings us to the jewel in the UHI crown - The Highland Theological College (HTC).

Welcome to Highland Theological College UHI – a partner college within the UHI network. Highland Theological College UHI offers you the opportunity to study theology courses at all levels either on-campus or by distance learning.

Highland Theological College UHI exists to provide opportunities for men and women to study the Christian faith, on a full-time, part-time or open learning basis, from an evangelical and Reformed perspective, in the context of a worshipping community.

HTC is evangelical and Reformed in its constitution and teaching and has Westminster Confession of Faith as its subordinate standard.

The Basis of Faith of the Company [Highland Theological College Ltd] and of the members is as follows:

Believing that there is but one only, the living and true God, and that there are three persons in the godhead, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and that these three are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory and with solemn awareness of accountability to him in all that we feel, think, say and do, we engage in and subscribe to this declaration:

All Scripture is self-attesting and being truth requires the human mind wholeheartedly to subject itself in all its activities to the authority of Scripture complete as the Word of God standing written in the sixty-six books of the Holy Bible, all therein being verbally inspired by Almighty God and therefore without error;

Reformed Theology set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms is the system of doctrine taught in Scripture and, therefore, is to be learned, taught and proclaimed for the edification and government of Christian people, for the propagation of the faith and for the evangelization of the world by the power of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We have a gospel to proclaim
Good news for men in all the earth;
The gospel of a Saviour’s name:
We sing His glory, tell His worth.

Tell of His birth at Bethlehem,
Not in a royal house or hall
But in a stable dark and dim:
The Word made flesh, a light for all.

Tell of His death at Calvary,
Hated by those He came to save;
In lonely suffering on the cross
For all He loved His life He gave.

Tell of that glorious Easter morn:
Empty the tomb, for He was free.
He broke the power of death and hell
That we might share His victory.

Tell of His reign at God’s right hand,
By all creation glorified;
He sends His Spirit on His Church
To live for Him, the Lamb who died.

Now we rejoice to name Him King:
Jesus is Lord of all the earth.
This gospel message we proclaim:
We sing His glory, tell His worth.
