History of NCCT

History of NCCT

The North Carolina College of Theology was founded by Dr. J. L. Cook in 2001. His goal was to educate men and women with the Word of God. We have accomplished this goal with thousands of students graduating and having successful ministries. Moving forward, in 2021 we divided The North Carolina College of Theology into two separate entities with The North Carolina Bible Institute carrying on as our correspondence institute. The curriculum remains the same with our vision and mission still being to educate men and women with the Word of God. The North Carolina Bible Institute will strive to reach the world, one student at a time.

Mission Statement

NCCT, a Christian institution, is equipping and empowering students within the world marketplace for Godly stewardship by preparing Christian servants who will become spiritually vibrant, Biblically strong, theologically balanced, Spirit-empowered, ministry-equipped and culturally sensitive.

Vision

NCCT, a Christian institution, is reaching the world for Jesus one student at a time, equipping them with Biblical sound knowledge, for effective leadership and servant-hood to impact the Church, marketplace and the world.

NCCT Institutional Goals

The following are the Institutional Goals in support of the NCCT mission and to guide faculty, staff, administration, and the governing board decisions as it may relate to strategic planning, resource capacity and allocation, and program development and quality. Student objectives and program learning outcomes are identified for each degree offering in support of NCCT’s mission. This first development of an IE plan is NCCT’s promise of serving the mission, committing to continuous institutional and program improvement, and enhancing quality and transparency within and outside of institutional borders.
