For nearly 100 years, Carey Baptist College has been inspiring world-changers like you through our distinctive and innovative approach to theological education. Studying with us will transform you from the inside out, deepen your understanding, widen your perspective and energise you to make a difference in your community, your way.
Carey is one of New Zealand’s leading theological colleges. Since 1926 we have been training Christian leaders to bring gospel renewal in churches and communities across Aotearoa and around the world. With a campus in Auckland, regional hubs throughout New Zealand, and a vibrant online programme, you can journey with Carey wherever you’re located.
While Carey belongs to the Baptist churches of New Zealand, we serve all the churches of New Zealand, offering a range of NZQA qualifications in the areas of Bible, theology, ministry, and mission. Along with these, we provide a world-class leadership formation programme for those who have a calling to pastoral or missional leadership. Through our Centre for Lifelong Learning, we also provide a suite of resources to support the professional development of Christian leaders.
At the heart of our training is a deep commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ and its power to transform you and your world. A journey with Carey will equip you to participate in the gospel’s transforming work, wherever you’re called. You will gain a new vantage point from which to see more clearly the riches of our faith, the realities of our context, and the rhythms of Christian life and leadership today.
By integrating God’s word, God’s world, and God’s work, and by learning with others in a dynamic and supportive community, you will be transformed. You’ll acquire the biblical knowledge, the practical skills, and the spiritual integrity to be a faithful disciple and an effective leader. As a college, we celebrate the bicultural heritage and cultural diversity of Aotearoa New Zealand. We welcome all peoples, all cultures. Journey with Carey and be equipped and transformed.
