Our Purpose

Providing Education and The Knowledge of God


Our Outlook

JILIU has become one of the most competitive Universities in Christian theological and vocational education that offers an integral and excellent formation, based on Christian values, established to develop the vocation or the call of God in a fast and efficient way in any of the five major ministries; Whose graduates are seen as competent ministers capable of leading others into deep social and spiritual transformations. JILIU has achieved international recognition as an institution of high prestige in teaching. 1st Corinthians 1: 26-27


Our Mission

JILIU's mission is to build up the Body of Christ and to form the New Testament Church so that it reveals the Kingdom of God in each of the segments of our society, that the Glory of God will cover the earth. JILIU is a pioneer of the modern model of vocational ministry development in the field of higher education for ministerial preparation. Ephesians 4: 1-4


Our Philosophy

JILIU was established under the foundation of Jesus Christ and the curriculum of our University is centered in the Bible. We believe that God has revealed Himself to humanity in the writings commonly known as the Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible. We believe that these are the necessary guide to resolve doctrinal issues and to direct the structure and mission of the Church. We share the basic philosophy that distinguishes Christian colleges and universities as distinctive institutions of education in today's world; we provide the knowledge of God as an investment of life on earth and into eternity.

Our Creed

That Jesus Christ is the Lord

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only Son of God. We believe in His death for every man, His resurrection, and His eventual return to earth to judge the world.


In Salvation

We believe that every man on earth is born with the nature of the original without and that the death of Jesus on the cross was to redeem him from the power of sin. We believe that salvation is available to everyone who creates and asks for it.


The Church

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ as the eternal and universal body that consists of all those who have accepted the redemptive work of Christ.


The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, the Spirit of Jesus who comes to dwell in the man who gives his heart to him through repentance. We believe in the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, in his Fruit and the gifts of the Spirit.


In Worship

We believe in worshiping the Lord through singing, applause and raising hands to heaven as a form of expression in humility to their performance.


The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God by inspiration of the Holy Spirit and the revelation of God's will for every man on earth. We believe in the authority of the Word of God to govern the affairs of men


Water Baptism

We believe in the ordinance of baptism in the waters by immersion in obedience to the Word of God for everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.



We believe that every man has stewardship over his life and the resources bestowed by God. We believe that tithes are a measure of obedience to the scriptural principles of stewardship.


Commitment to Israel

We believe in the promise of Genesis 12: 3 concerning the Jews and the Nation of Israel. We believe that this is an eternal covenant between God and the seed of Abraham to which God stands faithful. Reaching Your Dreams
