About Us

Statement of Faith
We commit ourselves wholeheartedly to God and accept fully the revelation, which He has given us in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.  We also identify ourselves with the faith of the Christian church as it has been expressed throughout history and is experienced around the world.  We accept the Statement of Faith of the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (AEA) as an expression of the crucial aspects of the Christian faith.

History

The Evangelical University, formerly Theological College of Central Africa – TCCA, is a private Christian accredited University that is intentionally residential. We exist as a ministry of the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ).

The university is a flagship of conservative evangelicalism in Zambia. It was the brain child of the Africa Evangelical Fellowship (AEF) who founded it in 1960 as the Bible College of Central Africa (BCCA) to mitigate the need for Bible taught preachers. On 25 September 1965, BCCA was officially commissioned.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) took ownership in 1980 to administer the institution as the Theological College of Central Africa (TCCA), out of the realisation of the need for quality, contextual, relevant, evangelical theological education in the rapidly growing Zambian Church. TCCA officially transitioned from college to university status in 2014 and the name change to Evangelical University was effected in 2015.
