AIGS Dean's Greeting

Shalom in Christ!

Welcome to ACTS University renowned for its missional legacy and global vision.

As the cornerstone of ACTS community, AIGS (ACTS University, International Graduate School) was established in 1974 to train Christian leaders from Asia and other nations for the evangelization of their own nations and beyond.

Our goal is to nurture and assist our students to build up Christian integrity, incorporating biblically sound theology into personal and ministerial life for the evangelization of the nations. We aim to produce Christ-minded servants with academic excellence and spiritual maturity, who would challenge and transform the world with the reality of the kingdom of God.

As an international community representing diverse nations from Asia, Africa, Americas, Europe, and the Middle East, AIGS offers an invaluable opportunity for students to interact among a variety of cultures and to understand the larger scope of God’s kingdom. Here, the students are nurtured through the dynamics of theological reflection, worship experience, community fellowship, and ministry outreach.

Our campus, with its nature's surrounding and riverfront view, provides a wonderful environment for cultivating both academic and spiritual life. Moreover, spiritual retreats, academic forums, mission conferences, and cultural festivals are regularly scheduled to help enhance the students’ personal and social growth.

So I would like welcome you to our AIGS community as we endeavor to study and grow together as fellow servants in the kingdom of our Lord.
