African Christian University (ACU)
African Christian University (ACU) was initiated from a vision of seeking knowledge derived from a foundation of God’s grand narrative of Scripture, and from that foundation embracing the breadth of all history and cultures to develop the expanse of the humanities and the sciences with a particular relevance to Africa – historically, presently and for the future
The Unique Emphasis of The Biblical Worldview
Dr. Conrad Mbewe explains the major difference between the Christian and African worldview. The African Christian University places a unique emphasis on the Christian worldview while remaining relevant to the needs and challenges of the African context.
ACU-USA Board Members
We thank God our Father from whom all blessings flow for raising up these servants of Jesus and equipping them for the leadership and direction of African Christian University for His purpose and to His glory. May He grant divine wisdom as the Board seeks to obey His Word in all things.

African Christian University
The first years of all of ACU’s Degree Programmes continue to lay a biblical foundation in a semi-Classical manner from an African cultural context emphasising the cultural mandate fulfilled in Christ’s redemption. Studying the breadth of the humanities and sciences across history and cultures affords a gymnasium for the exercise of discernment from application to all aspects of life.
School Of Divinity
The need for sound, gospel-centered, indigenous theological education in sub Saharan Africa is as great as the continent is vast, and ACU School of Divinity will help meet that need. ACU School of Divinity is a strategic work with the potential for both local and global impact for the cause of Christ. If this is the kind of education you seek, we welcome you to join us.
“The tremendous demand across Africa for higher education must be noted by the church and capitalized upon as a vehicle through which the full redemptive narrative of the Scripture can be proclaimed and applied.”
– Dr Ken Turnbull, ACU-USA Board Member
“When ACU is in full bloom, glorifying God in full view of the whole world of higher education, I don’t want to say ‘I knew about it; I heard a few announcements at church.’ Rather, I want to say ‘I was a part of it from its humble beginnings!’ My hope is that more than a handful of young people and their proud parents, guardians or sponsors will be able to say that too.”
– Dr Celstine Musembi, Vice Chancellor
“Christians should not be confounded by the idea of a Classical, Christian, Liberal Arts university; they should be confounded by the idea of anything else! How dare we deign to teach any subject from a “secular” perspective? How dare we teach mathematics or biology, or literature as though God has no say in the matter?”
– Dr Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology
