About us


The Evangelical Bible College of Malawi is a Christian college that aims at training Christian men and women in the knowledge of the Lord and of the Scriptures, together with other relevant subjects, with a view to providing suitable leaders and workers for the Christian Church.


An evangelical Christian community in Malawi led by vibrant, mature, biblical servant-leaders who are fully equipped to impact the church and the world for the furtherance of Christ’s kingdom and glory.


Evangel denotes the gospel or good news of the kingdom of God and of salvation. We are committed to the divine mandate to declare the whole gospel of reconciliation to the whole world believing that the gospel effectively communicated to make sense within the cultural context is God’s vehicle that brings people to faith. The word “evangelical” has its root in evangel.

These three components are crucial to any Christian leadership formation without which ministry is reduced to just a religious activity. Thus, we seek to equip Christian leaders to think biblically, pursue godliness and do God’s work with God’s given capacities.

We are committed to transformational teaching in order to equip leaders who will build transformed and transforming communities. We shape leaders to shape their world for Christ.

We strive for the unity of the Spirit and seek to live and work in an environment characterised by tolerance, sensitivity and openness in order to create a strong community life among faculty, staff and students. Unity within EBCoM’s multiethnic, multicultural and multinational community is essentially crucial for the accomplishment of the college’s purposes of existence.

The word “minister” means “servant.” We are committed to developing servant-leaders who will serve God’s people and not lord over them. The whole essence of Jesus’ leadership and, in fact, his life was to serve. He unselfishly gave himself to this goal, and his life culminated in death on the cross. He humbly and sacrificially served unto death, and we desire to produce ministers like him.

Students' testimonies

“When I was a student at EBCoM, when it came to pastoral training, for me, I felt I learned what being a pastor actually involved. This has helped me greatly since I have been ordained in the Zambezi Evangelical Church.”
Rev. Winston Chidzambuyo
Minister, Zambezi Evangelical Church
“There were a number of differences between life at secondary school and life at EBCoM. I have learned so much at EBCoM. My life changed.”
