History

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them… And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Mat 28:19’20)

STS is a Christian College which was established in East Malaysia in 1988 to train pastors, church workers and lay-Christians in response to Christ’s Great Commission.

STS is ideally located on a 10-acre site on Signal Hill adjacent to the centre of the busy city of Kota Kinabalu. Its serene, tree-lined surroundings offer a very conducive environment for meditation and the study of God’s word.

The facilities include an administration and teaching block, a chapel, lecturers’ apartments, students’ hostel, and a computerized library. The programme combines high academic standards in the study of theology with effective practical training in people-skills and Christian ministry within an Asian context.

A wide range of academic and practical courses are offered in Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin and English. The degree and M.Th. programmes are accredited by ATESEA.


The spiritual and personal development of students is encouraged through courses, worship, prayer and emphasis on community life.

The courses are taught by a team of local, overseas and visiting lecturers who combine academic excellence, practical ministry experience giving them a touch of international flavor! The continuing recruitment and training of local lecturers plays a key role in the development of STS.

The Seminary is interdenominational and is supported by a broad base of churches both in Malaysia and abroad and this is clearly reflected in the make-up of its students and lecturers.

STS is committed to a vision of biblically-based training programmes of a high standard for the equipping of all God’s People.
