Alphacrucis College is Australia’s first Pentecostal higher education institution to be registered as a University College, and one step closer to realising its ultimate goal.

College President Professor Stephen Fogarty says its “vision is to become a global Christian University, transforming neighbourhoods and nations.”

He told Eternity News that vision began over 70 years ago.

Alphacrucis started as a small Bible college in 1948 to provide training for ministers from the Australian Christian Churches denomination.

Ever since, it has been on a growth trajectory, expanding its teaching and research capacity.

It’s now the largest Protestant tertiary education provider in the country with no intention of slowing down.

The College currently has 4000 students enrolled around Australia in  degrees across Business, Education, Counselling, Ministry and Theology.

The main campus is in Parramatta with others in all capital cities and Auckland.

It also hosts 6 research centres.

Alphacrucis means the brightest star in the Southern Cross.
