C.A.T.C. is an association of lutheran theological organizations with the objective of participating in a common activity of getting people to know Jesus.  Pooling their resources for achieving a common goal: to participate in the development of study programs and participate in exemplary faculty and staff development programs. This enables members the opportunity to leverage and pool their institutions’ respective resources to other members toward common goals.  


C.A.T.C. is dedicated to Christ-centered service to reach the community, the nation, and the world with the love and compassion of Christ.

We hope to empower students to transform the world for eternity. In faithfulness to our vision, nurture students through a well-rounded, academic program that will enable them to actualize their potential and prepare them to assume roles of leadership and influence.


Through our combined efforts towards Christian education, we pledge to cultivate student’s ethics and world view to act with integrity and honesty. They think, inquire, interact, reflect, strive and excel within and beyond our international curriculum framework.

  1. These partnerships focuses on helping colleges develop and implement degree programs that will be validated (ratified, recognized, made equivalent). Validate the academic degrees that each institution is conferring, so that they have the same meaning and value, one for the other.

  2. A student’s achievements in Brazil, will be recognized in South Africa, Kenya, or Puerto Rico.

  3. To create a common study format utilizing the Martin Davis studies as a foundation for everyone to agree and to build upon that.

  4. To reach an agreement between all parties in the curriculum that will be offered after that foundation.

  5. To be able to offer among all seminaries MA and PhD courses by extension at the thesis level. 

  6. Be able to endorse the degrees of each university/ seminaries among all the others.

  7.  To be able to offer M.A. and Ph.D. courses by extension and at the thesis level. 

  8. Create a brotherhood between teachers and students so that the academic / religious community grows. 

  9. To develop a fellowship between teachers and students so that the academic / religious community can thrive.



This course is a clear introduction to the Doctrine of the Holy Trinity. This doctrine is the fundamental basis for all Christian doctrines. In this course we learn how God reveals himself in his Son Jesus and in the sending of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus we learn that God is love.


This course explores the life of Jesus Christ, the Son of God from preexistence with the Father through his Birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension. The ministry of Jesus Christ is explored in relation to the Kingdom of God.



Discipleship is the fruit of union with Christ through the communion of the Spirit. Discipleship is analyzed in relation to faith, praise, prayer, the sacraments, the Christian life, and evangelism.



Referring to the scriptures called "Old Testament," Jesus said, "These are the scriptures that bear witness to me." This course identifies and examines many Old Testament passages that point to Jesus and lead us to a better understanding of “Who” Jesus Christ is.




This course explores the biblical doctrine of the Holy Spirit as expressed in the Old and New Testaments. Special attention is given to the role of the Holy Spirit in the knowledge of God with an emphasis on the divine person of the Spirit. The work of the Holy Spirit is explored in relation to the ministry of Jesus Christ. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are essential to the missionary work of the church. The role of the Spirit as mediator of communion is analyzed in detail.
