United Bible University, a non-denominational University, was founded on Saturday October 22, 1994, by Professor Augustus Olakunle Macaulay, an advocate of Christian religion, a theologian, a Bible Scholar, and a renowned Bible teacher. The university is the educational arm of Christian Soul-Winners Worldwide Inc. which was registered with the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
United Bible University is laden with the responsibility of providing higher educational opportunities for self-motivated achievers and practically seeks high educational qualities, ingenuity, creativity combined with thoroughness. Thus, the University is conscious that accomplished individuals with well-informed and flexible minds require an educational structure designed exclusively for practicing men and women of God.

As already mentioned, the University is a non-denominational higher institution that embraces all Christians irrespective of their race, nationality, colour, ethnic origin, sex, age, profession and status. United Bible University is not a place where people are trained to become Christians but rather, a place where Christian leaders are trained to elitism. In the college men and women of God are trained with efficiency, integrity and skill and sent forth to go and lead the world for Christ. Hence, we offer high quality, comprehensive and up-to-date Christian, biblical, theological programmes and 24 hours (around the clock) instructor support.

 
OUR MISSION:
United Bible University is committed to providing each student with access to a relevant, broad, balance, quality learning experience which promotes and develops Christian and theological education and social responsibility as lifelong activities. 
 
The vision and mission of United Bible University are spiritual, as such the courses are specially designed to build men and women of God. We abhor discrimination, nepotism, tribalism and anything that will make a man or group of people feel unwanted or unloved as our students are drawn from all walks of life, namely: mechanics, electricians, businessmen, doctors, nurses, lawyers, engineers, accountants, the military, police force, teachers, civil servants, church workers, house wives, et-cetera. We encourage the fulfillment of the law of God, which Jesus described as love for God and love for fellow human beings.
