Nito Theological College, Nito Mount, Zunheboto (NTC) enjoys a unique history going back to 1949, especially in the hearts of all those Ministers in Sumi Baptist Churches who studied at NTC. It opened its door in 1949 under the patronage of an American Mission Baptist Foreign Missionary Society. The College as it stands today traces back its origin to Aizuto (some 35 km from Zunheboto town) under Rev. Bengt. I. Anderson, an American Missionary as a vernacular school. From its inception as Aizuto Vernacular Bible Training School to its up-gradation to different medium of studies, NTC has had various change of names like Leadership Training Institute (LTI) in 1987, Bible Training Institute (BTI) in 1988, Nito Theological Institute (NTI) in 1997. In the process, the College also moved to its present location at Nito Mount, Zunheboto in 1997. The relocation of tutelage also took place from the American Baptist Missionaries to the Sumi Baptist Akukuhou Kuqhakulu- Sumi Baptist Churches Association (here after, SBAK). With time the need to emphasize on intellectual value deepened and the need for change in ministries led to the upgradation of the vernacular institute to a Full-Fledged English Medium theological college under the name “NITO THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE” in 2004. The college received its first batch in the summer of 2005 and since then have been receiving and sending out Cross bearers in to the Lord’s mission. With the turn of this century, an emphasis on the intellectual value deepens, there was an urgent need by the Church leaders to upgrade the standard of Church Leadership. That was soon taken care, by way of upgrading this vernacular Institute into a Full-Fledged English medium Theological College under the name “NITO THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE” in 2004. The college received its first batch in the summer of 2005 and since then have been receiving and sending out Cross bearers in to the Lord’s mission.
