Tyrannus Online Seminary was birthed from the vision of one man, Professor Dr Paul Cheng, who desired to see lay Christians have the opportunity to be theologically trained to handle the Word of God in order to be equipped to serve the Church. It is a non-profit and non-denominational organization whose goal is to provide theological education online to Christian working adults through a flexible learning mode. Tyrannus Online Seminary Sdn Bhd was established on 28th October 2014 with the Company Commission of Malaysia (CCM/SSM) and changed its status to Tyrannus Online Seminary Bhd on 4th March 2015. It is currently run by a Board of six members who come from various denominations. Dr Anthony Loke was engaged as a consultant principal from April to November 2017 to spearhead and launch the seminary. Tyrannus will be seeking full accreditation with the Asia Theological Association (ATA) for its diploma and degree program.
For many working people, physically locating oneself or with your family to a seminary to study for 3-4 years can be disruptive and costly. There are other alternatives like studying for the Theological Education by Extension (TEE) Programs which are conducted by some seminaries or doing an online course from overseas.
Or you can sign up with us to study online. What we offer is a theological program through blended learning, flexi mode, self-paced, and affordable cost. From the comfort of your own home or office, you can study and be equipped with the BTh which is a basic theological degree. While it may take a little longer to complete than a full-time 3-4 year theological program, at the end of the day you will be able to graduate with a BTh.

As followers of Jesus, we are commanded to engage in apologetics, which is the study of how to provide a defense (apologis) to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Pet 3:15). In this course, students will be equipped with various apologetic methodologies and gain exposure to both historical and contemporary challenges to the truth of the Christian faith.
