Manila Theological College was founded by a Missionary who was sent here in the Philippines by the Reformed Presbyterian.
Missionary Rev. Paulino C. Choi Ph.D, had undergone a long and ardent missionary journey and hard work for almost four years before he finally founded the Manila Theological College. He had conferred with the Commission On Higher Education for the college permission and recognition which were readily granted. In other words, the Manila Theological College was recognized by the Philippines government.

On June 13, 1988, Rev. Paulino C. Choi Ph.D., negotiated with the Department of Education Culture & Sports for the United Asian Missionary to be renamed United Asian Theological College. The move was endorsed by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports.
In 1989, the college was in the campus of the University of the Philippines in Losbanos, where the session studies of theological students of church workers from Manila and nearby provinces were conducted.
A year later, 1990, a school building was built for the college in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. In this building it continued its operation.
