We affirm the ancient proclamation, “Christ is Lord.” We seek to honor Him in everything we do.
We treasure the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and are devoted to correctly handling the word of truth.
Evangelism and missions are the heartbeat of our seminary. Our strategy includes the training of persons from every national, ethnic and cultural background for a variety of ministries.
We value the church as God’s primary strategy for reaching the world. We expect students, faculty and staff to be active participants in the life of the local church. We want our students to appreciate the life and heritage of our denomination.
The basis of true leadership is character. We are consecrated to a life of spiritual growth and moral integrity. Christian values of obedience, faithfulness, perseverance, service and humility are shared and modeled by faculty, staff and students.
Relationships are essential for spiritual growth and effective ministry. We are committed to a community of faith in which mutually supportive relationships exist among students and faculty. We desire to model servant leadership that communicates love and compassion to all people.
We seek to provide the environment as well as the encouragement to enable students to discover and utilize their spiritual gifts. We expect excellence in studies and fields of ministry. We want our students to be known for personal discipline and innovation in ministering to a changing world.
Ministerial training is a lifelong process. We commit to provide learning experiences for ministers to update their skills.
The family, as the first divinely ordained institution in society, is both honored and sacred. As the primary arena for spiritual growth, within the family is where we learn of morality and values such as truth, gratitude, courage, forgiveness and sacrifice. And it is in the family that we first learn the appropriate way of relating to God and to humans, who are created in His image.
