Seminary Focus

The School of Theology is a community dedicated to spiritual formation and growth of its students, faculty and staff for a life of service within God’s kingdom.  This commitment is grounded in our mission of biblical reconciliation.  To that end, we focus our work and life together on spirituality, scholarship, and service.

The emphasis on spirituality facilitates spiritual growth, the formation of distinct Christian values, and the integration of self within the pattern of a godly life that makes ministry meaningful and honest.

The scholarship emphasis seeks to encourage and equip individuals in their quest for knowledge of the content and meaning of the Scriptures, and the historical development of the Christian church and its faith, always promoting academic excellence in the pursuit of truth. The pursuit of scholarship is not simply for the sake of scholarship, but for informing a life of biblical reconciliation.

The service emphasis encourages our active participation in ministry and sharing, imperative for Christian life and witness.  This service may be in the wider church and society, but also is essential to our community life together.
