“To Trust Christ, To Live Christ, To Communicate Christ”

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to glorify God by equipping godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of His Word, the building up of the body of Christ, and to advance the cause of Christ by presenting the gospel of God’s amazing grace.

Purpose Statement:

Our purpose as a theological seminary is to serve as a catalyst and resource for spiritual transformation by providing advanced training for strategic ministry roles. We accomplish this through biblically based programs and services that have an appreciation of classical grace theology, “Faith Alone in Christ Alone.” 

Vision Statement:

Our vision is to partner with pastors, church leaders, and churches to advance the grace message and the training of servant-leaders for a variety of vocational and volunteer church-oriented ministries locally and worldwide.
