The authority of Scripture. The Bible is the final authority in all we do and teach. We hold to the historic, evangelical doctrines of the church. The Bible is the central part of the curriculum, and the foundation of all courses taught. It is vital that students learn proper interpretation for a lifetime of learning and ministering the Word.
The glory of God. We seek to bring glory to God through personal integrity, and by striving for excellence in all we do, including maintaining high academic standards. The Bible is to be taught by spiritually mature teachers and should lead to transformed lives.
The centrality of the local church. We partner with local churches as the primary “institution” for equipping leaders. We are committed to pastors being mentors to the students, believing training is to be IN ministry, not just for ministry. Our labors are for the benefit the church. It is the source of our workers and funds, and to whom we are responsible as good stewards.
The goal of service. The people of God are called to serve. A student is not fully prepared for ministry without developing certain practical skills necessary for ministry. Effective ministry also requires an understanding of the culture and times in which we serve.
