The three pillars of the College of Theology

Gospel Centered

At the core of the College of Theology's mission is the powerful message that Jesus, the Son of God, gave his life to reconcile men and women to the Father. The college offers a deeply focused theological education that is grounded in the biblical truth that God loved the world so much that he sent his one and only Son who died to save all who believe in him (John 3:16).

Church Focused

The gospel of Jesus Christ empowers those who follow Him to live life with one another in a community characterized by faith, hope, and love. The College of Theology trains leaders to faithfully live the message they teach and preach.

Missions Oriented

The driving concern of the College of Theology is to engage the world outside the walls of the church as salt and light just as Jesus commanded. The life giving message of Christ is the most precious gift we can offer to those who we encounter in life and in ministry, so we share the gospel in our neighborhood, across the nation, and around the world, and train our students to do the same.
