From its beginning, the Pentecostal Theology Seminary has followed a model for ministerial development drawn from the Scripture to conform to the nature of the church as established in the Holiness-Pentecostal heritage of the Church of God. It continually strives to insure that all relationships, processes, and structures of the Seminary are governed by the biblical standards for God’s people. The Seminary seeks to conceptualize and approach these standards with theological integrity using the same methods of discerning, critical reflection and action being taught to the students. It is the vision of the Seminary that all institutional endeavors must honor and strengthen its existence as a Pentecostal community of faith. The administration, faculty, staff, and student body share regular times of fellowship and worship.
The mission of the Pentecostal Theological Seminary is to prepare men and women for Christian ministry in today’s world. The Seminary is dedicated to carry out this task as an act of obedience to God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Seminary is committed to the absolute authority of Scripture and to the Holiness-Pentecostal interpretation of the Christian faith as set forth in the Declaration of Faith of the Church of God. The Seminary seeks to be a community of faith, worship, and study, nurturing covenantal relationships and creating awareness of the world mission and global diversity of the Church. It is the intention of the Seminary to help students integrate life and learning in such a way that they may acquire the maturity and professional competency needed to carry out the mission of the Church in the world. As a denominationally sponsored institution, the Pentecostal Theological Seminary is fully committed to the spiritual, doctrinal, and ministerial emphases of the Church of God and is firmly dedicated to educating and serving its ministry.
