From the President

Dear Student of the Word,

Today more than ever an accurate, balanced, and thorough knowledge of the Bible is necessary for you to help lead people to the Lord and strengthen believers in the church. Not only are cults and other groups with false teachings multiplying, but even in evangelical churches the gospel and the requirements of the Christian life are being watered down. The way to lead others in the truth is not primarily to be aware of the false ways, but to know the true teachings of the Bible, thoroughly and deeply, both with the mind and with the heart. This is the point of our seminary motto, “In Spirit and in Truth.”

“If the Lord is calling you to serve him as a minister,
a missionary, or a local church teacher or leader, then you must prepare yourself with
a theological education.”

If the Lord is calling you to serve him as a minister, a missionary, or a local church teacher or leader, then you must prepare yourself with a theological education. There is no easy way to do this. It will require months and years of sacrifice and study. But be assured that God will uphold you and provide for you and bless you richly as you follow his will.

As you peruse this catalog you will see the various programs of study. We are praying that one of them will be right for you. Open your heart to God’s leading. David asked, “Is there not a cause?” Certainly the cause for Christ is as great today as it was for him.

Yours in Christ’s service,

John A. Battle, President
