Our Mission Statement
Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary is an educational institution whose mission is to prepare students to serve Christ and His church through biblical, experiential, and practical ministry. The seminary purposes that such training be God-glorifying and in accord with the Scriptures and historic Reformed creeds for the promotion and defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In dependence on the Holy Spirit, we believe that this purpose is well-served by providing theological instruction and training to facilitate the development of knowledge and skills as well as personal piety and Christian character that is essential for faithful Christian ministry.
Seminary Training that is Biblical, Historical, Confessional, and Experiential
In keeping with the Reformed and Puritan tradition, we emphasize preaching the whole counsel of God as revealed in Jesus Christ, which entails preaching biblically, doctrinally, experientially, and practically. We believe that such preaching is God’s primary means to save sinners and to nurture His church in her most holy faith (Rom. 10:14–17).
All true scholarship serves piety. Such instruction calls for the wholehearted assent and childlike trust of faith in Christ that exercises divine graces such as repentance, love, and zeal for holiness. Academic instruction should promote personal meditation upon the Word and prayer, thus equipping students to nurture spirituality in every facet of their personal lives and ministry.
