The College of Ministry builds upon the Educational Goals of the University expressed in the Core Curriculum requirements and the Biblical Studies Core. We recognize that all truth is God’s truth and that persons discover truth by reason, by scientific and aesthetic inquiry, and by revelation. The College of Ministry affirms that the Bible is God’s unique written revelation, and that the knowledge of biblical truth is the foundation of every genuine search for truth.
From a Pentecostal perspective that embraces the mission of Jesus announced in Luke 4, the College of Ministry values:
Biblical Exposition: the ability to interpret the Scriptures;
Theological Understanding: the ability to articulate the teachings of Christianity; and
Ministry Competence: the ability to practice biblical ministry.
The College of Ministry desires that all its graduates be persons who demonstrate a continuing interest in lifelong learning, and in the ability to apply truth to life; approach their own spiritual lives contemplatively and reflectively; and express a genuine connection to and a caring for the world.
