The mission of the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary is to educate students who love the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word, equipping pastors for the ministry of the gospel and preparing others in the church for effective service in His kingdom, all within the framework of the historic Reformed faith.
The founding purpose of the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary was to train pastors for the Gospel ministry within the sponsoring denomination. This fundamental purpose remains unchanged in the twenty-first century.
As God has provided opportunity, the mission of the Seminary has expanded to include the training of men and women from many Reformed and evangelical churches, and from various cultures and nations, for a variety of ministries, including missions, nouthetic counseling, Christian education, youth and campus work, and other specialized fields of service.
Our instruction is guided by the theology and practice of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, a denomination which wholeheartedly embraces the historic Reformed faith, while stressing Christ's Kingship over every area of life.
Our training emphasizes scholarship in Biblical studies, systematic theology, and church history; the cultivation of personal godliness and interpersonal skills; and the development of spiritual gifts — all with a vision for discipling the nations of the world.
Our educational setting is a multicultural urban environment, which provides both challenges and opportunities for ministry. Because the redemptive grace of God is the basis for ultimate answers to the personal and interpersonal problems around us, our ministry presents a message of reconciliation to God and to one another through the Prince of Peace, our Lord Jesus Christ.
