Essential Doctrinal Commitments (for Seminary students and staff)

While our faculty and board annually affirm their agreement with the full doctrinal statement (below), students need only agree with these seven Christian essentials:

  1. the Trinity
  2. the full deity and humanity of Christ
  3. the spiritual lostness of the human race
  4. the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ
  5. salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone
  6. the physical return of Christ
  7. the authority and inerrancy of Scripture.
