Our Mission

We believe God's inerrant and infallible Word, the Bible, is the rule for all of life and faith, and the principal means by which the Holy Spirit transforms lives so that the Lord Jesus Christ might be glorified and adored.

We aim to train and mentor pastors and Christian workers who have a passionate love for the triune God and a solidly Reformed understanding of His Word.

Distinctives

  1. A passionate conviction that living for the glory of God as it has been revealed in the person of Jesus Christ is our main business in life.
  2. A Bible-centred education that seeks to cultivate an excellence in understanding the Scriptures and expounding them.
  3. A joyful affirmation of the Calvinistic Baptist tradition as it has been expounded by such figures as John Bunyan, Andrew Fuller, Isaac Backus, J.P. Boyce, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and such Canadian Baptists as R.A. Fyfe and D.A. MacGregor.
  4. An immersion in the classical disciplines of theological education.
  5. Hands-on mentoring and training through close links with local churches.
