Mission Vision Values

Why choose us?

MISSION

The mission of Triangle School of Theology is to provide quality and affordable theological education using various modalities of teaching and learning at the graduate level to prepare clergy and laity for training, vocation, and service in churches, Christian ministries, and the community to serve the global community.

VALUES


  • We believe that God’s word is central and foundational for all knowledge and wisdom and that the word of God is the catalyst for transformation.
  • We believe that for education to be effective, it must be both theoretical as well as practical in application.
  • We believe that the church is God’s vehicle for worship and world discipleship.
  • We believe that lost people matter to God and; therefore, ought to matter to us.
  • We believe that excellence in education honors God and inspires people.
  • We believe that Christian Education requires agape (love) as its foundation, koinonia (fellowship) as its building blocks, and mentoring interaction of the administration, faculty, student body, and community for Kingdom Building.
