|Mission Statement: Calvin Theological Seminary exists to serve the Christian Reformed Church in North America and wider constituencies by preparing persons for biblically faithful and contextually effective ministry of the Word and by offering Reformed theological scholarship and counsel.|
Communicating the good news of the Gospel in today’s world requires that you’re theologically prepared and practically equipped. We give you both through a strong academic program coupled with comprehensive field education. In other words, you learn, and you live what you learn.
When you do, you help us fulfill our mission – to prepare people to lead in ministry, to give them what they need to respond to the Holy Spirit’s call throughout their lives, to bring nations to Christ, build His church, and extend God’s kingdom.
Our professors use a rich variety of academic, professional, and personal gifts to train men and women for effective ministry. They invest themselves personally in helping you develop your God-given gifts in ways that promote spiritual maturity and integrate faith and life.
To prepare you for visionary leadership in the church and world, we offer courses of study in preaching, worship, leadership, educational ministry, youth ministry, missions and church growth, as well as pastoral care and counseling. We supplement your course work with supervised ministry opportunities in our field education programs.
In each of these areas, we teach from a scripturally Reformed position. We are committed to the Bible as God’s Word and to the confessional standards of the Belgic Confession (1561), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), and the Canons of Dort (1618-1619) as faithful interpretations of that Word. This perspective enables our students to interact with – and effectively speak to – a broader ecumenical Christian community and a postmodern world.
Calvin Theological Seminary has been equipping people to envision their participation in the Kingdom of God since 1876. We will continue to do so for the glory of God.
