Mission & Values

Our Mission
Rooted in the Wesleyan tradition
and committed to inspiring passion for ministry
in diverse Christian bodies,
Saint Paul School of Theology
educates leaders
to make disciples for Jesus Christ,
renew the church,
and transform the world.

Our Values
We believe that our mission is in faithful response to the call of
Christ Jesus to preach the Good News,
to care for those who are in need of
healing, and to set at liberty those who are oppressed.
This learning community is founded on the revelation of God
disclosed in the witness of Scripture, and the life of the church,
rooted in the Wesleyan and United Methodist traditions,
and lives and works in the context of the ecumenical church
and with people of other religious traditions.

We believe that holistic formation for ministry and mission
happens in the context of a worshipping Christian community
which models the interconnectedness of all life
by its participatory decision-making processes and
corporate life.

As an educational community we are committed to pluralistic,
functional teaching and learning across geographic divides,
emphasizing interdisciplinary studies and a diversity of
perspectives toward a goal of preparing leaders with
theological integrity.

We believe that this theological education must include rigorous
scholarship, lifelong learning, integrated reflection/practice, and
a global outlook.

Focus of Ministry
We are committed to providing theologically informed and
competent leadership for the local church and for the church at
large through the preparation of both clergy and laity, and
through the corporate witness and service of the seminary.

This ministry should be characterized by prophetic vision,
caring presence, and inclusive evangelism.
