St Louis Theological Seminary

Rightly dividing the word of truth.

Mission and Purpose

Mission

The mission of St. Louis Theological Seminary, described as its purpose in the Bylaws when incorporated, is “to provide religious education and to train men and women for ministry service.”  In carrying out this mission and expressing our dispensational theology, STLTS’s primary focus is to equip Grace pastors and others to serve in Grace ministries.

Commission

Our commission is to be ministers of the word of reconciliation; to proclaim the gospel of the grace of God; to enlighten all to the dispensation of the mystery; and to follow the Apostle Paul in the revelation of the hidden truth that our Lord Jesus Christ, from glory, gave to him for us today (Romans 11:13, Romans 15:16; Galatians 1:11-12,2:7).

Local Assembly

It is the responsibility of all members of the body of Christ to meet together regularly in their local assemblies for worship, fellowship, and Bible study (Hebrews 10:25).

Purpose

The purpose of St. Louis Theological Seminary and Bible College is to glorify and exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and to present the Word of God as our absolute authority in all matters of our Christian walk. We take seriously the admonition of the Apostle Paul to Timothy, “and the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also" (2 Timothy 2:2).

Calling

Our calling is to instruct men and women from a dispensational view of the Scriptures and encourage them to “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth”  (2 Timothy 2:15). Our desire is to equip faithful men with the knowledge and tools to be effective ministers of the Gospel of the Grace of God.
