At Every Nation Seminary, every program and every course is relational, biblical, apostolic, and global.
We believe that every student is first and foremost a disciple of Jesus whose discipleship and leadership journey happens in the context of relationship—with God, the people of God, and the world. Therefore, at ENS, we desire to form deeply committed disciples of Jesus whose lives are marked by the lordship of Jesus (Christ-centered), the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (Spirit-empowered), and the compassion of the Father for the lost and the oppressed (socially responsible).
We believe that the Bible is the foundation of our theology and our practice, and that God uses the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe. Therefore, at ENS, we desire to form faithful and skillful preachers of the Word of God, whose preaching is saturated with the gospel (Christ-centered), empowered by the Holy Spirit (Spirit-empowered), and prophetically oriented towards their particular time, place, and people (socially responsible).
We believe that every leader should be called by God and sent on mission and should be actively sending others into mission. Therefore, at ENS, we desire to form servant leaders filled with holy ambition, whose leadership is marked by Christ-like humility (Christ-centered), Spirit-led decision-making (Spirit-empowered), and missional vision for their city, region, and world (social responsibility).
We believe that our call to every nation requires us to embrace a missionary mindset and cultivate a global perspective when studying theology, studying the Bible, and engaging in mission. Therefore, at ENS, we desire to form dedicated missionaries whose cross-cultural engagement is modeled on the incarnation (Christ-centered), empowered by the Holy Spirit (Spirit-empowered), and contextualized faithfully and appropriately for their particular culture (socially responsible).
In addition to adhering to the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Chalcedonian Creed, the faculty, staff, and board of Every Nation Seminary affirm and uphold the following articles of faith without reservation.
