Mission & Philosophy

Our Mission

We believe that God’s mission for the Evangelical Episcopal University and Seminary is to know Christ and make Him known “to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

Led and empowered by the Spirit of Christ, we believe that God calls us to flesh out the Good News of Jesus Christ in our personal and corporate lives and to equip believers to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to bring quality biblical and historical education to God’s people to equip them in their personal lives, to strengthen the local church and to carry the message of God’s redeeming love in Christ into all the world.

To accomplish this we commit ourselves to:

Know Christ as our life and source by:

  • Cultivating Christian maturity and spirituality
  • Teaching the spiritual disciplines
  • To seek to understand how God has worked through history
  • To search the Holy Scriptures

To make Him known to the “ends of the earth” by:

  • Equipping Students to effectively know the Gospel
  • Equipping Students to effectively share the Gospel
  • Providing practical knowledge of hands on ministry
  • Providing both short and long term Mission Internships
  • Encouraging the release of new ministries
