THE MISSION

The mission of The New Testament (TNT)   AsChurch School of Theology as a post-secondary, Christian education school is to glorify God by equipping godly leaders for the Great Commission and providing for the work of the ministry with spiritual training.

As a community dedicated to fulfilling this mission to glorify the Father in the power of the Spirit, the Board, faculty, staff, and students commit to the cultivation of Christian doctrine, purity, and love consistent with the character and person of Jesus Christ.  As physical-spiritual image bearers of the Triune God, we aspire to be known for excellence and integrity in Christlikeness.  We commit ourselves to seeking the Spirit's wisdom and discernment through the study of Scripture as we seek to honor Christ in the following areas:

 

  • We commit ourselves to the biblical model of sexual purity expressed through either celibacy in singleness or fidelity in Christian marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman and to the standards of conduct set forth in the Bible.

 

  • We commit ourselves to maintain a non-prescriptive drug-free, alcohol-free, and tobacco-free environment with respect to all School facilities, events, and activities.
     

  • We further commit ourselves to carefully exercise Christian freedom with regard to the use of alcohol, guarding against the misuse of any substances that might abuse our bodies, foster addictions, or cause others to stumble.

  • We commit ourselves to build and live in community that encourages responsible care and stewardship of the human body and soul while personally reflecting Christian modesty, maturity, discretion and respect.

  • We commit, within the context of our theological convictions and mission, not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, age, national and ethnic origin, or disability, and to take active measures against discriminatory harassment, and sexual harassment, including any type of violence or misconduct.

  • As we strive toward these commitments, we acknowledge our weakness and our constant need for God's ongoing redemptive power expressed through his Spirit and fostered in the community of faith.  When breaches of these commitments occur, we encourage the practice of repentance, confession, pardon, correction, and redemptive discipline when necessary.
