Our Purpose

Statement of Purpose

As given by Dr. Harold Vick,
founder of Jacksonville Theological Seminary

Jacksonville Theological Seminary is committed to the purpose of training, educating and equipping believers for a lifetime of productive service to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

Our courses are centered on the Bible, which we believe to be the Word of the living God. Our endeavor is to create a hunger for His Word and a proficiency in the declaration of the Gospel through proper communicative skills.

Our courses of the Bible, Christian Business, Christian Counseling, Christian Education, Divinity, Evangelism, Ministry, Religious Education, Theology, and Worship Leadership give a strong foundation from which the Gospel will be proclaimed.

All Jacksonville Theological Seminary degrees are of an ecclesiastical nature, and whether granted or conferred, are in the restricted area of ministry “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12); and are not designed to be used in secular academic circles. The degree programs of this Seminary are designed solely for religious vocations.

JTS accepts credits from all schools compatible in mission and doctrine and, in addition, will offer credit for service in the ministry, work related fields, church study courses, workshops, and seminars attended.

We are proud to be a part of JTS and we consider JTS more than comparable to any other Seminary – anywhere! We are excited that you are considering becoming a student. Let us know if we can be of assistance to you in any way. Like you, we are servants.
