From the inception of the vision for Faith Theological Seminary and Christian College, our President, Dr. George W. Walters, Jr., believed that the institution should have a four-fold purpose by providing the following:
- A. A basic foundation for beginning Christians in the Word of God to gain confidence in their relationship with the Lord.
- B. Training for service in the local church (whether for staff member or volunteer) as well as advanced training for older Christians to be able to provide support to the work of the ministry.
- C. A program to prepare people for ministry as they sense God’s call on their life.
- D. Advanced studies for the seasoned minister and the development of academic credentials for a life of ministry experience.
The educational training is focused on preparing and equipping the individual for religious vocations within the context of the local church, ministry opportunities outside of the church, and/or para-church organizations.
