It's the purpose of Southern Evangelical Seminary to develop competent Christian leadership and service through quality graduate programs. Central to this purpose is the provision of a biblical basis along with an academic understanding of our commitment to Jesus Christ. This education enables the learner to fulfill his or her personal and professional goals as a Christian leader and as an active citizen in the society in which we live. The infallibility and inerrancy of the Scriptures, the importance of the Church, and the ability to communicate and defend the Christian faith are fundamental elements to this purpose.
The purpose of Southern Evangelical Seminary will be carried out in keeping with the following precepts:
Education Based on the Inerrant and Infallible Word of God: Although many other texts and reference materials will be used in classes, the final authority will be the Bible which we hold to be God’s written revelation of His will and direction for life and service.
