The Whys and Whats of TMS?
Periodically we review the purpose, educational, and mission statements for TMS. This way, we can stay focused on our founding ideals. Perhaps you have not seen or even forgotten these defining priorities for TMS, so we include them here in the current edition of The Master’s Dividend.
TMS Purpose Statement
The Master’s Seminary exists to advance the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping godly men to be pastors and/or trainers of pastors for excellence in service to Christ in strategic fields of Christian ministry. This is to be accomplished through an educational program and an environment of spiritual fellowship and relationships which emphasize unreserved commitment to the worship of God, submission to the authority of the Scriptures, a life of personal holiness, the priority of the local church, and the mission of penetrating the world with the Truth.
TMS Educational Statement
At The Master’s Seminary we offer theological education that is centered in the inerrant Word of God, sustained by scholarly study and research, nurtured in discipling relationships and ministry experiences, characterized by personal growth, and directed toward effectiveness in evangelism and edification. Here you will find seminary training that majors on personal holiness, exegetical study, and biblical theology and does so right in the context of a vital local church.
TMS Mission Statement
“We Train Men as if Lives Depended on It.”
For God’s glory,
Richard Mayhue, Th.D.
