Hello and welcome to FTA Theological Seminary. Here at FTATS, our mission is to offer students an affordable, high-quality Christian education that is flexible with regard to location and schedule. One of the first things people ask about is our theological persuasion or denominational affiliation. As you can tell from looking at our statement of beliefs, we are a conservative Christian school that embraces the bible in essential fundamentals while encouraging academic excellence, understanding, reason, and respectful discourse in the non-essentials. With regard to denominational affiliation, we have a diverse faculty representing many denominations. Our faculty consists of Apostolic Pentecostal and COGIC church members. We have Independent Jewish-Messianic believers, and many more expressions of the Christian Faith represented at our school
We believe that an institution of higher learning should teach its students how to think and not simply how to memorize and repeat. We do have a fundamental statement of faith to which all faculty and students agree and adhere. Beyond these basic and essential points of the Christian faith, however we leave for discussions and debate. It is not our goal to make students think alike or to believe the same thing. It is out goal to help to learn how think critically, valuate varying theological and philosophical perspectives, and communicate with scriptural and historical accuracy, integrity and clarity regarding different points of view yet arriving at divine logos.
