The Andersonville Theological Seminary Philosophy

Holy BibleAndersonville Theological Seminary believes that actively serving God in the field is of greatest importance. To this end, we have developed a program of study that allows pastors, teachers, and counselors to earn their seminary degrees from their own homes while continuing to actively serve in the field.

Our program, however, has always been grounded upon the firm belief that in order to be useful to active Christians, it must be centered upon actual study of the Scriptures as God’s holy and infallible word. Therefore, ATS has placed a great emphasis upon exegetical and expositional Bible courses in all of its programs, often requiring students to go verse-by-verse through key books of both the Old and New Testaments.

Further, Andersonville holds that students must be properly and practically tested in each course to insure proper training of each student in our program. Such testing frequently includes multiple testing formats requiring students to illustrate their comprehension of course lectures, required readings, and Bible passages. And, in addition to all else, Andersonville has always required that the program be practical to real ministry in service of Christ. Therefore, every course offered by ATS, whether Greek or Pastoral Counseling, has passed the scrutiny of its faculty and staff, having been deemed necessary for thorough and complete training in the relevant major and degree program.
