Overview

The department goals are:

  • to provide all students with general biblical and theological literacy and specifically with an understanding of the general content of biblical and theological truth in the Reformed tradition;
  • to provide ways to arrive at that truth and its relevance for the Church and society;
  • to apply to all students, and specifically Biblical Studies majors and minors, biblical and theological truth as the mold which transforms their heart, renews their mind, and shapes their lives;
  • to fit them with the lenses necessary for a biblical world- and life-view that paves the way to Kingdom activity in the Church and society;
  • to equip them with the biblical rationale for all their culture-related activities beginning with their understanding and appreciation of education from the perspective of the Christian faith;
  • to acquaint biblical studies majors and minors with the problems connected with biblical scholarship and the content of the Gospel over against the belief systems of the modern scene;
  • to empower them with an effective means to communicate the Christian faith in the contemporary scene and to develop a biblically-based apologetic for that faith;
  • and specifically, to urge students with apparent qualifications and gifts for the ministry of the Gospel, whether in the United States or abroad, to consider the possibility of such calling.
