Mission Statement

The Mission of Southwest Georgia Theological Seminary is to help our students develop two capabilities:

  • A mind for Biblical Scholarship
  • A heart for the Gospel

This mission will be accomplished through these avenues: By discovering truth through the lens of Scripture, by developing their potential for Christian Service and by conforming to the image of Christ.

Our purpose is to further the great commission by preparing and equipping Christian Ministers and Teachers (men & women) who, within diverse denominations are Biblically and Theologically responsible, professionally competent, intellectually astute, spiritually mature and deeply committed to serving our generation by sharing the Good News of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Consistent with the truth that God’s grace and His love through Jesus Christ extend without partiality to all mankind, SGTS admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin. We are committed to bringing Theological training to all those who seek our help, making a Christian Education affordable and attainable. SGTS has the right to expel any student, faculty, or board member, that fails to follow the guidelines of moral conduct set forth in the student handbook.

MOTTO: Equipped To Serve


1. We believe the Bible, the Holy Scriptures, to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God in the original text and altogether sufficient in themselves as our only rule of faith and practice, accepting fully the writings of both the Old (in the Masoretic Text) and New Testaments (in the Textus Receptus) as the very Word of God.

2. We Believe there is one God, eternally existent in three person; Father, Son and Holy Ghost. .........Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14

3. We believe that the universe originated by the creative act of God, in a six day literal creation, as revealed in Holy Scripture, and that the form of every kind of life was fixed at the time of its creation. .........Genesis 1:1

4. We believe in the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin, birth, in his sinless life, in His shed blood, in His bodily resurrections, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His visible return to earth in power and glory........Colossians 1: 13-20

5. We believe that all men are lost and sinful, and that salvation is received by the grace of God through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and by the regeneration of life by the Holy Spirit. .........Romans 3:23; Titus 3:5

6. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit as established in the Bible. ..........John 17:20-23; I Corinthians 12:12-13

7. We believe that support and participation in the task of fulfilling the Great Commission is the responsibility of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. .........Matthew 28: 19-20

The mission and beliefs provide the framework of our entire educational program.  Everything we do as an institution, no matter how great or small must be consistent with these foundational beliefs.
