UGST Mission Statement
The mission of the Urshan Graduate School of Theology shall be to provide training, development, advanced studies, and a research center for men and women of the apostolic faith worldwide to further them for Christian service.
The Urshan Graduate School of Theology teaches that the new birth described by Jesus Christ in John 3 and declared by Peter in Acts 2:38 is essential for New Testament conversion. We believe that the one God of the Old Testament became incarnate in Jesus Christ.
We believe in the infallibility of the Scripture. We believe that God, who is holy, calls each of us into relationship with Him. We believe in covenanting with a community of believers, to pursue God’s holiness and to live in the power of the Spirit, anticipating the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Urshan Graduate School of Theology will serve the United Pentecostal Church International and the apostolic movement by providing training and individual leadership development for preachers, teachers, pastors, missionaries, chaplains, and various specialized ministries.
In order to effectively discharge these responsibilities, the objectives are:
To develop men and women who are able to effectively evangelize those who do not know Jesus Christ, and who are prepared to disciple saints through their teaching, counseling, and caring
To cultivate a spiritual environment to further develop individuals of integrity, who will integrate into their lives moral, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional wholeness
To embrace the biblical mandate for global mission, fostering a burden without limitation in culture, gender, or ethnicity
To serve as a center for graduate and continuing education through on-campus and distance-learning opportunities
To serve as a scholarly resource for the exploration and proclamation of the apostolic faith
To proactively explore the needs of an ever-changing world, working to develop innovative ministries that effectively proclaim the gospel while preserving apostolic doctrine and practice for future generations.
