A Message from The President
“Sacramento Theological Seminary and Bible College (S.T.S.) is dedicated to the purpose of teaching biblical theology to equip men and woman with skills to become efficient within the field of labor that God has called them to. We believe everyone, regardless of his or her previous educational achievement, should have an opportunity to receive a biblical education. At S.T.S., students are taught that God has preserved His Word without error and that it should be preached throughout all nations for the purpose of salvation for all. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye there, and teach all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo,
I am with you always even to the end of the World.” An education from S.T.S. will allow you to fulfill that command with knowledge and confidence. Our goal and purpose at S.T.S. is to enlighten and instruct students in the Bible and church-related studies. We are admonished according to II Timothy 2:15 to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” I have yet to see a Seminary graduate who has applied themselves to study and has had difficulty in preparing a sermon or unable to speak on any given subject as it relates to the Bible. For many years I thought the Seminary was a place where one went to become a preacher or priest. In September of 1998 when I started my Seminary education, in the first few weeks emphasis was placed on “receiving a degree”. I thought back then that Seminary was a place to receive a degree.
However, after a few years of staying up late hours in the night, going back and forth to libraries searching and researching for answers, I finally realized that Seminary is a place for learning. Edward L. Thorndike, a pioneer in studying learning, said, “Seminary is a place for instruction, training, or development.” I might add that the Seminary does not create preachers! Matthew 20:16 says, “For many are called, but few chosen.” God calls men and women to preach the Gospel and the Seminary offers the called person an opportunity to develop the gift that God has already given them. The faculty and staff at S.T.S. are excited about the many opportunities available to those who desire to learn. We look forward to serving your educational needs and having you as part of the Sacramento Theological Seminary and Bible College family.”
