Statement of Faith


We define ourselves as a Bible-based, Christ-centred, Spirit-led seminary. We are a home to a broad cross-section of Christians who believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of the Triune God, that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, that through his death and resurrection Jesus Christ became the only Saviour, that people are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone, that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity who actively ministers to and through God’s people, that the Lord founded and loves the church, and that Jesus Christ is coming again to judge all people.

SATS is a home for Christians from a broad diversity of churches and denominations who are comfortable with our high view of the Bible and of the gospel. We make no attempt to take a firm stance on most issues that divide evangelical believers. You will feel at home regardless of your beliefs about baptism, the Lord’s Supper, women in ministry, Calvinism versus Arminianism, the age of the Earth, the end times, or any number of other debates amongst evangelical Christians.

You do not need to agree with our faith commitments to study through SATS. We teach theology from an evangelical perspective, but anyone is welcome to study with us.

Philosophy

We see our role as providing lifelong learning 1 opportunities in theological and practical, church-related studies of a high academic standard. We believe that the responsibility for the learning process should be placed upon the student within the context of the local church. We see our role as a provider of reasonably priced, academically sound, Bible-based, Christ-centred, Spirit-led online training.

Board of Directors

SATS is under the governing oversight of a Board of Directors that meets five times each year. At present, the members of the Board include Carlos Caldas, Eleanor Chamberlain, Stuart Tapson, Adam Spence, Douglas Timberlake, Jennifer Mason, and Kevin Smith. Under the leadership of the Board, the Seminary has successfully maintained its policy of being debt free since its inception.
