Core Values[edit]

The core values of Carolina Graduate School of Divinity are:

Christ as Teacher – We believe that the teacher who has come from God continues in that role today as he reveals the Father and opens the scriptures to us through the Spirit. Scripture as Trustworthy – We have the Scriptures at the center of our curriculum because they are a totally trustworthy revelation of God’s will and redemptive activity. Discipleship as Transformation – We understand discipleship as transformation into the image of Christ which enables us to love him with the totality of our being and to obey his commands. Scholarship as Rigorous – We hold that preparation for ministry should be rigorous in the development of the required theological and professional competencies. Ministry as Servanthood – We choose the model for ministry given by Jesus who came to serve, not be served. Evangelicalism as Trans-denominational – We cherish the trans-denominational nature of evangelicalism and respect theological differences among Christ-centered Christians. Mission as Global – We anticipate the day when the entire earth will be filled with the glory of God and commit ourselves to participating in the global mission given by the risen Lord.
