BELIEFS

Truett Dingbat

George W. Truett Theological Seminary is a traditional, evangelical seminary committed to our historic Baptist principles.

At Truett Seminary we believe that Jesus Christ is God, the eternal Word, and the only Savior of the world and that there is no salvation apart from Him.

We believe the scriptures, both Old Testament and New Testament are inspired, authoritative, written Word of God given to teach us what to believe and how to live.

We have no creed but the Bible, but we accept and teach consistently with what traditional Baptists have generally believed through the years.

We believe in God's sovereignty and the autonomy of the local church. God calls men and women into the ministry and churches call them to serve on their staffs. Our task is to help prepare people for their calling. We exist not for ourselves but to serve the churches.
