The basic purpose of Concordia Theological Seminary is to prepare men for the pastoral ministry in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Since our Synod is strongly supportive of a system of undergraduate colleges to prepare men for the study of theology at its seminaries, we believe men who are preparing for admission should seriously consider entering this system of education as early as possible.
Although Concordia Theological Seminary welcomes students who have received degrees in various fields of study, preparation for the seminary ordinarily encompasses the following: biblical knowledge, biblical language competency and understanding of Lutheran doctrine; competency in communication skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening; skills in critical thinking and philosophical inquiry; acquisition of a global perspective; the understanding of and appreciation for Lutheran ethos, identity, and ethic; and helping students to perceive, proclaim, teach and live out the centrality of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the whole of life.
