Theological education and spiritual formation at our school are guided by three principles: sound scholarship, praxis-orientation, and personal faith development. The mission statement of our school is:
- Our theological work is rooted in a faith practiced in the discipleship of Christ. It is moved by the world-changing love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.
- Our theological work is nurtured by liberated thinking. It is in open conversation with the sciences, with other cultures and beliefs and actively engages contemporary issues.
- Our theological work has as its aim Christian love in action. It participates in the mission of God for the salvation and welfare of the world, which manifests itself in the proclamation of the Gospel and concrete acts of mercy and righteousness.
