Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ!
Welcome to Olivet Theological College & Seminary, a place where you can find answers to your life questions from the Bible, the Holy Word of God. We are here to equip Christian men and women holistically to be bold witnesses of Jesus Christ who died for us on the cross to redeem our sins and gave us the hope of eternal life.
We believe that the world today needs to know Scripture more than ever before. Only by studying the Bible can we resolve all misunderstandings about God, rebuild our relationships, and restore every single individual in His holy light. Our seminary stands on the firm foundation of the Holy Scripture, which can only be fully revealed by the Holy Spirit, but not by the rationality of man.
“God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.” (Ephesians 1:17-18)
We are standing upon the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints through the apostolic age until now. During your study in OTCS, we will walk you through the past 2,000 years of Church history. Take the baton from the saints to continue your ministry with love for Christ Jesus and the purest heart for the glory of God.
We sincerely pray you to be equipped as faithful servants in all the ways He has called and is calling you to. Amen.
