To educate and sustain men and women for ordained and lay Christian ministry in the church and the world through shaping and inspiring lives devoted to scholarship, piety, and justice.
The identity of MTS has been shaped by the traditions of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, its location in Memphis, a partnership with the broader Christian community, a commitment to dialogue with people of other faiths, and participation in the community of higher education.
Memphis Theological Seminary pursues its mission so that Christian leaders and the churches they serve can effectively proclaim and embody God’s mission of redemption, justice, and peace in service to the new creation in Jesus Christ.
“One of my greatest life experiences, theologically, spiritually and mentally.”
Florenstine Sullivan Woods
“The education I received at MTS was above par. The professors ranged from the conservative evangelical perspective to a more liberal mainline protestant perspective with a sprinkling of Roman Catholic in between. Yet all of them were caring and very well educated with a genuine love for Christ Jesus…”
Derek W. White
“MTS is one of the best things that could have happened to me. Going through their PAS program was an amazing experience and blessing.”
