Mission Statement

The mission of Christian Theological Seminary is to form disciples of Jesus Christ for church and community leadership to serve God’s transforming of the world. The library supports this mission by providing trustworthy information resources and the highest quality services to assist students in their course work, faculty in their teaching and research, and community leaders in their ministries.


In every respect the library staff strives to operate according to the core values of Christian Theological Seminary:

  • All people are created in the image of God, and therefore have inherent worth and dignity;
  • The diversity of the human community is a gift from God, and an indispensable resource in preparation for responsible ministry;
  • Preparation for ministry should be intellectually rigorous, spiritually formative, and emotionally supportive;
  • Working toward justice for all is an imperative of Christian faith and life; and,
  • Promoting healing and wholeness throughout creation is one way we participate in God’s work.

Consistent with these core values, the library staff also strives to meet the ethical standards of the American Library Association and other professional societies concerning equity, diversity, and inclusion; confidentiality; and intellectual freedom.
