Where we stand
MST is an evangelical college, thoroughly committed to the infallibility of the Bible as the foundation for training and the empowering of the Spirit for service.
We believe and affirm:
- The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures.
- The Triune Godhead Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- The twofold nature of our Lord Jesus Christ God and Man. His virgin birth, vicarious death and bodily resurrection.
- His present majesty.
- His future coming in glory.
- The fall of humanity and their consequent moral depravity and need of regeneration.
- Justification by faith through the substitutionary death of Christ.
- Sanctification by the Holy Spirit.
- Resurrection of the body and eternal judgment.
