OUR MISSION – To equip servant leaders for effective Reformed ministry that is Christ centered, gospel driven, and mission focused.
OUR VISION – To train men and women for full-time gospel ministry and to enrich and enable all laypersons who seek to become more knowledgeable and effective in their own personal ministries.
OUR GOAL – To prepare leaders of the 21st century, emphasizing the application of Scripture to all aspects of our culture and providing them with excellent academic instruction combined with XEE training, guidance in each student’s personal spiritual growth and hands–on ministry experience.
OUR MODEL – Scottish reformer John Knox. Future leaders, inspired with his commitment, fervor, and fire, will cry from their hearts for their own homelands – and the world – just as he did with his now famous prayer: “Lord, give me Scotland, or I die!”
In obedience to the Great Commission and desiring to meet the need for laborers in the harvest – in our nation and indeed , the world — Dr. D. James Kennedy and leaders of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church met in 1989 to establish a seminary faithful to the entire Word of God. Knox Theological Seminary is the fulfillment of those dreams.
A Knox education develops both mind and heart. Instruction and inspiration are given by godly, caring scholars and teachers who are concerned that the historic Christian faith is both conceptually understood and passionately embraced. We seek to provide students with nothing less than the integration of solid Biblical, historical, and practical theology with true spirituality, enabling these men and women to become leaders of the church and society.
Our Theological Seminary combines a rigorous theological education with effectual leadership training. The administration and faculty are committed to the truths of Reformed theology: the Sovereignty of God, the inerrancy of His Word, and the Great Commission.
The theological perspective from which training is offered is that of historic Reformed theology as expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms and in the principles of Presbyterian church government. However, students from other evangelical perspectives are encouraged to apply and are heartily welcomed.
This foundation of education enables our students to discharge a variety of functions in God’s kingdom, such as pastoral work, counseling, evangelism, missions, church planting, establishing Christian schools, and media ministries.
