Our call is global. Our objective is missional. Our directive is to all people. As a multicultural, multigenerational institution, our very existence is for the purpose of training leaders in biblical literacy, in living a lifestyle of humble obedience to Jesus Christ, who are driven and passionate to fulfill God’s call upon their lives in this world.


The European Theological Seminary is an accredited academy of higher learning and Christian education. At ETS we offer undergraduate degree programs in Pastoral Training, Missions, Counseling, Worship and Christian Education as well as master's degree programs in both Psychology and Theology. We are an evangelical, Protestant, full gospel community dedicated to the equipping of men and women for the manifold ministries of Christ and his church. 

Under the authority of Scripture, we seek to fulfill our commitment to ministry through graduate education, professional development and spiritual formation. In all of our activities, we strive for excellence in the service of Jesus Christ, under the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit. Our doors are open, without discrimination, to all people who truly desire to seek after the heart of God and develop a Kingdom mentality.
