An essential part of the educational experience at ETS is the shaping of each individual as they are being changed into Christ’s image. It is required of all students admitted to ETS that they have experienced the New Birth and it is desired that they have also been filled with the Holy Spirit. In addition, it is important that there is evidence of spiritual maturity and a calling for ministry training. The daily life in the School Community as students and faculty live, work and worship together is seen as invaluable in the personal development of students.
