Four Defining Principles

For nearly 80 years Westminster Theological Seminary has been training men and women to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church around the world. The Seminary exists to "extend the knowledge of the glory of God in Christ until that knowledge covers the earth as the waters cover the sea" (see Habakkuk 2:14). We invite you to examine carefully four Principles that together Define the Westminster Difference. These principles that guided our founders continue as great motivators for our mission today.
