Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary is called by God through the church to educate men and women to participate in the redemptive ministry of Jesus Christ in the world.

The Seminary is a community that affirms and trusts the ever-faithful presence and activity of the triune God. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we confess the Scriptures to be the unique and authoritative witness to God's redemptive love for the world.

We are committed to an ecumenical vision of the Body of Christ. We recognize the wholeness of the church's mission, respect the cross-cultural character of Christian ministry in the world and support continuing efforts at interfaith dialogue and practice.

The Seminary's student body and faculty represent 15 different faith traditions, predominantly from Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist denominations.
