Princeton Theological Seminary (PTS) is a theological seminary of the Presbyterian Church located in the Borough of Princeton, New Jersey in the United States. It grew out of Princeton University, though, today the two institutions are independent of each other. PTS is one of the world's leading institutions for graduate theological education and home of the largest theological library in the United States and second largest in the world. Today it is an international community with a little over 700 students, a faculty of 53, and an ecumenical and worldwide constituency. Although the roots of Princeton Seminary are in Presbyterianism, not all the students are candidates for the ministry in the Presbyterian Church; some are candidates for ministry in other denominations, while others are studying toward careers in academia, and still others are pursuing fields less directly related to theology, such as law, medicine, social work, administration and education. Like some other theological institutions, Princeton Theological Seminary has roots in a distinctive denominational heritage and was affiliated from the beginning with the Presbyterian Church.

Mission Statement

Princeton Theological Seminary prepares men and women to serve Jesus Christ in ministries marked by faith, integrity, scholarship, competence, compassion, and joy, equipping them for leadership worldwide in congregations and the larger church, in classrooms and the academy, and in the public arena. A professional and graduate school of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Seminary stands within the Reformed tradition, affirming the sovereignty of the triune God over all creation, the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Gods saving word for all people, the renewing power of the word and Spirit in all of life, and the unity of Christs servant church throughout the world. This tradition shapes the instruction, research, practical training, and continuing education provided by the Seminary, as well as the theological scholarship it promotes. In response to Christs call for the unity of the church, the Seminary embraces in its life and work a rich racial and ethnic diversity and the breadth of communions represented in the worldwide church. In response to the transforming work of the Holy Spirit, the Seminary offers its theological scholarship in service to Gods renewal of the churchs life and mission. In response to Gods sovereign claim over all creation, the Seminary seeks to engage Christian faith with intellectual, political, and economic life in pursuit of truth, justice, compassion, and peace. To these ends, the Seminary provides a residential community of worship and learning where a sense of calling is tested and defined, where Scripture and the Christian tradition are appropriated critically, where faith and intellect mature and life-long friendships begin, and where habits of discipleship are so nourished that members of the community may learn to proclaim with conviction, courage, wisdom, and love the good news that Jesus Christ is Lord. Adopted by the Board of Trustees, May 1996
