Christian Theological Seminary is more than a seminary.

We are a graduate school of theology related to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and serving the whole people of God. We welcome all to create an intellectually rigorous, spiritually formative and emotionally supportive education that equips our students to go out into all the world and serve—whether that’s in the church or in the community. CTS also offers a robust counseling program that provides professional counseling preparation and spiritual/theological integration for those training to become mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, pastoral psychotherapists and spiritual care specialists.

Our legacy and vision are rooted in inclusivity and respect for the dignity of humankind, created by a loving God, and made for relationship. At CTS, we believe that worth and dignity are birthrights of every person and stand independent of one’s age, sex, color, race, creed, national origin, religion, marital status, citizenship status, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical or mental disability, or social status. Responding to Christ’s love we celebrate one another and seek to learn from one another.
