WHO IS CTIS?
Capstone Theological Institute & Seminary is a distance learning college offering dynamic and sound practical Christian programs. The vision of CTIS is to train, equip and mobilize believers for effective work of ministry in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all nations. Our Correspondence courses are flexible and cost-effective while allowing the student to continue serving in their respective local churches.
We realize that the traditional accreditation process for many institutions is a difficult, costly, and yet necessary requirement. This accreditation nightmare is primarily sought to educate young people in preparation for a life-time career and without the assistance of the kinds of financial aid available only to students enrolled in accredited schools, the extraordinarily high cost of tuition and fees would make it impossible for those students to attend a Christian institution. At CTIS, our goal is totally different. Our calling is the equipping and improvement of the ministry skills of men and women already serving, or preparing to serve in Christian ministry. This is why we offer authentic programs that meet real-world ministry needs, while hoping to grow into a potentially well accredited Institution for those who would use our programs as a career path in the future. That is the primary reason why we have chosen to maximize our ministerial training freedom to stand true to the teachings of Scripture, and to avoid the potentially restrictive social and financial entanglements of the current accreditation system.
Romans 14:12 (NIV) “12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” Therefore, we know that our ultimate accountability is to God. Just as Paul also wrote to the Romans, we too will have to "give an account to God" on things we are doing. Capstone Theological Institute & Seminary falls under the spiritual oversight of Capstone Translocal Partnerships which is collective of Christian believers and different local churches who see the church beyond its locality through Evangelical and Pentecostal eyes. CTP is broad in its belief system with an emphasis on the absolute authority of the Scriptures, the practical lordship of Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit and His gifts to the body.
