Letter from the Chancellor

If you are looking for a Bible-based, Christ-centered, and apologetically oriented seminary training, Veritas Evangelical Seminary offers classes from some of the best teachers in the field in the country. At Veritas your faith will be grounded in the inerrancy of Scripture and nurtured in a relationship with Christ that will be modeled after His example of humility and self-sacrifice.  Hosea said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). And this sad state in much of the church today is totally unnecessary.  At Veritas you will be given knowledge of God, His Word, and the world in which we proclaim it.  It is our firm conviction that the church today must be both biblical and practical.  It should be both anchored to the Rock and geared to the times.  It should proclaim God’s changeless truth in these changing times.  We take seriously Paul’s statement that “I am put here for the defense of the gospel” (Philip. 1:16). In a day when serious doctrinal declension rocks the church, we are convinced that in the spiritual realm too, we cannot recognize a counterfeit unless we know the genuine.

With this in view, we offer complete understanding of the whole counsel of God in Scripture and a systematic understanding of “sound doctrine” that the apostle Paul urged the church to pursue (2 Tim. 1:3; 4:3-4). For we are firmly convinced that we cannot recognize error unless we know the truth.  Jesus said, “Your Word is truth” (Jn. 17:17). Indeed, He added, “I am the truth” (Jn. 14:6). So, whether it is in propositional form or in personal form, Veritas is committed to convey and apply the truth of God to the church of God.

In His Service,

Dr. Norman L. Geisler, Chancellor
