Inclusiveness

STATEMENT OF INCLUSIVENESS 

The ETS community understands itself to be a community of persons living in community under the vision of life set forth in the Bible.  As a community we embrace all persons who exhibit the necessary academic skills for membership into our community and for leadership training to serve the church in its many manifestations.

Inspired by the life of Jesus Christ and the overcoming of his violent death by God’s mercy, we believe that God calls each of us into intimate relationship and specific ministry.  As a community we understand ourselves to be enriched by the diversity of persons who come to us to discern the specific nature of that ministry and to learn effective skills in carrying it out in today’s world.
