At TMAI, our core values are based on biblical principles, and shape everything we do:
Authority of Scripture
The inerrant and sufficient Word of God is our ultimate authority. Therefore, we submit to His word in all areas of life and ministry (2 Tim 3:16).
Centrality of the Local Church
The church is the pillar and support of the truth (1 Tim 3:15), the institution that Christ promised to build (Matt 16:18). Therefore, our training has as its goal the strengthening of His church.
Priority of the Gospel
The gospel of Jesus Christ alone is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes (Rom 1:16). Therefore, fundamental to our theological education is an accurate and thorough proclamation of this true gospel.
Importance of Integrity
We uphold God’s high standard of holiness and integrity for spiritual leaders (1 Tim 3). Therefore, we provide accountability in doctrinal, financial, and academic matters.
Value of Respect
We approach international ministry with a commitment to honoring our co-laborers in other countries. Therefore, we purpose from the outset to train in a way so as to entrust the training ministries into their capable hands (2 Tim 2:2).
