MTS–Michigan is grounded in the authority of the Bible
|Dr. Paul E. Wilson
Associate Dean of Student Services–Chaplain
One of the core beliefs of MTS–Michigan is that the Bible is God’s Word.
Our objective is to equip students to handle the Word of God with precision and passion.
“Our students say that they profit from learning the handle to Word of God well,” says Paul Wilson, Associate Dean of Student Services–Chaplain at MTS–Michigan. “They learn to understand and communicate it with confidence.”
The rigorous, non-denominational academic setting at MTS–Michigan supports that effort.
“Our students come to MTS–Michigan from various cultural and denominational setting,” he says, “which provides a rich context for collaborative learning.”
In Wilson’s view, theological understanding should be a work of the whole person—not merely the product of reason. Therefore, “Theology should teach us how to live—to live relationally, righteously, compassionately and Christ-like,” he says. “Knowledge that does not transform body, soul and spirit is only intellectual speculation.”
