Westminster Seminary California (WSC) exists to glorify Christ, teach his Gospel, and serve his Church through graduate theological study. WSC is a Christian institution that offers instruction in biblical, theological, and ministerial disciplines to both men and women in order to help them develop intellectually and spiritually as leaders.
While its primary focus is to educate and prepare men for ordained pastoral ministry, especially in Presbyterian and Reformed denominations, WSC also provides theological education to women and men who wish to serve the broader Christian community and society at large so that the whole body of Christ may be enriched through the diverse gifts bestowed by God’s Spirit.
Because “zeal without knowledge” and “knowledge without zeal” can only injure the church, WSC seeks to develop in its students a balance of scholarship and Christ-like piety where the proper cultivation of the mind increases the devotion of the heart. In this way, the Seminary strives to be an Academic community whose scholarly pursuits ultimately seek to glorify Christ, promote His Gospel, and serve His Church.
