3. We believe in the triune God, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-eternal and co-equal from all eternity, each with distinct personalities but of one essence. God is sovereign, unchangeable, and perfect in all His attributes. He is worthy of honor, adoration, and obedience.
4. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born miraculously of a virgin, sinless in His humanity, and complete in His deity as the second person in the Trinity. His suffering and literal death was a substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of the world. He was buried and rose again bodily and ascended into
5. We believe that man is totally depraved and salvation from the eternal penalty of sin is provided solely by the grace of God through personal faith in His person and work.
6. We believe in the personal work of the Holy Spirit which includes conviction of sin, regeneration of sinners, and indwelling believers.

Philosophy of Education It is the purpose of Macedonia Theological Seminary to contribute to the development of our students in the areas of Christian character, academic skills, subject mastery, Biblical understanding, and practical wisdom. We believe that Christian character and practical wisdom are best achieved through a cooperative effort with the local church. Academic skills and subject mastery are accomplished through clear explanation and responsive repetition, such as that found in our workbooks. There is no beneficial understanding apart from a Biblical understanding (Eph. 4:17-24). All of our curricula are written from a Biblical viewpoint. We firmly believe that conclusions about life and reality must be based on the Word of God above all other experiences and research. We believe study methods should be individualized: ([You] study to show thyself approved...), and if at all possible, directed by the pastor/teacher (II Tim 2:15; 2). We believe the product of higher education should be a Christian servant, skilled in the Word of God, trained in an area of service, and able to effectively use his education to the glory of God.
The Macedonia Theological Seminary, Inc. was founded by Dr James A Gordon PhD P Overseer of Macedonia Cathedral Church of God in St Albans New York.

Philosophy of Education
Macedonia Theological Seminary seeks to advance students in the areas of Christian character, academic skills, subject mastery, Biblical understanding, and practical wisdom. Academic skills and subject mastery are accomplished through clear explanation and responsive repetition, such as that found in M.T.S workbooks. We believe there is no beneficial understanding apart form a Biblical understanding (Eph. 4:17-24). All M.T.S curricula are written from a Biblically conservative viewpoint. We passionately believe that conclusions about life and reality must be based on the Word of God above all other experiences and research. We believe study methods should be individualized: ([You] study to show thyself approved…), and, if possible, directed by a pastor/teacher (2 Tim 2:15). We believe the product of higher education should be a Christian servant, skilled in the Word of God, trained in an area of service, and able to effectively use his education to the glory of God.
