The Alaska Bible Seminary is called in faith to serve humanity by proclaiming the “Gospel of Jesus Christ”. We believe the Triune God, as revealed in the Old and New Testaments, is the only source for life and salvation. Scripture is the sole standard of our doctrine and faith; therefore these fundamental biblical principles form the foundation for the work of the Alaska Bible Seminary. We accept as truth that salvation is by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
The Seminary is a non-denominational institution and has an open enrollment policy. Any conservative Christian is welcome to attend and will benefit from the education taught at the Seminary. The following statements expand on our Doctrinal Statement and further explain our beliefs.
The Alaska Bible Seminary believes and teaches:
- The Triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- The inerrancy and authority of Scripture.
- The substitutionary atonement and the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
- That salvation is through faith alone in Christ alone.
- The human race is spiritually lost.
- The full deity and humanity of Christ.
- The imminent physical return of Christ.
Please note: The Alaska Bible Seminary (ABS) distinguishes between spiritual gifts distributed to believers to equip them for ministry and the “sign gifts” which are understood to have been manifestations of the Holy Spirit to authenticate the messenger and the gospel message during the foundational period of the church. (See Acts 2) Thus the Alaska Bible Seminary does not consider “sign gifts” as normative for the church today.Therefore speaking in unknown tongues in public or private worship contradicts biblical teaching. While the position of ABS is not meant to be a test of fellowship with those whose traditions differ, members of ABS will not practice or publicize practices at variance with ABS’s stated position.
