American Lutheran Theological Seminary (ALTS) is part of The American Association of Lutheran Churches (TAALC). Our mission is to prepare men to serve as pastors in our church body. Further, we provide theological education for lay people who desire advanced theological education.
We are Christians who love the Lord and love His Word. God speaks to us in His Word either through the Law (telling us what to do and not do, and threatening punishment when we fail to live up to its standards) or through the Gospel (telling us what God has done, is doing, and will do for us through the life, ministry, and work of Jesus Christ).
We hold the ecumenical creeds, namely the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian creeds, to be valid summaries of the Christian faith and doctrine. We also believe that the Lutheran Confessions rightly present the teachings of the Bible.
Some of the posts on this site will be written by our professors and others by students in our seminary.
