Building a beautiful community of Christians with intellectually sensible Gospel & practically credible social life.

Galilee School of Theology is grounded in the Christian faith and shaped by the Protestant tradition of pious criticism, ecumenical openness, and bio-friendly concern. Its mission as a school of graduate level theology programs is to educate — through scholarship, teaching, and service — faithful and creative leaders for implementing the inclusive and soft vision of the Galilean Jesus in the world.

  • Understanding:
  • Self-confidence:
  • Self-criticism:
  • Readiness to Learn from Others:
  •  Capability to Raise Questions:
  • Empowering to Commit:
  • Sustaining the Vision of Jesus:

Value Statement [Commitments] 

To accomplish our mission, we commit to the following values as educational outcomes.
Understanding:
Do the very best for students to understand their own Christian traditions, not merely to repeat and confess them.

Self-confidence:

Be accountable to the secular intelligence as well as the Christian mind with confidence of the ancient Christian faith in spite of all the suppressive endeavors.

Self-criticism:

Be responsible in all of our intellectual and practical activities. Be proud of being a Protestant which succeed in the critical mind of Galilean Jesus and St. Paul.

Readiness to Learn from Others:

Readiness for constant learning is essential to be ever maturing people in this global and postmodern age. Learn form everyone with respect and dignity, valuing individual and cultural-religious differences.

Capability to Raise Questions:

Practicing the Three Big Questions (In what sense? On what ground? For what/whom?) in various contexts.

Empowering to Commit:

Empowering students to commit themselves to the vision with the cause they discern.

Sustaining the Vision of Jesus:

Sustaining the vision of Galilean Jesus anchored on passionate criticism of the established and compassionate open-table with the under-privileged, which was unfortunately so early collapsed under the violent and self-righteous Christendom.
