Carver Core Values

Carver Baptist Bible College, Institute & Theological Seminary is a private institution of higher education. Every program at Carver is designed to train students in Bible and Theology in order to prepare them for effective Christian ministry, especially in an urban, multi-ethnic context.  Thus, our institutional core values are:

Authority of God’s Word – We believe the Scriptures (Old & New Testament) are the final authority for all Christian faith and practice. (Matthew 5:17-19; 1 Thessalonians 2:3)

Integrity – We live out Christ-like character in public and private. (Titus 2:7-8)

Servant Leadership – We serve the Lord Jesus Christ, the Church, and the world with humility recognizing the worth of each person before God. (Philippians 2:3-8; Mark 10:45)

Excellence – We strive for excellence in education, ministry, and life. (Colossians 3:23)

Mission-Focused – We fulfill the Great Commission by intentionally helping others grow in Christ, equipping them to reach all people groups.  We are committed to sharing our hope and the love of Jesus Christ with the lost world. (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2; 1 Peter 3:15)
