The mission of NBTS, embedded in its constitution, reads:
Called in Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, New Brunswick Theological Seminary participates in God’s own laboring to fulfill God’s reign on earth.
Rooted in the Reformed tradition and centered in its trust in God’s sovereignty and grace, the Seminary is a multi-cultural, ecumenical school of Christian faith, learning and scholarship committed to its metro-urban and global contexts.
Our mission is to educate persons and strengthen communities for transformational, public ministries in church and society. We fulfill this mission through creative, contextual and critical engagement with texts, traditions and practices.
