Standards of Conduct

The Expository Pastoral Training Seminary is for earnest Christians who are preparing for Christian leadership and are sensitive to the many principles for holy living which are found in the Bible. Students are required to abstain from the use of illegal drugs, tobacco, beverages for intoxication, and any forms of worldly entertainment which are inconsistent with a holy life. Although such regulations cannot improve upon our perfect standing in Christ, they do strengthen our lives and our individual and corporate testimonies.
