Doctrinal Position

The doctrinal position of Sangre de Cristo Seminary follows the history tradition of the Protestant Reformation. This School is based upon the premise that the Scriptures are True and without error in their original form. Biblical Christianity dictates the philosophy of education of the school. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior of the world and that apart from faith in His atoning work there is no redemption. The doctrinal statements as stated below are the basic presuppositions which shall dominate the classroom. At all times the Scriptures are to be regarded as true, they are to be reverenced, and they are to be obeyed. Reading the Scriptures prayers and singing hymns and psalms are a regular part of seminary life.
