WHO ARE WE?
Ark School of Ministry (ASM) is a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership, service, and ministry training through an education marked by excellence and founded in biblical truth. We are a School that emphasizes faithfulness to a biblical-theological position in regard to doctrine. We are dedicated to providing an education consistent with biblical truth. We are dedicated to glorifying God, this desire is entwined in everything we do at ASM. As we face a culture that is increasingly hostile to biblical authority and ultimate truth, we are taking a stand—a stand rooted in the truth of the God’s Word. Our commitment is to offer discipleship and mentoring to Christians who have a desire to further or begin a journey of Christian education. We believe that we are going to impact our communities, culture, and areas of ministry context for the glory of God.
WHAT IS OUR STORY?
ASM is birthed from a need of education and training locally and financially affordable for everyone. Our desire is to establish a place of learning God’s Truth’s that will perpetuate faithful believers. ASM is based on establishing the need of the following:
The inerrant, infallible, and reliable truth of God’s Word, God breathed. We believe that God has revealed Himself truthfully to humans through the inspired texts of the Scriptures. These canonical texts, Old and New Testaments, are inerrant, infallible, and reliable in detail and in theological content. The Bible, as the sufficient Word of God, has authority over the church and the Christian's life and thought. As divinely inspired texts, the meaning of the biblical authors is to be discerned through careful, textual interpretation guided by the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:19-21.
A Christ Like Believer act in Godly Service
We believe that every believer should walk by the Spirit and engage in practices that stimulate spiritual maturity. Christians grow as they worship and serve the Lord, study the Scriptures, pray, and live in fellowship with other believers. Christians are also to flee evil influences and practices, which hinder a Spirit-filled life. Due to the commission of Christ and the urgency of the gospel, all believers are to engage in gospel conversations, to live God-honoring lives, and to work continuously to spread the gospel to their neighbors and the nations. Matthew 5:16; 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; John 17:18; 20:21; Acts 1:8; Romans 6:1-14; 12:1; 2 Corinthians 5:20; 6:14-7:1; Galatians 5:16-25; Colossians 3:1-17; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17.
Creating a community focused on discipleship and service, transforming students to be ambassadors for Christ.
We believe in one God-eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, and always present, existing as three Persons- Father, Son, and Spirit, one in nature, attributes, power, and glory. God will be glorified by all creation and is worthy of worship from all of His creation. Genesis 1:1,26; Psalm 104, 148; Proverbs 30:4; Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29;John 1:1-4, 14, 18; Acts 5:3,4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Timothy 2:3-4.
Influencing our Community for Christ
That every student will live to further the mission of Christ in the world as an active influence in spiritual, moral, professional, and socially. That as we go understanding we are sent. Mat 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
We believe that a strong commitment will have a powerful gospel impact on today culture. Which will create a vibrant community that will adopt Godly moral standards and a Christ-like life.
