Knox is a seminary in the tradition of the Reformation that exists to educate men and women to declare and demonstrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We equip students from nations across the globe with the knowledge and skills needed to be ministry leaders in the Kingdom of God on Earth. Knox students will be united by their affirmation of the Apostles’ Creed but come from diverse faith traditions, and will desire to grow in their knowledge of God for the purpose of serving Christ by proclaiming the Gospel to unbelievers and discipling those who already believe.

Our goal is to train men and women for full-time gospel ministry and to enrich and enable all laypersons who seek to become more knowledgeable and effective in their own personal ministries—preparing leaders of the 21st century, emphasizing the application of Scripture to all aspects of our culture and providing them with excellent academic instruction, guidance in each student’s personal spiritual growth, and hands-on ministry experience.

Campus Life:

The smaller class sizes at Knox make interpersonal connections with professors a valued part of student life. The student body includes a wide variety of denominations and age groups, from seasoned pastors to young ministerial candidates and laypersons desiring to enrich their personal walk with the Lord. Faculty and staff work closely together to promote students’ interests and activities and intentionally build a community of encouragement and support.


Knox seeks to train both the mind and heart–to integrate solid Biblical, historical, and practical theology with true spirituality, enabling students to become leaders of church and society. This dual commitment to mind and heart is evidenced in graduate surveys showing that students leave Knox “more theologically conservative” and with a “stronger faith.”

Knox graduates serve as pastors, professors, Christian educators, counselors, evangelists, missionaries, and lay-leaders. Fully 66 percent of Knox graduates report that after studying at Knox their theological position shifted and became “more conservative,” according to a survey conducted by the Association of Theological Schools. Knox graduates also report that their trust in God was “stronger” or “much stronger” as a consequence of their Knox education.

One Review

  1. I am a DMin student at Knox and offer the highest endorsement for this institution and their programs. I attended Princeton Theological Seminary and Liberty Theological Seminary where I earned my masters degree, but find Knox to be superior in every respect. The staff and faculty are knowledgeable, relatable and genuinely care for the well-being of the students. The coursework is challenging, but appropriately so. This is a wonderful school with fantastic options for students who are seeking an education, not simply a degree.
