Mission Statement

The B.Th. program occupies a central role in the mission of the St John of Damascus Institute of Theology. The  B.Th.  is  an  undergraduate  academic  program  of  Orthodox  theology  aiming  at  providing  students with both traditional and modern tools, approaches and methods that help them in serving the Church and witnessing in the Arabic speaking world as pastors and ministers. The B.Th. curriculum emphasizes the importance of intellectual training in an atmosphere of responsible freedom, as learning is closely related to  life  experience  deeply  rooted  in  the  Christian  legacy,  which  does  not  separate  life  from  intellectual achievements.  The  specific  Antiochian  identity  of  the  Institute  within  the  framework  of  the  Orthodox Church is well reflected in the shaping of the B.Th. program. This identity connects the Institute to the land where the alumni are called to witness and serve, whether in the immediate Arab environment, or abroad.
