Milestones: The Seminary since its inception has a story of optimism. It strives to be unique in the region. Bronnum Lutheran Seminary is the largest English speaking Seminary in West Africa sub-region. By God’s grace, with the introduction of Degree and Masters programmes in 2007 and 2020 respectively, the Seminary has recorded heart-warming accomplishment, with support by the Church, individuals, groups and partners. It has administrative autonomy and academic freedom. The Governing Council gives the Management the necessary support. Her admission is open to other denominations within and outside the country. We have received international students particularly from Cameroun and Sierra Leone. Currently, we have international students from Sierra Leone. We wish to acknowledge and celebrate the efforts of all previous Faculty and Staff members who have served the institution for all these years to make it what it is today.
The basis for the doctrinal position of the Seminary is that the Bible is the word of God and that the word of God reveals all the truth about human salvation. The Seminary follows the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. Luther’s Catechisms and the Augsburg Confession of 1530. The Seminary holds to these creeds as the true expression of the Christian faith. The seminary thus believes and teaches the following:
a. The Bible is the word of God which is trustworthy and authoritative, II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:21.
b. It is the responsibility of every Christian to read and interpret the Bible.
c. The unity of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I John 5:6-8.
d. Man is totally depraved because of Adam’s first sin, Rom. 3:23; 5:12.
e. The miraculous human life of the Son of God; his death and resurrection for the salvation of sinful human beings; his intercession for us and his eternal Kingdom, Phil. 2:5-11; II Kor. 5:18-19; Heb.7:25; Matthew 28:18.
f. The salvation of sinners through faith in Christ alone, Rom. 3:24.28; 1:17.
g. The work of the Holy Spirit in turning sinners to Christ and in sanctifying them, John 16:8-15.
h. The immortal soul and the resurrection from the dead. Our Lord Jesus will judge the world with eternal blessing for the believers and eternal punishment for the wicked, Heb. 9:27; Acts 24:15; John 5:28 — 29; Mt. 25:46.
i. We affirm the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, Genesis 2:18 —25; Eph. 5:22-25.
