United Theological Seminary was established in September of 1999 for the purpose of providing quality and affordable Biblical/Theological Degree Programs for those who labor in Ministry. We are a “non-denominational” institution of higher learning. However, we subscribe to, practice, teach and preach the doctrines of the Christian Faith. United Theological Seminary is recognized as one of the official educational institution for several church organizations and reformations.
Although the word “seminary,” may imply graduate training for higher institutional learning, the Seminary has been established for the sole purpose of issuing credentials to men and women as certified, licensed and ordained professional ministers. United Theological Seminary is a subordinate ministry/auxiliary of Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches, which is filed with the IRS as an exempt church/educational ministry. With this status we may train, as well as license and ordain and commission Churches through the Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches.
Our emphasis is not to achieve secular accreditation, although we issue degrees for ministry purposes only. Our mission is to equip the minister with practical education for his/her ministry. We continue in this practical path as the means of fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
United Theological Seminary admits students of any race, age, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the University. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic administered programs.
The Mission of United Theological Seminary is five-fold in nature. We strive to be on the forefront of providing quality and affordable programs of Biblical/Theological education and training, while maintaining scriptural integrity and commitment to the empowerment and equipping of Five-Fold Ministers. Therefore, our Mission is as follows:
- To provide programs of Biblical/Theological studies that stimulate, nurture and empower our students
- To maintain the truth and integrity of the principles, faith and discipline initially provided to the Church by way of the Apostles [click here]
- To provide programs of educational content that ignite, empower and advance the Kingdom of God through the Five-Fold Ministries of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers
- To provide our students with a means of acquiring the specific training and education needed to effectively minister to the people of God
- To provide a spiritual atmosphere of Christian learning that is accessible to students despite geographical location

At the start of each session, new and transfer students are led in a period of orientation, the purpose of which is to ease the transition to United Theological Seminary by acquainting students with the mission, people, systems, and setting of United Theological Seminary.
It is the student’s responsibility to submit the required course-work and assignments via email no later than 11:59 pm (mid-night) on the first day of each week (Sunday). Failure to submit the required course-work will result in lower grades and the possibility of expulsion from the course. Habitual disregard to course-work submission policy will result in the student being expelled (indefinitely) from all classes for the session in which he/she is currently in.
