Aldersgate Divinity School


ads1ALDERSGATE DIVINITY SCHOOL is envisioned to become a center of learning for church workers in the BAGUIO EPISCOPAL AREA, offering formal undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as continuing church leadership and ministerial formation programs.


First, ALDERSGATE DIVINITY SCHOOL is mandated to teach, train and empower pastors and other church workers of the United Methodist Church who are

  • BIBLICALLY–GROUNDED in their faith foundation and commitment (2 Timothy 1:13 – 15; 2:15; 3:16 – 17; 4:1 – 7);
  • CHRIST–CENTERED in their spirituality and character (Acts 20:24; 1 Corinthians 3:11; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 3:7 – 9; 2 Timothy 3:13 – 14);
  • MINISTRY–FOCUSED in their vocational calling and professional competence (Isaiah 61:1-3; Romans 12:1–2; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; 3:4–6; Philippians 3:14; Hebrews 12:14–15) – this comes from a perspective of awareness of the spiritual battles of every Christian and the whole Church to the end that the wondrous grace of God is demonstrated (John 14:12; 1 Corinthians 4:20; 2 Corinthians 10:4-5; Ephesians 6:10-20);

Second, ALDERSGATE DIVINITY SCHOOL aims to develop a culture of academic excellence and professionalism anchored in the practice of social holiness and servant leadership in Christian ministries that affirms and at the same time challenges our Methodist experience and tradition.

Finally, in fulfilling its mandate, ALDERSGATE DIVINITY SCHOOL seeks the leading and empowering presence of the Holy Spirit.
