Though Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary is not a denominational seminary in the classical sense of the designation (we do not belong to any one denomination), we have established ties of accountability with a number of church courts (local Sessions, Presbyteries, and even Denominations). We are a recognized institution of theological instruction to all denominations affiliated with the North American Presbyterian and Reformed Council, including the ARPC, the OPC, the PCA, the PRC, the RCUS, the RPCNA, and the URCNA. We have relationships with smaller North American (e.g. BPC, RPC-Hanover, ARBCA, etc.) and international denominations (e.g. EPCEW, FCC, IPB, etc.) as well. Our commitment to ecclesiastical accountability is most clearly seen in our sponsoring session/presbytery program. For more information about this program, please contact email@example.com.
We have not sought academic accreditation with the United States government, though we seek to comply with all rules, regulations, and laws for non-profit charitable organizations in the State of South Carolina and in the United States of America. We have entered into an academic accountability arrangement with the Association of Reformed Theological Seminaries (ARTS), through whom we maintain formal accreditation.
