International Reformed University and Seminary is an institution of biblical higher education, whose mission is to prepare members of the faith community in the Northern American region including Los Angeles and further throughout the world, for service as future and lay leaders not only in Korean immigrant churches in the world but also in all the churches of God. This preparation is to train men and women who are approved workmen who do not need to be ashamed, and who correctly handle the word of the truth so that they may exert themselves in developing themselves to God.
This mission is accomplished by teaching Reformed theology and its practical concern for the church and the world. This theology is grounded in the schools’ Calvinist heritage with its emphasis on the sovereignty of God, God-centered worship, Bible-centered education, and Church-centered ministry. This teaching produces ministers and lay leaders with a unique combination of practical ministry skills and Reformed theological foundation.
