Now More Than Ever

Our CTS Commitments have more urgency today than ever before.

In response to the division in our world and society, Chicago Theological Seminary reaffirms more than 160 years of standing on the side of justice and mercy.

As people of faith, we embrace love instead of hate, community instead of alienation, and respect instead of fear-mongering. We reject words and acts that demonize others.

At this moment in history, our CTS Statement of Commitments guides our work, leadership, and ministry to individuals, religious communities, and society. No matter the challenges brought by forces of division, fear, or hate, CTS will not waver from the commitments we hold dear. Stand with us.

In all of these ways, we are committed to embracing not only the rhetoric but the reality of diversity, to celebrating the costs and joys of discipleship, and to boldly accepting the challenges entailed by this Statement of Commitment.
