We here at SETI have extremely high expectations of our students. We are not simply an academic institution. As our mission statement indicates, our primary purpose is to prepare laborers to work in the ripe, end-time vineyard. Therefore, we expect that our students will:

  • Come with hearts open to learn how to work inside of God‘s plan and purpose for their lives.
  • Diligently study to learn the principles taught in each of their courses.
  • Apply the lessons learned to their individual walk in God.
  • Seek to please God by exemplifying a lifestyle that is holy and acceptable to God; not only during their matriculation at SETI, but even after their tenure with us has ended.

expected following items

Each student will find it helpful to have the following items in their library to prepare to study at Southeastern Theological Institute.  Many of them are available online.

  • Thompson Chain-Reference Bible (King James Version)
  • 3-Ring Binder and Notebook Paper
  • Access to Strong’s Concordance
  • A Bible Dictionary (Unger’s, Davis or Vines)
  • Webster’s Dictionary

Students studying at SETI will receive a Study Guide for each class.  In addition, students are expected to purchase a King James Bible, preferably the Thompson Chain.  An instructor may also recommend additional materials for each class.



Southeastern Theological Institute is a Christian organization where the Gospel of Jesus Christ is taught. The courses are designed to offer or suggest solutions to life‘s questions through the Word of God. Any lifestyle changes, acts or omissions are those of the student and his/her individual choice. All students are free to discontinue classes and to accept or reject any teaching at will.
