We believe that the greatest and most urgent of all our needs is a revival of true godliness, which is true biblical spirituality, or having Christ formed in us by the Holy Spirit (Gal 4:19; Col 1:27). Such spirituality is not natural to the sinful person who regards it as foolishness: “The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God” (1 Cor 2:14). A vital part of discipleship and the training of gospel workers at the Seventh-‐ day Adventist Theological Seminary is to enable them to cultivate genuine biblical spirituality through justification and the process of sanctification, for it is impossible 2 for them to give others what they themselves do not have (Acts 4:13; 1 Cor 6:11; 1 Pet 1:2).
