What is the stated purpose of TPC?

The purpose of the TPC is: “To be the means under God to train pastors for local churches who rule well by labouring in preaching and teaching (1 Timothy 5:17)”. This includes being well grounded in all Biblical doctrines (Titus 1:9), knowing the principles of Biblical exposition, and so be able to refute false teaching and build people up in the true faith.
Therefore, we have a very practical purpose. We ask God to give us godly, committed, self-denying men, who will give themselves to the ministry of the Word in the local church, and take it to those who have never heard. We believe that such men need to be very well equipped and so we promise to do all we can to see that all who are involved in the TPC attain the highest level of which they are capable.
