What Makes ABTS NEW DELHI Unique?
There are four areas which we think make us Unique.
1. BIBLE EXPOSITION - We believe that the Bible properly taught and applied, is the foundation and superstructure of any God-honoring ministry. As a result we emphasize both systematic Bible exposition based on original languages ( Greek & Hebrew), and culturally relevant application based upon the exegesis of the Scripture.
2. CHRIST-LIKENESS - Mere knowledge of God's Word leads to pride, hypocrisy and legalism. We are concerned that our students not only learn God's Word, but that they learn to obey and grow in Christ-likeness. A key component of building up our students into Christ- likeness is our student-professor relationships by which we seek to set examples for the students and impart to them not only our teaching, but also our lives.
3. LOCAL CHURCH MINISTRY - We believe that the church is the only institution set up by Christ to accomplish His purpose on earth. As a result, we have a strong emphasis on local church ministry. All our faculty members, has a passion for and experience in local church ministry. Our desire as a seminary is to assist the local churches of South Asia.
4. NON-DENOMINATIONAL APPROACH OF BIBLE STUDY- The term “Apostolic" in our name simply means, "Pertaining to the teachings of the Apostles". We believe everything that Jesus preached, taught and revealed in the scriptures by them. The theology of ABTS is free of denominational creeds and dogmas. This approach exposes bible students to a wide variety of religious sciences in their quest for the truth of God's word. We believe, when a person lays everything aside denominational creeds, dogmas and independently studies the Word of God without all the preconceived ideas, opinions, denominational, religious creeds, traditions, etc., God will unfold His Glorious Truth in its entirety to them.

Our Core Values:
Holding to our Apostolic Doctrine as it faithfully represents God's Word for the world; we at ABTS further emphasize the followings:
We value the authority of Scripture, the inspiration of the Bible and its authority over every aspect of life. We believe that the truth is absolute and that it is inerrantly recorded in the Holy Scriptures (KJV). The sixty-six books of the Christian Protestant Bible are our authority. We read them at face value and apply them to our lives as individuals and as an institution. The authority of Scripture is our primary value (2Timothy 3:16-17).
We value the supremacy of Jesus Christ. Because Jesus is God (John 1:3; John 20:28), we are committed to knowing, worshiping, and following Him, our resurrected King, our God and Savior. We are equally committed to the supremacy of His purpose to disciple the nations. Jesus Christ Himself is the truth; He is the standard and value of all things (Colossians 1:17; 3:1-17; Hebrews 13:8). Our curriculum, policies, and programs of study reflect the supremacy of Jesus Christ (Col 2:9-10).
We value educational integrity. Because we are committed to the authority of Scripture, we also are committed to do all things for God’s glory.
We value expository preaching and teaching, spiritual formational, active participation in the ministry of the local church and cultural engagement.

Our chapel services draw us into the biblical world in order to prepare us for the cultural world we live in. Everything else we do - study, pray, eat, dream - is anchored in this biblical practice that draws us daily into the heart of worship.
