As a graduate-level academic institution, BLTS actively maintains a collection of conference papers, theological essays, articles, and a host of other theological materials authored by the faculty of BLTS, the faculty of Bethany Lutheran College, and the pastors of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod. This archive is in its infancy and, therefore, will grow in time.

This site archives a growing number of theological essays, indexed by both subject and author, and also includes key doctrinal statements of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod, including Abortion, The Roles of Men and Women, and The Sanctity of Marriage.
