The simplified M.Div.
Southern Seminary has introduced a new M.Div. to better prepare students for a lifetime of faithfulness.
Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the mission of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is to be totally committed to the Bible as the Word of God, to the Great Commission as our mandate, and to be a servant of the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention by training, educating, and preparing ministers of the gospel for more faithful service.
From its inception, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has been a confessional institution founded upon the Abstract of Principles. The Abstract is signed by every faculty member who pledges to teach “in accordance with and not contrary to all that is contained therein.” This pledge remains unchanged since 1859. It is what makes us Trusted for Truth.
Southern Seminary is Committed to Preparing You to Advance the Truth of God’s Word in a Challenging World
The Church is facing unprecedented challenges as secularism, declining religious institutions, and increasing polarization are just a few of the obstacles that we must overcome. But these challenges also present an opportunity for the gospel to shine brightly as an alternative to the lies of the world. Southern Seminary remains a trusted source of theological education that will prepare you to advance the truth of God’s Word in these challenging times, preparing you with the knowledge and skills you need for today’s ministry.
