Trust. It’s something that’s earned. It doesn’t come quickly. It’s the result of being time tested. When the trustworthiness of God’s Word was being challenged, we stood for truth. We place our trust on the truth that endures. We are The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and we are Trusted for Truth.
