Wherever you’re called, Southwestern will equip you.
A call to ministry is a call to prepare. At Southwestern Seminary, we equip you with the knowledge and tools to maximize your call to ministry, your passion for God, and your heart for the world. Whatever ministry He’s called you to, wherever He leads you to go, Southwestern will prepare you.
Southwestern’s motto, “Preach the Word, Reach the World,” captures our passion for the Bible and a compassion for people. We stand on the inerrant Word of God, boldly proclaiming the Gospel to a world desperately in need of a relationship with Jesus Christ.
At Southwestern, you will grow in your understanding of God’s Word as you cultivate a desire to make disciples of all nations through preaching, teaching, and evangelism. What you learn here will ensure that you thrive—not merely survive—for a lifetime of ministry.
Southwestern Seminary has trained and commissioned more than 44,000 graduates to serve in local churches and mission fields around the world. In 1908, B.H. Carroll established the seminary on the campus of Baylor University, and Southwestern moved to its current location on Seminary Hill in Fort Worth in 1910.
Offering bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, including online and flexible access programs, Southwestern can equip you in a variety of ministry fields, including preaching, student ministry, counseling, apologetics, and women’s ministry. And because of the generous giving by your local Baptist church, your tuition could be as much as 65 percent less than other seminaries, freeing you from financial burdens that could limit your ability to fulfill God’s call on your life.
At Southwestern, our history is filled with faithful servants, and our hallways are filled with thousands more. Come, and find your place at Southwestern.
