Purpose and Introduction

The School of Theology of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary provides graduate theological education to equip students for faithful Christian ministry. Since the only true basis for effective ministry is faithfulness to the scriptures, the degree programs emphasize the faithful interpretation of the Bible and sound application of its teaching. The curriculum consists of biblical, theological, and practiced disciplines to prepare students to reach the lost and to build up the church of the living God. The school promotes growth in Christian character and zeal. Altogether these provide training and resources for a life-time of theological study and effective ministry.
