a confessional reformed baptist seminary


We strictly subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689. This is the doctrinal standard of the Institute.


To make disciples of the next generations, men must be equipped to teach all that Christ commanded.


We are built upon a wealth of knowledge from an extensive set of contacts and over 18 years involved in the essentials of Seminary operation.


We are committed to training men from all tribes and nations, and serving Baptist churches all over the world.


We have secured all necessary affiliations for best practices in administration, being governed by a Board of Trustees, a President, and other administrators.

Extensive Theological Training

Equipping men to pass the faith to future generations.


We employ expert pastor-scholars to powerfully impact students and ensure a balanced biblical training model.


We offer a Master of Divinity degree upon completing a full curriculum of study.


We facilitate the means for men to gain the requisite ministerial experience.

No seminary like this has existed for centuries. The need is great. The time is now.

Biblically Grounded, Confessionally Committed, Historically Connected

IRBS Theological Seminary has in its heart the principle of Sola Scriptura, and so focuses study on the Bible as the only certain rule of faith and obedience. Being also historically conscious of roots in our ancient forebears of orthodoxy, the Reformers, our 17th century Particular Baptist forefathers, and many great theologians unto the present, IRBS Theological Seminary recognizes its indebtedness to the many great orthodox Christian thinkers who have labored to clarify the doctrines contained in the Scriptures. As a confessional Reformed Baptist seminary, we seek to serve future generations of Christ’s Church with this great inheritance of God’s Word, served by the subordinate inheritance of historical doctrine as summarized in the Second London Baptist Confession of 1677/89. Thus with an uncompromising affirmation of the primacy of the Scriptures and a recognition of the usefulness of our theologian brothers in the church throughout history, we are dedicated to utilizing the best resources and professors to build a unique confessional Reformed Baptist center for academics, growth, and mentorship.

…that his name may in all things be glorified, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
