A confessional Reformed Baptist seminary preparing men to serve Christ and his Church


Equipping men to pass the faith to future generations.


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