A Confessional Reformed
Baptist Seminary With Global Reach

Welcome to IRBS

International Reformed Baptist Seminary (IRBS) is an Independent, Confessional, Reformed seminary based in Mansfield, TX with an ever expanding global reach.

The seminary exists to partner with churches in preparing godly men for Gospel ministry. This is done through the teaching of God’s inerrant, infallible, and inspired Word tied together with hands-on practice in the local church.

Academic Preparation

A firm foundation of truth and wisdom is vital for Gospel ministry. A master's degree from IRBS therefore ensures thorough preparation for work in Christ’s churches.

Practical Training

Theology must be put to practice in the church. For this reason, IRBS stresses internship with local churches to provide guided growth and experience in pastoral duties.

Outstanding Faculty

Instruction from eminently qualified men lays the groundwork for a faithful ministry. To this end, our students sit under some of the best theological minds and pastoral hearts in the Reformed Baptist world.

Robust, Pastoral Training

Gospel ministry is demanding and IRBS is committed to preparing men for that task. Our programs are robust and conducted by expert pastor-scholars who know first-hand the requirements of serving the Bride of Christ. Through the employment of lecture-based courses and internships, International Reformed Baptist Seminary graduates men ready to serve in churches around the world.

Our Mission & Purpose

The Bible teaches that the church must be actively involved in the spread of the Gospel (Matt. 28:18-20) and that Christian ministers are to be actively involved in the training of their successors (2 Tim. 2:2).

IRBS exists to fulfill that need through educating and training individuals for ministry through graduate level theological studies in North America and around the world.
