Our Principles


Confessional Subscription

As a confessional seminary, we strictly subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689. This is the doctrinal standard of the Institute, the confession of our faith, and a summary and just exhibition of that system of doctrine and religious belief which we believe is contained in the Holy Scripture.

Confessionally Grounded

We are a fully functioning residential confessional Reformed Baptist Seminary – the first of its kind in history, rooted and grounded in the doctrine and practice of the Word of God as reflected in the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689. This is the confession of our faith and a summary and just exhibition of the system of doctrine and religious belief which we believe is contained in the Holy Scripture, and therein revealed by God to man for his salvation.

Associational Connection

We have a strong relationship with the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America and believe that an association of churches is the best method for cooperation in many areas, including ministerial training (this is at the heart of ARBCA’s convictions, directly expressed as a founding purpose). This seminary reflects the doctrine and practice of this association as a whole, and we believe this will allow for the proper balance of unity and diversity among our churches.

Our Mission

The Need

The need for a confessional Reformed Baptist seminary is demonstrated by several factors based on foundational scriptural truths: the church must be actively involved in the spread of the Gospel (Matt. 28:18-20); the ascended Christ gives ministerial gifts to His churches (Eph. 4:11) for growth and edification; the Word of God commands Christian ministers to active involvement in the training of their successors (2 Tim. 2:2).

Serve Baptist Churches

Serving not only Reformed Baptist churches internationally (We have already taught courses in Quebec, England, Ukraine, Zambia, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and the Far East), but also the broader Calvinistic Baptist movement, and local Baptist or Baptistic churches, our goal is to bring students from around the globe to study at our school and return to their churches prepared to further the cause of Christ.

Serve the Globe

The Seminary is committed to assisting Reformed Baptist churches, and others, in preparing men for the Gospel ministry. It will serve a global constituency, offering the Master of Divinity degree, providing robust academic preparation in the necessary theological and ministerial disciplines. Employing a three-fold strategy of lecture-based courses, internships, and apprenticeships, it will graduate men ready to serve in churches around the world.
