A Faculty for Christ, a Faculty for the Student

A seminary may be measured by its professors. IRBS Theological Seminary is thankful for a faculty of some of the best pastor-scholars in the world; each is committed to Jesus Christ the Lord and the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the infallible and inerrant Word of God, each teaching according to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith, each experienced in pastoral ministry, and each an expert in his field of study. Through their dedication to Christ’s kingdom, these men are wholly committed to the best training in the classroom, as well as mature mentorship in godliness, churchmanship, and ministerial skills

These faculty have agreed to teach courses as they occur in sequence. They are assisted by other visiting and adjunct professors.
