From its inception, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary has sought to combine the highest standards of research and scholarship with vigorous training in the practical areas of ministry including missions, evangelism, discipleship, preaching and worship. The primary purpose of the Seminary is to provide theological education for individuals engaging in Christian ministry.
