School of Theology

Serve others with sound doctrine, biblical wisdom, and ministry skills

The core textbook for every class at Southwestern Seminary is the holy, infallible, inerrant Word of God. Our faculty is fully convinced of the power and sufficiency of Scripture, and dedicated to training church leaders who fully trust and obey the Word.

Whatever theological education you need, our professors will help you find it. Whatever ministry experience it takes, they’ll help you build it. And wherever God calls, they’ll help you get there.
