Our mission is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the Church and fulfill the Great Commission.What We believe
Theological training for real-life ministry
At Southeastern, we challenge you to fulfill the mission because we believe you’re a part of God’s plan to share his love with the world. This means everything we do — diving deep into theology in the classroom, building friendships on campus, partnering with local churches — is preparing you to go out into the world, wherever God is calling you.
In 1950, Southeastern was established as an institution of higher learning with the support of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Cooperative Program. From an SBC conference in Chicago to the preserved historical land and renovated buildings of our Wake Forest campus, we have built a space for a community that’s passionate about the Great Commission. 70 years later, we’ve grown to over 5,000 students committed to learning and growing together in Christ.
Our students hail from 44 countries and all 50 states
