We are a great commission seminary

Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) opened its doors in 1950 and 70 years since then our student body has grown to more than 4,700 students. Our reach from Wake Forest, North Carolina now extends across the globe. We aim to make God's Kingdom vision of people from every tribe, tongue and nation worshiping Christ together a reality on our campus and in our churches (Revelation 7:9).

Our Mission

Southeastern trains Great Commission-minded ministers of the Gospel. The seminary is an institution of higher learning and a Cooperative Program ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).

Men and women can be equipped through 40 different programs with degrees ranging from Associate of Divinity to Doctor of Philosophy, including our flagship degree, the Master of Divinity.

Consider joining us at Southeastern, where our mission is “to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).”
