Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) believes that every Christian is a Great Commission Christian. Because of this, SEBTS is excited to announce the new GO Certificates, theological education for every Christian. 

SEBTS GO Certificates provide the opportunity to strengthen ministry through accessible theological education. With sound teaching and practical application, Sunday school teachers, small group leaders and others can grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures. 

“We’re excited to come alongside churches to provide high-quality education from our world-class faculty in an easily accessible and affordable way,” said Akin. “We want to provide students with a solid biblical foundation to prepare them for their roles in the local church.” 

The fully online GO Certificates are designed to fit any type of schedule. Classes consist of 20-minute sessions, five days a week for six weeks and are taught by SEBTS faculty, including President Danny Akin and Dean of Graduate Studies Chuck Lawless. Students can earn accredited hours from SEBTS that can be applied to a degree program if desired.

Currently, students can sign up for the Certificate in Biblical Studies and Theology, which provides a strong biblical foundation for any ministry. Courses include Hermeneutics, Christian Theology, Old Testament, New Testament, Great Commission Studies, Contemporary Issues in Christian Ethics and Historical Theology.

Whether you are looking to enhance personal gospel witness, better equip Bible study groups or expose your church to richer biblical content, the GO Certificates can help you and your church receive valuable training for ministry.

“We want to equip students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission, and that includes you,” said Akin. “Start today, GO with us.”
