    Welcome to GBTS

    Founded by a local church for the purpose of training ministers focused on local church ministry.

    Our Purpose

    The purpose of Grace Bible Theological Seminary (GBTS) is to glorify God in the church by educating and equipping the next generation of pastors, church planters, and missionaries to see churches established and strengthened across the globe.

    Mission Statement

    The mission of Grace Bible Theological Seminary is to facilitate biblically faithful theological training that prepares students in both sound doctrine and practice in the context of the local church and under the guidance of pastoral mentorship for the service of Christ and his church.

    What We Believe

    We affirm the Historic Reformed Confessions of faith and particularly subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689 as our doctrinal standard.
