Mission & Vision

Mission

Northern Baptist Theological Seminary affirms its evangelical heritage through its commitments to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the authority of scripture. The seminary offers an educational context that is international, interracial and intercultural for the preparation of men and women who are called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit for the mission of Christ in the world and ministries of the church. The strategic role of the seminary is to educate leaders who will be personally whole and spiritually mature, Biblically grounded and theologically competent, pastoral, evangelistic and prophetic.

In partnership with the American Baptist churches and in cooperation with the wider church, the seminary commits itself to excellence in the pursuit of this mission.
