Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary & College serves the church by biblically educating God‐called men and women to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ. The core values of Midwestern Seminary consist of the ideologies of Veritas (Truth) – “Knowing,” Pietas (Devotion) – “Being,” and Missio (Evangelism) – “Doing.” These values are based on a thoughtful process of first knowing God’s truth; then being and becoming a thoughtful, committed disciple; and finally, taking the great truths and putting them into practice for the sake of the Kingdom.
Upon the founding of the seminary in 1957, Midwestern Seminary’s trustees declared that the seminary would adopt, as its own, the Baptist Faith and Message, which had been adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1925. The SBC ratified a revised Baptist Faith and Message statement in 1963, and most recently the Baptist Faith and Message was amended in 2000. Midwestern affirmed that statement, and it continues to constitute the seminary’s own statement of faith.
The Master of Theological Studies degree program provides a basic understanding of theological disciplines for further graduate study or for general educational purposes. The specific nomenclature for this degree program, which is governed by the same standards, has been chosen according to Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s specific purpose in offering the program and it reflects the needs and interests of the students enrolled, students who are seeking a degree with a theological core.
