Welcome from CBS President Sam Harbin


samwelcome_webThank you for taking the time to "visit" Calvary Baptist Seminary! We're delighted that you've stopped by and hope you will find our website informative and helpful.

May I share with you a quick snapshot of what we're about? We provide regionally accredited, graduate-level theological education that is both strongly academic and intensely practical. We offer resident as well as online courses.We like to describe our seminary with the phrase, "passion for the truth, compassion for the world."

We're passionate about God's inspired and unchanging Word found in the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments.

Study with us and we'll show you how to really get into your Bible. Not only will you learn ancient biblical languages, you'll become conversant with theological developments as recent as last week.

We'll also show you how to get the Bible into you. We're serious about helping our students grow in personal godliness. Through formal mentoring and informal contact with your professors both in and outside the classroom, you will be helped to personally grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.

But our passion for God's truth has produced in us a compassion for the staggering spiritual needs of the world. "How shall they hear without a preacher?" (Romans 10:14). We are known as an institution whose graduates can actually do effective ministry.

Study with us and we'll teach you how to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ in ways that are both accurate and interesting. Through innovative strategies for learning practical theology, we'll show you how to lead effectively. God may even call you to join the ranks of our many graduates who have become pioneering church planters in communities around the world.

If you are sensing the calling of God in your life toward gospel ministry, then you should definitely get acquainted with Calvary. Come and see us near Philadelphia sometime soon!
