Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS) is one of six official seminaries of the Southern Baptist Convention. It is located in Kansas City, Missouri. Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary also houses an undergraduate college, Midwestern Baptist College, SBC. Although the seminary focuses primarily on graduate level education, there are diploma options available. Midwestern Seminary was officially founded on May 29, 1957 when the Southern Baptist Convention voted to establish the institution and elected a board of trustees. Since that time, the trustees have been regularly and exclusively elected by the Southern Baptist Convention. Under the leadership of the original board of trustees, the seminary was established in 1958 in Northern Kansas City, Missouri with 6 faculty members and 136 students. Most of the property on which the seminary is housed was donated by the Vivion family to the seminary. The Vivion farm home has been restored and is now used for special events and to house special guests of the seminary. Doctrinally, MBTS is controlled by the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message. Every member of the faculty and administration is required to sign a statement agreeing to the precepts of this document. While students are required to be Christians, they are not required to affirm the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message. Educationally, MBTS is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC). The seminary is accredited to offer several Master's degrees that are generally classified as Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Arts. In the MDiv program, concentrations are available in the traditional MDiv, Christian Education, Collegiate Ministries, International Church Planting, North American Church Planting, Urban Ministry, Worship Leadership and Youth Ministry. Master of Arts degrees are available in Christian Education Degree, Christian Education Degree plus Worship Leadership Concentration, Church Music, Counseling, Biblical Archaeology and Biblical Languages. At the doctoral level, MBTS offers two ministry-related degrees: Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) and Doctor of Educational Ministry (D.Ed.Min.). The seminary also offers a Graduate Certificate in Christian Foundations for Lay Ministers. Midwestern Baptist College, SBC offers undergraduate degrees. The seminary faculty is currently preparing to offer a PhD program. The purpose statement of Midwestern Seminary is "to biblically educate God-called men and women to be and to make disciples of Jesus Christ throughout the world."
