Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary seeks to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission. Southeastern is an institution of higher learning and a Cooperative Program ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention. Southeastern affirms the Bible as the authoritative Word of God. We covenant to teach in accordance with and not contrary to the Abstract of Principles and the Baptist Faith and Message. We further affirm the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy and the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
The 2017 Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Ministry Report is the compilation of SEBTS’s response to questions, and related reports, and is presented in five separate groupings. These groupings are: President’s letter, Ministry Inquiries, Ministry Goals and Accomplishments, Seminary Formula and ATS Report. A seminary formula, based upon FTEs (a seminary enrollment equation), is used to determine the portion that SEBTS receives from the 22.16% of the 2016/2017 Cooperative Program Budget (National CP Dollars) allocated to six Southern Baptist seminaries. Also, we are including a Mid-Year Ministry Update which will be posted in July of 2017.
