Our mission: Shaping leaders who expand God's kingdom around the world.
We are a graduate theological school of the Southern Baptist Convention. We are accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. As a Southern Baptist seminary, we teach in accordance with and not contrary to the Baptist Faith & Message 2000.
Southern Baptists support Golden Gate Seminary through the Cooperative Program, whose purpose is to fund Southern Baptist Convention ministries by securing, coordinating and apportioning financial offerings from multiple churches.
The 2014 Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary Ministry Report is the compilation of GGBTS’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), determines the portion that GGBTS receives from the 22.16% of the 2013/2014 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 2014.
