This year our Seminary celebrates 40 years of ministry and thus we will take some time to reflect on the past but also to look forward in anticipation to the future. In celebrating the past, we will remember those who played a significant role in allowing the Lord to use them in the development of the Seminary. In considering the present, we will celebrate those who are currently unstintingly serving the Lord through the ministry of the Seminary. And we will also look forward to the new opportunities and partners that we believe the Lord is graciously presenting for the development of the Seminary’s missional journey. We ended the year 2012 in very high spirits and give praise to the Lord for the tremendous opportunities that fuel our anticipation for 2013. It was our privilege to participate in three significant theological education conferences during the last quarter of 2012. Read More

Why Choose Us?

The Cape Town Baptist Seminary has been equipping students for service in the ministry for over 40 years. Seeking to fulfil the calling of Missional Education via the strategy of ‘Training the Head, Heart and Hands!’

The Cape Town Baptist Seminary is a multi-cultural institution and an international student body. After much investigation and debate, the 1972 Baptist Union Assembly, meeting at King Williams Town, approved a motion that a Western Province branch of the Baptist Theological College of South Africa, be established in Cape Town, which would admit students of all races.

This Seminary offers tuition on a full-time, part-time and distance-learning basis. Students may specialize in Pastoral Ministry, Missions, Youth Ministry or Children's Ministry. The Seminary offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in cooperation with the University of Pretoria and is accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) and registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as a Private Higher Education Institution as reflected on certificate No 2000/HE08/005. We have an accredited and peer reviewed academic journal from the Department of Education. This is the only such journal that is housed at a private institution all other\'s are housed at public universities.

I am interested and would like more information about studying at CTBS!
