The mission of Maranatha Baptist Seminary is to provide seminary education in biblical, theological, and ministry-related areas through several programs that are thoroughly committed to a dispensational, fundamental, and Baptist position and that provide education and development, both academic and practical, for men (and, within the confines of biblical restrictions of local church leadership, women) who are called by God into leadership ministries in Baptist churches as pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and servants in other church-centered ministries.
Coordinator for Hispanic Church Planting at Mission Gospel Ministries International and 2012 graduate Steve Kohnert speaks of the flexible nature of our programs, especially for those already in full-time Christian service:
At a middle-aged time in my life when I wanted and needed a quality, fully accredited, conservative seminary education, MBS was there for me. Their training was academically challenging and practically engaging. I was able to stay in my Virginia home, work in my pastoral ministry, parent my kids, and date my wife while taking virtual classes online with other seminary students who were in residence on campus. The start-up incentive scholarships were very helpful and the overall cost of the program was definitely a “best buy” choice on a long list of seminary options.
