Arab Baptist Theological Seminary

Welcome to Arab Baptist Theological Seminary

Founded in 1960 in the hills overlooking Beirut, the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) equips servant-leaders for the ministry challenges arising in the Middle East and North Africa – be it theology, apologetics, communication, pastoral care, ethics, society, or culture. To serve the Church in our region as it realizes its Biblical mission of having Christ acknowledged as Lord by offering specialized learning resources and equipping faithful men and women for effective service. Our degrees range from a Certificate in Ministry in the online program to a Master of Divinity in the residential program. We also have a Master of Religion (MRel) in Middle Eastern and North African Studies that is administered online with two on-campus residencies per year in Lebanon. All programs are taught in Arabic except for the MRel which is taught in English.

We are members of the following evangelical alliances or associations:-
