Word Theological Seminary is a Bible based, Christ-centered, online religious institution of higher education. We exist for the sole purpose of preparing followers of Jesus Christ for Christian ministry.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the ultimate teacher of our students. We provide a biblically sound and academically rigorous curriculum, and a highly qualified and talented faculty. Students are invited and encouraged to study theology in an ongoing attitude of meditation and prayer. Jesus promised to continue to train believers for ministry through the work of the Holy Spirit.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
John 14:26 (New King James Version)
