A Message From the Director
When our Lord Jesus ascended, he did not rearrange the stars to proclaim the Good News like a great cosmic billboard. Nor did he leave a host of angels to get the message out. Jesus established the Church to do the job. And he left leaders who were prepared and equipped to guide the Church.
He still works that way, through people like you who have given their lives to Him and feel a sense of call to do ministry in His name. Fuller Theological Seminary Southwest is here in the Southwest to answer that call. Our mission is to: Prepare leaders, passionate for Christ, to do effective frontline ministry in a broken world.
Fuller Southwest is a special place filled with people who seek to carry out the Great Commandments and the Great Commission. We are a Christian seminary. We care about your spiritual formation. We are a graduate seminary. We will work your mind. Here you have the opportunity to study the Old Testament, the New Testament, Church History, Theology, Ethics, Philosophy, Christian Spirituality, Preaching, Evangelism, Christian Formation, Counseling, Leadership, Management, and Mission. You even have the chance to experience the joy of taking Biblical Hebrew and Greek. (Trust me, they're fun!)
Why study these things?
- So that you might better love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind.
- So that through academic rigor you might not only be passionate, but also informed about your faith.
- So that you might better understand the riches of Scripture, the Church, and the wondrous God who is revealed in Jesus Christ.
- So that you might better lead the Church in this pivotal time.
- So that you and I might reach the world for Christ by caring for the needy and sharing the Good News with a world that hungers for it.
