Bethlehem College and Seminary

A nonprofit organization

Our aim is to give students an intense immersion in a God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated local church that combines rigorous study with church-based application, all to the end that they might joyfully magnify the infinite worth of Jesus Christ, and live for the praise of God’s glory in reflection, thought, word, and deed.

Would you join us by making our students and their teachers 
a part of your personal ministry for Jesus Christ?

  • Shaped by a Disciple-Making Culture
  • Forged through Community and Experiential Learning
  • Concerned for the Lost, Poor, and Oppressed
  • Characterized by Humble Authenticity and Courage
  • Devoted to the Priority of Worship
  • Committed to Global and Multi-Ethnic Expansion of the Kingdom


Our Programs

College: Graduate as a mature adult ready to witness for Christ with wisdom and wonder—in any vocation—for the rest of your life.

God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in him. Spend the next four years relishing this great truth as you mine the treasures of the Bible and consider the Great Books—works of history, literature, philosophy, and theology that have stood the test of time and resonated with human beings through the ages and around the world.

Seminary: Shepherds equipping men to treasure our Sovereign God and Sacred Book for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ.

Think of it as in-the-church training for biblical elder-level leadership in pastoral ministry, missionary service, or future theological scholarship. In this, our flagship program, a small cohort of 18—20 men share a four-year journey of rigorous biblical language and theological studies, real-life experiences in church leadership and congregational care, as well as a host of cross-cultural ministry opportunities all in the context of a globally-minded church and its local plants in this multi-ethnic urban center.

Evening Programs: Well-educated people are people who have the habits of mind and heart to go on learning what they need to learn to live in a Christ-exalting way for the rest of their lives.

These programs are for working adults, men and women, who are interested in gaining biblical Greek language skills and a better understanding of God-centered reformed theology. This program is not designed to build the foundations for pastoral ministry (i.e. preaching and counseling classes), but rather to encourage effective workplace ministry, flourishing family life, and more theologically minded pastors, ministry staffs, and missionaries.
