Greetings in the name of our reigning Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you for visiting the website of the Midwest Center for Theological Studies. We are glad you are here! We are grateful for your interest and hope you find everything you need to guide you in exploring what Midwest Center has to offer.
Midwest Center is committed to informed scholarship with a pastoral heart. Both through our distance learning program and for students who choose to move to Heritage Baptist Church and study with us here, we are committed to offering the highest quality of scholarship. Though we teach our courses with pastoral ministry in mind, we also teach them with an eye to current trends in important theological debates. If you choose to move to be among us, we are also committed to giving our students here ongoing involvement in their lives through pastoral visits and our mentoring program.
MCTS is founded on a commitment to the 1689 Baptist Confession. For us it is the finest historic confession available to the church today. MCTS fully subscribes to it and insures that all our teaching remains faithful to it. It is the confession of Heritage Baptist Church where MCTS is located. In this way you may be assured that the teaching you receive through MCTS is not novel, but reflects the great tradition of Reformed Baptist thought growing out of the Reformation.
The Lord Reigns,
Dr. Sam Waldron, Academic Dean
