Programs of Study
Temple Baptist Theological Seminary initiates its work with two keystone degrees: the Master of Arts in Ministry (MAM), and the Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies (MABTS). These degrees are designed to provide quality training and preparation for ministry, biblical preaching and teaching, and advanced studies with professional and research doctoral degrees.
The 30-credit hour Master of Arts in Ministry provides students with an introductory biblical and theological framework that adheres to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 and equips students for effective ministry in a wide variety of settings through selected biblical and ministry courses. The degree is designed to help students develop a biblical, theological, and pastoral framework for leadership and ministry that is academically rigorous, praxis-oriented, and facilitates the growth and development of missional leadership for the twenty-first century Church.
The 48-credit hour Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies is a research focused program that adheres to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 with the purpose of augmenting biblical preaching and teaching in the church or general ministry, teaching in a Christian school, or preparing the student for pursuit of advanced degrees. The student will work in concert with an adviser to focus the curriculum toward a specific end goal. The design of this degree program trains students to rightly interpret the Word of God and communicate theological truth in order to strengthen the church and her mission.
