Welcome to WBTS

We, at Washington Baptist Theological Seminary, seek to deliver a quality of basic education that is second to none. Anything less, in our estimation, would be robbery. Within the past 85+ years, the Washington Baptist Theological Seminary has taken great pride in going about the task suggested in Dr. Holloman’s treatise, “Gold Everywhere.” In that treatise, he inferred that in the most unlikely places, and among the most unlikely persons, gold can be mined, if the miners are determined.  

We, the Trustees and faculty, work to equip persons who are “furthest from the top” with the gold that has, heretofore, been almost exclusively refined at the Washington Baptist Theological Seminary.

Rev. Dr. John L. McCoy
