    President’s

    Message

    This catalog will be a wonderful help to you in

    discovering something of the essence and mission of

    Midwestern Baptist College, SBC, the undergraduate

    division of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Let

    me point out to you several of the exciting elements of our

    task and assignment.

    First, it is ―God-given.‖ We genuinely believe that

    education is an extension of the Great Commission and

    therefore, part of God‘s assignment for us. The Lord Jesus

    instructed His disciples to make disciples, ―teaching them to

    observe all things‖ that He had commanded. Those words

    encapsulate all that we are about, discipling disciplers and

    multiplying the multipliers.

    God has set the agenda for our ministry and it is

    contained in its fullness in His holy and trustworthy word,

    the Bible. How rich and wonderful the Scripture truly is! It

    points us to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. It

    contains His truth and teachings, which we are to apply to

    our lives and follow with all of the energy God gives us.

    Midwestern is dedicated to studying and applying the

    Bible‘s truths to our lives in fulfilling His mission.

    Secondly, our mission is ―church-driven.‖ It is the

    church of the Lord Jesus, as expressed through the

    Southern Baptist Convention, which supports this

    institution. It is her that we serve as we help train and

    supply evangelists, pastors, teachers, missionaries, and

    servants for the ―Body.‖

    The church is God‘s one established entity for the

    evangelization of the world. The more responsive we are in

    ministering to her, in helping plant new congregations and in

    the revitalization of plateaued or declining fellowships, then

    the closer we are to being in on God‘s ultimate plan to bring

    the world to Himself! We are and always will be church-

    driven.

    Thirdly, we are all about ―Biblical living.‖ Believing the

    Book, which we do unreservedly, is vital and all-important.

    It is, however, just the first step to the final objective and

    that is the application of its truths. That is why Midwestern

    sees Biblical living as its ultimate objective. It teaches us

    how to order our personal lives, how to relate to others, and

    perhaps most importantly, how to walk in fellowship with

    Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    Additionally, Scriptural truths are meant to be lived out

    in the life of the believer through evangelism, discipleship,

    stewardship, church planting, burden bearing, and being salt

    and light to a tasteless, decaying, and dark world.

    Education and training for ministry are never ends in

    themselves. They are avenues of preparation for service in

    the Kingdom of God. As you consider God‘s plan for further

    training and instruction, remember that God‘s Word has

    commanded each one of us to ―study‖ in order to show

    ourselves approved unto God (2 Timothy 2:15). Midwestern

    offers you God‘s best in professors, courses, and spiritual

    growth, so that you can be the best servant of Christ

    possible!

    Thank you for taking the time to peruse this catalog.

    Paper and print alone, with all of the facts that they represent

    can never, however, communicate the full spirit and heart of

    a God blessed institution like Midwestern. Plan on visiting

    us as well to see, hear and experience all of these features for

    yourself.
