A Word From The Provost

We welcome you to the Cameroon Baptist Theological Seminary (CBTS). We are an institution of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, with two campuses, one in Ndu and the other in Kumba (North West Region and South West Region of Cameroon respectively). We also operate five Distance Learning Centers in major cities of the country (Yaounde, Douala, Bamenda, Bafoussam). Founded in 1947, CBTS has a standing tradition of commitment to the inerrant and absolute authority of Scripture as the infallible Word of God. We believe that God uses His Word for the salvation and sanctification of mankind. As such, we are committed to training Bible-saturated, Christ-centered, and Spirit-filled Bible expositors who will honor Jesus by faithfully preaching and living out His word.

CBTS is one of the outstanding theological institutions in Cameroon, accredited with the Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA) at the Affiliate level. That therefore means that  CBTS has international recognition. Certificates obtained at CBTS will be recognized by accredited theological institutions around the world. Our programs provide the best of theological education that can stand all the context based challenges of ministry and life. We offer programs from the Certificate of Women’s Ministries Department to the Masters level. We offer specializations in Bible and Theology; Pastoral Care and Counseling; Evangelism and Missions; and Bible Translation and Linguistics as the Bachelor’s level.

Our Master’s program is divided into two streams: The Master of Divinity (MDiv.) Program (3 years) for those who obtain their bachelor’s degree from secular universities; and Master of Arts (MA) Program (2 years) for those who obtain their bachelor’s degree from a theological institutions.

We are committed to spiritual and academic excellence and equally committed to ensure that the accreditation standards are stringently respected. CBTS benefits from strong partnerships with some of the seminaries in Africa and North America, for instance the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary Ogbomoso, Nigeria and Sioux Falls Seminary in the United States  of America just  to mention a few.

CBTS is blessed with the best resident, part-time, and visiting
faculty who are men and women who love Jesus and are committed to training men and women to influence the world for Him. This faculty will invest in you, shaping and forming you into the kind of gospel minister the Lord delights in for His service.
