About Canadian Baptist Theological Seminary & College

We're committed to investing in the lives of men and women who will be used by God to help people understand His Word and how to apply His Word in today's complex world.

Vision Statement

It is our vision to train God-called men and women for twenty-first century leadership in tough places. We want to foster in the next generation of leaders a desire to go into difficult places, and to face courageously the challenges that confront us there.

As we embark on future decades of ministry, we believe the work of our school has never been more critical.  The small group of churches that began the school has grown to well over 400 churches today, with a persistent vision to grow to 1,000 churches spread throughout every region of Canada.  Our school is playing a pivotal role in the realization of that vision.  Year over year God dispatches more alumni to regions in Canada from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast, and northward toward our expansive Territories.

The church-planting vision of the Canadian National Baptist Convention has thoroughly captured the imagination of many students, and they are daring to venture into Canada’s tough places for the sake of Christ and the expansion of His Kingdom.  And in addition to our alumni serving in Canada we have other alumni who have spread to regions around the globe, serving as missionaries.  The missionary zeal that was infused into our school at our inception has resulted in graduates who have chosen to leave Canada to go to places that are tougher still.

What we believe

Our beliefs and Statement of Faith is closely tied with the Canadian National Baptist Convention.

Erected to the Glory of God

At CBT, like Caleb, we are asking God to give us the hill country (Joshua 14:12) and we are not referring to the Rocky Mountains that frame our splendid western view. We are looking for students who want to be equipped to serve in the hard places, whether that is in a remote village in the Yukon, in downtown Vancouver, or in an international missions setting.

As our school seeks to engage lostness across Canada, students are provided many opportunities to participate in ministry as part of their training.

With a low student-to-faculty ratio, CBT affords students an excellent opportunity to interact with mentors and teachers. In addition to their doctoral degrees, professors have spent many years in ministry as pastors in North America, and as international missionaries in places like Croatia, Portugal, Hungary, Scotland, and South Africa.

Come and see what God might have on His heart for you at the Canadian Baptist Theological Seminary & College in Cochrane, Alberta.
