New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was founded in 1917, initially named Baptist Bible Institute. It was the first theological institution to be established by direct action of the Southern Baptist Convention. It was originally created as an undergraduate institution modeled after Moody Bible Institute. With the lapse of time, the school began to move toward graduate level training, and in 1946 the Convention renamed the institution New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
The primary assignment of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is to equip leaders to accomplish the Great Commission and the Great Commandments through the local church and its ministries. The Seminary offers Doctoral, Master, Bachelor and Associate degrees. Dr. Charles Kelley is the current president of the seminary.
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate degrees.
The graduate programs of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary are accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.
