About Us

Our Story

Baptist Seminary of South India is a small, conservative, theological institution offering graduate programs with a focus on ministry in Asia. We started in 1998, with help from friends with Baptist Mid-Missions, and have developed into an indigenous team consisting largely of qualified and experienced pastors from local churches in the Bangalore area. Since 2008, the seminary has been functioning as a ministry under the board of First Baptist Church of Madurai. 

 

We exist to train students for ministry in and through the local church, and so we focus on sound exposition, biblical spirituality, and Christian service. Our M.Div. program is accredited by Asia Theological Association. Today, with a strong and dedicated team of teaching and non-teaching staff, BSSI stands committed to its mission, to equip God’s servants for the church in Asia, for the glory of Jesus Christ.
