A Word from the Provost
We welcome you to the Cameroon Baptist Theological Seminary, (CBTS), Ndu. We are an institution of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, located in Ndu in the North-West Region of Cameroon. Founded in 1947, CBTS has a standing tradition of commitment to the inerrancy 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 honour 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 at the Bachelors level. Our Masters’ program is divided into two streams: The Master of Divinity Program (3 years) for those who obtain their bachelor’s degree from a secular university; and Master of Arts Program (2 years) for those who obtain their bachelor’s degree from a theological institution. We are committed to spiritual and academic excellence and equally committed to ensure that the accreditations standards are stringently respected. CBTS benefits from strong partnerships with some of the best seminaries in Africa and North America, e.g. the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary Ogbomoso, Nigeria and Sioux Falls Seminary in the United States of America just to mention a few.
Ndu Town where CBTS is situated is a very conducive environment for studies and has all that you will need in order to study comfortably. The climate is cold and has two seasons: the dry season and rainy seasons. It is indeed a welcoming environment and you will not regret living in Ndu for your studies.
It is our privilege to serve you, if you have sensed God’s calling on your life to proclaim His word. We will give you the training you need in order to fulfill that calling. Conscious of the fact that we are training Ambassadors for Christ, which is our motto, we seek to provide the most rigorous academic and spiritual preparation you need in order to represent Jesus in a worthy manner. This is done in an atmosphere where Jesus Christ is loved and worshiped above all as the Son of God. We are thus a community committed to excellence in our love, worship, and service of God. At CBTS, you will be called upon to “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
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 their lives in you, shaping, and forming you into being the kind of gospel minister the Lord delights in for His service.
If God is calling into the gospel ministry, CBTS is the best place for you to consider. We are here at your service and will provide the best of help that you need as you pursue God’s calling in your life.
