Bible Department

Division of Biblical Studies

Dr. Dan Rushing
Dean of Biblical Studies

The purpose of this division is to prepare Christian servant-leaders with a knowledge of the Bible, to develop their discernment to rightly divide the Word of Truth, and to equip them to take the gospel of Christ to the world.

This division comprises the Bible department, which offers undergraduate Bible degrees along with graduate degrees and certificates offered under the auspices of Pensacola Theological Seminary.

Content-based approach

Pensacola Theological Seminary has a biblicist approach in its graduate Bible program in contrast to the pseudointellectual approaches of our day. In an attempt to be academic, many focus on teaching erroneous views of liberal theologians. The goal of our Bible program is not to fill our students’ minds with doubts and questions raised by liberals, but rather to fill our students’ souls with the Word of God itself. At PTS, meditating on God’s Word and ministering with God’s Word go hand in hand.

Practical ministry preparation

Service is the essence of ministry, and true leadership is impossible without a servant’s heart. Pensacola Theological Seminary prepares servant-leaders to share the gospel boldly, preach the Word clearly, and shepherd the flock faithfully.

Vibrant spiritual life

The vibrant spirit of PCC is a hallmark of the Seminary. Daily chapel, dynamic preaching, and local church ministry are all designed to prepare the student for spiritual leadership. Cultivating the disciplines of the heart is emphasized.

Flexible scheduling

Whether by distance, a modular class, or a traditional semester class, PTS offers students maximum flexibility for completing degree programs. Choose a modular class or summer session for face-to-face instruction or choose a video course to fit your busy schedule. Either way you decide, you can earn a degree and still continue your ministry responsibilities.

Christian school applications

Since many local churches have Christian day schools, PTS offers courses in Christian school management that train pastors to effectively lead a church-school ministry.

Conducive study atmosphere

Caring, knowledgeable faculty; modern, well-equipped facilities; and a warm, friendly campus stimulate learning and creativity.
