WBS: A Seminary with Heart

Wesley Biblical Seminary exists to train men and women to be effective ministers of the gospel. Our founders wanted to “teach the few to reach the many.” For forty-five years we have been equipping students with the knowledge and skills to communicate the gospel to a world that needs a Savior. Students graduate from WBS with hearts passionate about God’s will, minds trained to understand God’s word, and lives ready to serve in God’s mission.


Our foundational beliefs give us purpose and shape our lives. WBS is an interdenominational seminary rooted in the Wesleyan-Methodist Tradition. WBS is deeply committed to the Truth of the Bible and the necessity of Christlikeness.

- Beliefs


Founded in 1974, WBS has equipped men and women as ministers of the gospel for more than 45 years. The seminary has been shaped by godly leaders to educate pastors and church leaders around the world.

- History


The professors at WBS are authors, pastors, teachers, and disciple-makers. They are equipped to handle the rigors of the academic world, while remaining sensitive to God’s Spirit in their lives. These professors are not only academics, but they are also practitioners who are engaged in pastoral ministry and in the life of the church.

Why WBS & Why Now

WBS is the rare seminary that affirms both the inerrancy of Scripture and the necessity of holy living for every Christian. In an increasingly pluralistic world, the Church needs leaders who are committed to the truth of Scripture and who can set an example with their lives. You can become that kind of leader at WBS.
