What Sets Us Apart

Expository Preaching

Expository preaching is the hallmark ministry of a pastor consumed with the glory of God and the centrality of Scripture. We equip students to faithfully exegete and exposit the biblical text, whether as a preacher behind the pulpit, or a professor behind the lectern.

Personal Holiness

We are devoted to fostering personal holiness in every area of life, throughout each program of study. For this reason, we provide an environment of learning that includes discipleship, a devotional approach to teaching, and Seminary Wives Discipleship.

Global Missions

Our commitment to global missions is rooted in our view of Scripture and a desire to see every tongue, tribe, and nation reached with the gospel. TMS alumni serve all over the world and lead their local churches to missionary efforts.

The Local Church

Our conviction that men should be trained for ministry in the context of the local church through life-on-life discipleship is shown through our relationship with Grace Community Church and the churches who host our distance locations.



Our Chancellor Emeritus

John MacArthur is The Master's University and Seminary chancellor emeritus, and serves along with the Board of Directors. He is also the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church, and the president and featured teacher of the Grace to You media ministry. As a conference speaker and author of nearly 400 books and study guides, in more than two dozen languages, his commitment to verse-by-verse Bible exposition continues to influence believers around the world.


The Master's Seminary opened its doors in 1986. Its purpose was to train men of God, thorougly equipped for Bible exposition and local church ministry, through an emphasis on careful biblical scholarship, pastoral training, and personal spiritual growth.


Our mission is to advance the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping godly men to be pastors and/or trainers of pastors for excellence in Christian ministry.

Doctrinal Statement

The affirmations in our doctrinal statement carefully specify our teaching position with regard to the major biblical doctrines, and thus provide a framework for curriculum and instruction at the seminary.

Educational Effectiveness

Our programs ensure mastery of the skills and knowledge critical to success. Educational Effectiveness is shown through our rates of student achievement, graduation, and placement.
