Bethel Seminary is a vibrant, Christ-centered educational community. Our students bring unique backgrounds and interests, but share a common goal: to become whole and holy persons. It's a transformational journey-working hard in our studies, growing deeper in faith, and serving our community.

We serve a diverse student population from two campuses in the United States and electronically through a variety of online programs. The University student body consists of 6,600 men and women from 49 states and 31 countries.
