CBAmerica Ministry Partnership
CBAmerica and Western Seminary's partnership stretches back to the foundation of the Conservative Baptist Association in the 1940s. This association of regional churches was formed for the sake of evangelism and church planting, with an uncompromised commitment to the Bible as God's inerrant and infallible word. Thanks to Western's shared theological convictions and commitment to conveying the gospel, CBAmerica trusts Western to train men and women to lead in their churches and missions organizations. That's why we've built a partnership to offer special benefits to staff of CBAmerica churches, CBAmerica offices, WorldVenture, and Missions Door.

Gospel-centrality for instruction and spirituality
The gospel is the power of God for salvation and the basis for lives of holliness on Earth. It far transcends any tips or tricks that we might offer about how best to minister. Each degree program we offer is built upon a foundation of biblical studies and hermeneutics, with an eye toward exploring how the the gospel is further unpacked through each book of the Bible. Even skill-based and spiritual formation courses are taught with an understanding that ministry should be fueled by connection to gospel-purposes, rather than pragmatism. The result of training like this is not only knowledge, but genuine transformation. See what our president has to say about the gospel...
