Wesley Biblical Seminary ( exists to educate and train men and women who, in fulfillment of the Church’s mission, will live and proclaim Trinitarian faith, promote the Spirit-filled life, and in full commitment to the absolute authority of the Bible, actively make disciples of Jesus Christ. Located in Ridgeland, MS, the seminary is a non-denominational institution rooted in the Wesleyan Holiness tradition and has been equipping students with the knowledge and skills to communicate the gospel to a world that needs a Savior for almost 50 years.

Students graduate with hearts passionate about God’s will, minds trained to understand God’s word, and lives ready to serve in God’s mission. Wesley Biblical Seminary is a rare institution that affirms both the
inerrancy of Scripture and the necessity of holy living for every Christian. In an increasingly pluralistic world, we contend that the Church needs leaders who are committed to the truth of Scripture and who can set an example with their lives. The institution is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools, the Mississippi Commission on College Accreditation, NC-SARA, and the Association of Biblical Higher Education.

The seminary also has approval from the Department of Defense and the State Approving Agency for qualifying military personnel (active duty and reserve) and veterans to receive educational funds from the Department of Defense and Veterans Administration. The Immigration and Naturalization Service of the United States Department of Justice (SEVIS/SEVP) recognizes Wesley Biblical Seminary as an educational center for international students.

The seminary is a member of the National Association of Evangelicals.
