Missionary Baptist Seminary
Missionary Baptist Seminary is an institution founded in 1934 in Little Rock, Arkansas, which seeks to educate and train pastors and other Christian workers. It is affiliated with the American Baptist Association, the denominational organization of Missionary Baptist churches based in Texarkana, Texas.
On its website, the seminary espouses Bible teaching, personal salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, and the manifestation of Christian belief through a submissive spirit and good works in the community.
The seminary is owned and operated by the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. It superseded the previous Missionary Baptist College in Sheridan in Grant County in south Arkansas, which closed in the Great Depression. There were three key founders of the seminary: Antioch church pastor Ben M. Bogard, founding president J. Louis Guthrie, and Conrad N. Glover, board member of the former Missionary Baptist College. The seminary seeks to provide affordable but outstanding Bible teaching and training.
Dr. Carroll Koon, the seminary president, is one of the three admnistrators of the seminary, located at 5224 Stagecoach Road. There are eight faculty members with specialized fields of concentration.
Other Missionary Baptist seminaries are the Texas Baptist Institute and Seminary in Henderson, Texas, and the Louisiana Missionary Baptist Institute and Seminary in Minden, Louisiana.
