Baptist Theological Academy (BTA), an intensive theological education center, equips generations of Christians to be useful ministers in the word of God. Indeed, its fundamental teaching on the word of God from a dispensational perspective creates a bright hope for educating earnest students of the Bible and also shapes them into an ideal pathway toward Christ-likeness.
BTA is committed to train faithful men and women to be able teach others also (2 Tim 2:2) and helps them achieve its goal to be approved of God, and not of men (2Tim. 2: 15). BTA also is committed to mold and shape its pupils to abide by bible based ethical disciplines which will make them useful vessel in the Master's hands. In contrast to the rapid rises of doctrinal declines in Christianity, BTA takes a stand for Word- centered academy so as to rightly divide the word of truth in order not to be ashamed (2Tim. 2: 15). For God's word and to the Glory of God, BTA stands!
Baptist Theological Academy sprung up as an institution "to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints" (Jude 3). Our motto is "the word of God for the work of God". As history proves, God carried out His work in accordance with His word. Any ministry that has no ground or root on the word of God is not worthy to be counted as the ministry of God.
Therefore, here at BTA, every effort is made to give the word of God the most important place and we broad based Word- centered academic curriculum that will help the student prepare for the ministry where to God had called. It is our trust that those who are established in the faith of the living and written word of God will only be effective instruments in the hand of God for the ministry of God.
With a rapid emergence on devaluation of the word of God, self-centered, cultured bound Christianity, our 21st century Christianity has sunk into a sea of compromise. But our unswerving faith and commitment to the scripture distinguished us from other non-biblical varieties. Our doctrinal system, being founded upon the infallibility of God's word, we encourage men and women "to study to show…. approved unto God" so that they will not be "ashamed" (2Tim.2: 15).
To accomplish this great task, Baptist Theological Academy prepares uncompromising theological system that will honor God and His word to generations to come, and also develops its curriculum from the irrevocable fundamentals of Christian faith. We believe, through Bible-based Academic standard and spiritual oriented atmosphere, a man of God can be thoroughly equipped, being approved of God he will never be ashamed in words or deeds in the sight of man and God to whom we will one day stand give our accounts before Him (Rom. 14: 12).
The very purpose of Baptist Theological Academy in training men and women is that they may be "Meet for the Master's Use" (2Tim 2: 21).
Giving a great importance to the purpose of God in "endowing gifts" to men (Eph. 4:12), and acknowledging the fact that God has given to each of us gift different from one another, Baptist Theological Academy offered course related to both Academic and ministerial skills. But, the overall purpose is to be "useful" for the master. .
The mission of Baptist Theological Academy in training men and women of God had a great expected outcome toward the trainees. In order to be “meet for the master’s use”, the institute provides both a sound theological curriculum wholly based on the word of God and practical opportunities to equip his or her spiritual life so that every trainee in Baptist Theological Academy will come:
Baptist Theological Academy is Fundamental Baptist Theological Institution whose purpose is to train men and women of born again believers for to be useful ministers of God.

Baptist Theological Academy is an Academic Oriented Bible Institute with mission emphasis. We believe that a qualitative academic program produces a mission minded servant as a result of a proper understanding of the Bible. Baptist Theological Academy gives equal importance, while not minimizing one or the other, to both the academic and ministerial emphasis. We believe that being ministry minded is a product of a sound academic.
