The professors of the School of Christian Ministries are experts in their field and evangelical in their theology, grounded in biblical truth and committed to the historic tenets of the Christian faith. In addition, these men and women faithfully live out the realities of following Christ, lovingly invest time in students and actively serve Christ’s church.

Helping Students Serve the Church and the World

The School of Christian Ministries offers a variety of academic programs to accommodate such varied interests and goals.

Some programs are designed specifically for those who plan to enter vocational ministry. Others are designed for students who work toward other majors. Many CBU students who select other majors still choose to double major or minor in one of our programs, taking advantage of the opportunity to grow in their insight into the Bible and Christian worldview, as well as their ability to serve the church and the world.

Regardless of their intended career, students who study in the School of Christian Ministries will be biblically centered, theologically grounded, historically informed, philosophically conscious, ethically engaged and practically equipped.


California Baptist University (CBU) is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). Regional accreditation by WSCUC means you can be confident that your CBU degree is recognized and respected by schools and companies across the country.
