Special Notice

At the present time, classes at the Tulare Missionary Baptist Seminary have been suspended. Should the demand once again present itself, TMBS will resume active operations at that time. The Tulare Missionary Baptist Church is thankful to our gracious Lord, Who so blessed us through the seminary effort. We are confident that His Kingdom was served through those labors, and will be again, should that prove to be his will. We pray God's blessing upon all those touched by the teaching here, as well as the men whose faithful endeavors were so instrumental in that teaching.


Thank you for your interest in the Tulare Missionary Baptist Seminary. This is a serious Bible school! This school was established in the fall of 1995 after much prayerful consideration. The purpose of this school is to provide the highest degree of excellence and integrity of educational opportunities for men who seek to prepare for the ministry.

We do not make preachers in this school; rather, we are committed to equipping those whom God has called into the ministry of His Word with the tools necessary to ascertain the accurate meaning of the Scriptures.

This school is owned and operated by the Tulare Missionary Baptist Church. We intend to provide the very best Bible education possible at the minimum cost. While the curriculum of this school is designed for Pastors, our doors are open to all Christian workers, especially from our sister churches, who desire to increase their knowledge of the Bible.

We currently offer all courses necessary to complete the 2-year Associate of Theology and Associate of the English Bible, the 4-year Bachelor of Theology and the Master of Theology programs. In addition to these programs, under extraordinary circumstances, the Doctor of Theology program may be made available to those outstanding students who demonstrate aptitude and commitment to pursue excellence in their study of the Bible. The Doctoral program is offered exclusively by invitation. No honorary Doctorates will be awarded by Tulare Missionary Baptist Seminary.

Obviously, all that has been accomplished and that which is proposed is dependent upon the blessings of our great God.

We covet the prayers of our brethren in this undertaking to the end that this school will be of value to the churches of the Lord Jesus Christ!

We welcome inquiries from anyone desiring information regarding any aspect of this school and the programs of study available.

Dr. Scott E. Brooks
