The mission of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (NOBTS) is to equip leaders to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandments through the local church and its ministries.
Since 1917, NOBTS has equipped leaders to answer God’s call. It was the first institution created as a direct act of the Southern Baptist Convention. Missions and evangelism are core focuses of the seminary. Leavell College is the undergraduate program of NOBTS.
