Introduction to the Programme
The BD in Theology with Pastoral Studies invites students to explore issues of Scripture and Christian belief, lived ethics, Christian spirituality, and mission. Students engage with the biblical story, and in a supportive context explore the range and richness of Christian theology and history in order to discover and develop ways of living out strong convictions and an informed faith.
The BD programme at SBC aims to be both informative and formative. This takes place when what is believed is earthed in practice and is shaped and developed in a supportive community context.
For those studying for Baptist ministry, the key competences required by both the Baptist Union of Scotland and the Baptist Union of Great Britain are integrated into the overall learning experience.
