The Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary (CBS) is an evangelical seminary in the Baptist tradition, located in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. It currently enrolls just over 100 students and provides master's and doctoral degrees to clergy candidates across various conservative Baptist denominations. The school is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
The school was founded by Dr. Robert Jordan, the minister at the Calvary Baptist Church of Lansdale. In 1979, just prior to the graduation of the first class, the state of Pennsylvania approved the school for official seminary designation. Initially offering only a Master's of Divinity degree, a Master's of Theology program was added in 1985. In 1986, the school became a doctoral institute, as it added a Doctor of Divinity program. Two more degrees, which relate to missionary work and religious education, were added in 2004.
