Eden Theological Seminary is a seminary of the United Church of Christ in Webster Groves, Missouri, near St. Louis, Missouri.

The seminary was established in 1850 by German pastors in what was then the American frontier. The pastors soon formed the German Evangelical Synod of North America. This, after subsequent mergers, became a part of the UCC. One of the early campuses in St. Louis became Normandy High School. The school was augmented by a merger with the Central Theological Seminary, an institution of the Reformed Church in the United States in Dayton, Ohio in the 1930s, concurrent with the merger of the two denominations into the Evangelical and Reformed Church.

Conversations at Eden Theological Seminary, beginning in 1937, led to the 1957 merger of the E&R Church and Congregational Christian Churches and the formation of the United Church of Christ. Famous alumni of Eden include Reinhold Niebuhr, H. Richard Niebuhr, and Walter Brueggemann.

Eden Theological Seminary supports a campus size of less than 1,000 students and offers on-campus housing and dormitories to its student body.

Eden's mission statement reads, "Eden Theological Seminary is called by Jesus Christ to be a school of the church. Eden is called to strengthen and support the life and mission of the church by educating pastors and teachers, enlivening critical reflection on faith, and encouraging Christian discipleship."
