Our Vision is to honor the Lord by equipping and inspiring Christians with the educational skills necessary to fulfill the Great Commission.
Baptist University was founded in 1973. As a pioneer in distance
education LBU has had over 30 years to develop a delivery
system that is extremely student friendly and effective. Every
course is designed to meet or exceed national norms. Many
of the textbooks are the same ones used by Louisiana State
University and other major universities. We also offer several
seminars and workshops each year so that students can interact
with faculty and compliment their self study.
better meet the academic and professional development needs
of the student, LBU continually seeks to improve the quality
of the institution. For this reason, LBU is semi-annually
examined by an independent review committee comprised of ministers
and educators. LBU is one of five approved colleges and universities
of the Baptist Bible Fellowship International of Springfield,
Missouri. The BBFI is a fellowship with over 4,000 churches
in the United States and several foreign countries.
do not strive to pattern our institution after the humanistic,
shifting systems of secular education. It is the goal of LBU/LBTS
that in everything we do we exalt the Name of Jesus Christ.
Virtually all of our students are in some way involved in
the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom. They serve around
the world as ministers, educators, counselors or Christian
you for considering LBU. If we can be of further service to
you please feel free to call or email any of our staff.
