Hello Brethren,
My name is Prem. I live in Nepal (South Asia). I am a recent M.Div. graduate from a non-denominational Bible College in Nepal. My M.Div. was a module-based degree where I took almost 22 subjects as modules including Biblical Theology, Christology, Ecclessiology, Hebrew I & II and Greek I & II. But I am not fully satisfied with what I could learn in this modular M.Div. therefore I would like to upgrade my theological understanding.
Do you recommend any theological seminary for my Post-M.Div. studies: Master of Theology (ThM)? I want to grow stronger in the Calvinistic, Reformed Faith, I believe in the Credo-baptist (believer's baptism), I am also convinced with the amillennial position of Eschatology, Complementarian on Gender Roles, Ceassationist in the area of some spiritual gifts.
Kindly suggest me any theological seminary holding to the Reformed Baptist Faith (probably 1689 LBCF). I have searched web to find such seminaries in Asia, but not found any yet. It would be helpful even if the seminary is in Europe or America.

Thank you,
Prem K. Bhattarai

Brother, you might just have to settle for a paedobaptist seminary. I’m not aware of any Baptist institution (at least in the States) that holds to all these distinctives and that also offers post-MDiv degrees.

Furthermore, don’t feel like you need to find a seminary that mirrors you exactly in every theological distinctive. In fact, it might do you some good to be challenged in some areas. Some of the greatest Baptists in American history, after all, were trained at Presbyterian seminaries. A good example is James P. Boyce, the founding professor of Southern Seminary, who studied under Charles Hodge at Princeton.

You might consider Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. They're not a baptist seminary, but they have baptist faculty. They should meet the rest of your criteria, and they're very theologically sound.

To study for an MDiv, I would recommend a seminary that is closer to home, Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Dehradun, Uttarakhand
www.ptsindia.com
I know that it is Presbyterian not Reformed Baptist. Friends who are Reformed Baptists from Ramgran in southern Nepal attended PTS and were pleased by the education they received.
The suggestion of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary https://prts.edu is good for several reasons.
1. It is academically solid.
2. Puritan Reformed is literally across the street from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, a credo-baptist school. Grand Rapids Theological Seminary is affiliated with Cornerstone University. www.cornerstone.edu/seminary
3. A substantial Nepali ethnic [Nepali refugees from Bhutan] community exists in Grand Rapids.
4. Besides Puritan Reformed and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary there are two other seminaries in the Grand Rapids area. Calvin Theological Seminary, has a wonderful library, but is no longer a sound confessional school. www.calvinseminary.edu Across town Protestant Reformed Theological Seminary is a rigorous confessional school. www.prcts.org

Does anyone know the theological perspective of "Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary"?
Dispensational or ... ?

That's news to me. Who is a Baptist there?

The below after a quick skim of the faculty/staff...perhaps there are others I overlooked.

- Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin, Adjunct Professor of Historical Theology.
- Dr. David L. Turner, Adjunct Professor of New Testament
- Paul Smalley, Assistant to Dr. Joel Beeke

Evidently they have a lot of Baptist students. I've seen quite a few recent works published by Reformation Heritage Books that are by Baptists who are Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary graduates.

Amen and amen! All good reasons for our paedobaptist brethren to attend Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary!

I would echo what Taylor is saying here; you should not expect a seminary to be an echo-chamber. Go to somewhere that is generally orthodox, where you will get your mind stretched, and which will best equip you for future ministry.
