About the Center for Biblical Studies

The vision of the Center for Biblical Studies (CBS) is to engage in biblical scholarship for the church—for pastors and serious students of Scripture committed to the authority of God’s Word. To that end, the CBS aims to exhibit scholarly excellence and biblical fidelity in ways that are hermeneutically sound and in keeping with historic Christianity and Baptist confessions of faith. The CBS also seeks to serve the Midwestern Seminary community and beyond by facilitating academic discussions, producing quality resources, and sponsoring biblically focused events.
