Redeemer Seminary (also known as Redeemer Theological Seminary) is an Evangelical, Reformed, Christian theological seminary based in Dallas, Texas with a branch in Austin.

History[edit]

Redeemer Seminary in Dallas was originally founded by Westminster Theological Seminary as a Texas campus in 1999 before officially becoming an independent institution in 2009 with an inaugural address by Dr. Timothy J. Keller of New York.[1] Westminster Seminary itself was founded in 1929 after breaking away from the Princeton Theological Seminary (founded 1812) over theological disagreements regarding liberal and conservative interpretations of the Bible within the Presbyterian tradition.[2] Redeemer has faculty members ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America, the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.[3] Faculty members have published numerous books[4][5] and been referenced by news publications.[6]

Programs[edit]

The Seminary has several programs, offering a Master of Divinity (M.Div.), Master of Arts in Religion (M.A.R.), Master of Arts (M.A.) and Certificate of Christian Studies.
