The Baptist Theological Seminary is located in the city of Novi Sad, in the northern part of the country of Serbia. We are a theological institution of the Serbian Baptist Union, dedicated to training pastors and Christian leaders for effective service. For over 70 years BTS has been training men and women for the pastorate and Christian leadership in and out of the church. Some of our graduates have gone on to obtain higher degrees from other institutions in Serbia as well as other countries.
The seminary started in 1939 in the capitol city of Belgrade, just before World War II. With the help of Southern Baptists the building was purchased for this purpose as the first students enrolled. Unfortunately, this new seminary had trained just one generation of leaders when the war stopped it at its beginnings. After the war ended, BTS moved to Zagreb, then to Daruvar and finally to its present location in Novi Sad. Godly men and women throughout the years of its ministry led it faithfully and contributed to what it stands for today - a solid educational institution for training Christian leaders and pastors.

Intro to Theology
You know when go to study theology, you're filled with all kinds ... you're given all kinds of tools and of course knowledge to understand God's word and to proclaim it to the church. That's kind of like a buffet, and when you have theological training, you get a buffet. And when you have a buffet, you get really full. And one of the things I noticed in the US is a lot of people come to theological training already pretty full. Whereas our students here in Vietnam, they come to theological training pretty hungry and in real need of the knowledge of the word and skills to understand it and proclaim it and apply it to the church and proclaim the gospel
