The Biblical Studies program at the Houston Baptist University states the fact that those who wish to study and communicate the truth of the Bible in its original context will enjoy the Biblical Studies major or minor in the Department of Theology.  


The Biblical Studies program at the Houston Baptist University  is especially appropriate for those who want to serve the body of Christ in a teaching and preaching role as a minister in a church, or as a missionary, someone in parachurch ministry, or whatever setting to which God calls you.
