Greetings from East Texas Baptist University, home of the Tigers! The mission of East Texas Baptist is to stand as a committed Christ-centered institution of higher learning boldly. With this distinct calling to Christian education, we are called to inspire and impact our students by forming minds and hearts in the cultural mandate of transforming humanity for God's glory.
Our primary focus through the ETBU educational experience is developing the whole student – intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically – an unwavering commitment to the transformation of mind, spirit, and body.
We allow our ETBU students to mature and develop in a loving and supportive campus environment, where students are nurtured and empowered to achieve educational and career goals. The ETBU Family seeks to encourage students to develop their calling by understanding how to integrate biblical faith, academic learning, and vocation in whatever and wherever God calls. Through the lens of a Christian worldview, students are challenged to study and learn from the foundation that all truth is God's Truth.
As a Tiger student and future ETBU graduate, you will receive an excellent education as we strive to reflect the excellence of Jesus Christ in all we do...and that begins in the classroom with the renewing of the mind and extends throughout college life with the transformation of the heart.
Here at ETBU, you will experience a Christ-centered community...a university, passionately committed to serving others for the glory of God. We believe in the calling to live as Christ-like servant leaders, and we challenge our students to follow that model for their lives as students and as future Tiger graduates. We invite you to consider ETBU for your college home prayerfully. Our prayer is that you come to understand that God has a distinct purpose and future for your life.
