Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship

The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, one of the fastest growing and most influential worldwide fellowships in the church, has established a House of Study to develop and equip charismatic intellectuals for 21st century ministry. Desiring to become the people that God desires for us to be for the next generations, we are building upon our rich history and perfecting the way we do ministry in a spirit of excellence. As Full Gospel Baptists, we believe in the proclamation of both the eternal power of Calvary and the potential power of Pentecost; the baptizing Power of Jesus Christ for salvation because of Calvary; and, the filling/controlling power of the Holy Ghost for service and Holy victorious living because of Pentecost.

The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship is not a denomination of religious sect, but a Fellowship, which embraces all ministries, churches, individuals, or other constituents that acknowledge and accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; and it is inclusive to all baptized believers who acknowledge and accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, if you are willing to ‘lead forward’ and ‘change forward’ as led by the Holy Spirit, the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship House of Study is for you.


The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship House of Study will equip you to:

  • Maneuver cultural and congregational shifts for sustainable ministry
  • Learn the distinctives that have shaped and sustained Full Gospel for decades
  • Dissect the unique systems, strategies, and liturgical structure of our Fellowship

*The establishment and maintenance of Houses of Study at United Theological Seminary are dependent on sufficient enrollment.
