The Master of Divinity degree is geared toward men desiring a lifetime ministry of Christ-centered expository preaching and shepherding of the local church. Students entering into the Master of Divinity Degree program are required to hold a bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent, with a grade point average of 2.75 or above on a 4.0 scale. Students not meeting grade point requirements may be admitted on a provisional basis and evaluated at the end of the first quarter of attendance.
Diploma and Bachelor Students
A select number of applicants who do not hold a bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent, may enter The Cornerstone Seminary to obtain a Diploma of Theology or a Bachelor of Theology depending upon how many undergraduate college credits they have. In these cases, the Seminary will evaluate the student’s academic and life experiences to ensure adequate preparation for graduate study. If admitted, these students’ academic progress will be monitored and evaluated after the first quarter of study. The requirements for receiving a diploma or bachelor degree are the same as the requirements for receiving a Master degree in this program.
During my seven years of study and training at The Cornerstone Seminary, I have been sharpened, humbled, equipped, encouraged, challenged and loved. I am thoroughly convinced of the sufficiency of Christ and His Word, the indispensability of the Holy Spirit to gospel ministry and the centrality of preaching the Scriptures.
Nick Haight, Pastor, The Cornerstone Bible Church
The professors and staff have not only filled my head with knowledge about Christ but have also encouraged a greater passion within me to proclaim His name. I have gained a wealth of knowledge from them not only in the classroom but also from their experience in the ministry.
Richard Manrique, Assoc. Pastor, Rockville Bible Church
My training at Cornerstone has been a joyful challenge as we have been consistently taught to be shepherds who are biblically Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered and passionate about proclaiming the Gospel among the nations in a local church context.
