Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (BTSR) is a free-standing seminary in Richmond, in the U.S. state of Virginia. It was founded in March 1989 by Virginia Baptists related to the Southern Baptist Alliance (now the Alliance of Baptists) and Baptist General Association of Virginia. In the late 1980s, as the situation began to change in Southern Baptist Convention during the conservative resurgence/fundamentalist takeover, others in the region joined them in seeing the need for alternative options for theological education among Baptists. BTSR is also affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada, BTSR offers the Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies, and Doctor of Ministry degrees.

Under my feet.”
