TO CHRIST
despite all
WE HOLD

A Time-Tested Curriculum

In 1929 Westminster’s founder, J. Gresham Machen, vowed that the seminary would not provide training of the “customary superficial kind,” but rather offer profound, Christ-centered preparation. Today, more than 90 years later, we remain faithful to that mission—and it drives our commitment to equip you well through teaching the Whole Counsel of God.

A RICH HISTORY

The story of Westminster began with a bold act of vision. This is still our spirit today.

“But to Christ, despite all, we hold.” These are the words from founder J. Gresham Machen that launched Westminster almost 100 years ago—and they have remained true to Westminster’s conviction ever since.
