President's Message

It's a great pleasure to welcome you to East Texas Baptist University! This is an excellent University for students who are interested in the best in learning, living, and faith. One of the advantages of the American system of higher education is the great diversity of institutions, and ETBU is one of only a few remaining distinctly Christian universities.

At ETBU, we believe that all truth is God's truth so we study and learn from a Christian worldview. Most colleges and universities in our nation today separate faith and learning. We integrate them. And, while we accept students of all faiths and no faith, we are unapologetically committed to fulfilling God's call for us as an institution under the banner of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 If you or someone you know would flourish in a university setting characterized by close community, meaningful interaction, excellent teaching, robust student life, and a desire not just to earn a degree but to also fulfill God's purpose for his or her life, explore our website and then come to campus and experience for yourself why we are so excited about East Texas Baptist University.

Go Tigers!
