East Texas Baptist University’s legacy, beginning with the establishment of the College of Marshall over 100 years ago, remains committed to Christ by meeting students where they are and propelling them to where God has called them to be. With another year of record enrollment, ETBU continues to proclaim God’s truths and equip His disciples as described in the mission statement.
As a Christ-centered institution, East Texas Baptist University educates students by integrating biblical faith and learning to develop mind, body, and soul through community engagement to prepare graduates to be Christian servant leaders in their calling to God and humanity.
The ETBU student experience is characterized by Christian faith integration. Through ministries, missions, chapel, worship, Bible studies, discipleship, and prayer, students encounter the Lord and discover His plan for their future.
Taught by faculty pursuing excellence in Christ, students receive individualized instruction and the resources necessary to succeed. ETBU programs provide an accessible and affordable avenue for students to earn a quality, Christ-centered education.
ETBU Nursing, ranked eighth in the state, consistently achieves record pass rates on the NCLEX and 100% of graduates receive job offers upon graduation.
ETBU now offers multiple graduate and undergraduate programs, recently adding a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, Bachelor of Clinical Lab Science, Master of Science in Kinesiology, Master of Education in College and University Leadership, Master of Education in School Counseling, Master of Arts in Christian Ministry, and the Tiger Transfer Track Program.
Students receive opportunities to apply course content outside of the classroom: service learning initiatives, student organizations, intramurals, club sports, and NCAA athletics.
Actively involved in revitalizing the community, ETBU partners with local ministries to promote economic growth in Marshall, address poverty, and show Christ’s love.
