“We take pride in bridging cultures to
share the word of God.”
Each year, the excellence of education, the personal size, the encouraging character of the student body and the beauty of the campus and surrounding area draw new students from diverse cultures all over the world to Baptist University of the Américas. We take pride in bridging cultures to share the word of God: three out of every four Hispanic Baptist pastors in Texas attended BUA, and we have extension centers in three countries, with plans for further expansion. At BUA, we will offer you a full 4-year program of study, a superb personal scholastic environment, an outstanding faculty, affordable tuition, and a full range of scholarships and financial assistance.
Why choose BUA?
We are a vibrant Christian community with a heart for Hispanic cultures. We believe passionately in the Hispanic faith experience and how it uniquely prepares our students to serve the needs of the emerging multicultural world. Experts believe Hispanics will be the next great missionary force to cross the globe, while rapidly growing Hispanic populations in North America have created an urgent need for cross-cultural leadership. At BUA we will help you discover your cultural assets and how God has uniquely formed you to effectively serve in a variety of cross-cultural situations for the cause of Christ.
We bring a 70 year history of training Hispanic ministers to the task of forming the next generation of cross-cultural leaders.
In fact, BUA has provided 3 out of 4 Hispanic ministers that serve churches related to the Hispanic Baptist Convention of Texas and the Baptist General Convention of Texas. Not only do we have a proven track record for quality theological education, we have a future-focus on issues such as diversifying worship forms, urban ministry movements, innovative church starting models and new technologies for ministry.
