City Seminary of Sacramento

Established in 2000, it offers a seminary education to students from a variety of denominational backgrounds. It is dedicated to the philosophy that “no student called to the preaching ministry should be denied an education for financial reasons.” Since its founding, the seminary has raised private funding to supply all scholarship requests, so that students need not go into debt to pay for tuition.

The faculty are all from either the Reformed Church in the United States or the Presbyterian Church in America. The student body is drawn largely from Sacramento area churches and caters especially to older working students with families that cannot afford to leave their employment and travel to a distant seminary.

City Seminary grants undergraduate theology and divinity, as well as Master of Theological Studies and Master of Divinity degrees. This does not mean the state “accredits” the seminary’s degree programs, nor has the seminary sought secular accreditation. The curriculum is a classical reformed studies program that emphasizes proficiency in Greek and Hebrew, with a strong emphasis on presuppositional apologetics and biblical inerrancy.
