Pentecostal Theological Seminary

Cleveland, Tennessee, United States
Throughout our history, we have worked to provide students with a mature voice for Pentecost. The roots are planted firmly in the Church of God and Pentecostal traditions, and we are constantly seeking to explore the depths of Christianity through these roots.



The story began in 1975 when General Overseer Wade H. Horton presided as our first president. In 1976, we sent our first class of graduates into the world, and the PTSeminary tradition of kingdom-enriching alumni began.


The mission of the Pentecostal Theological Seminary is to form, support, and resource women and men for Holy Spirit-filled, Holy Spirit-led Christian ministry in today’s world. The Seminary is dedicated to carry out this task as an act of obedience to God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. 


PTSeminary is the denominational seminary for the Church of God, headquartered in  Cleveland, TN. The Seminary understands itself to be the church gathered for theological education in the Wesleyan-Pentecostal tradition. PTSeminary is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) to offer 6 Master’s and 1 doctoral degree programs.
