Faith Theological Seminary was a conservative, evangelical Christian seminary in Baltimore, Maryland. It was founded in 1937[1] in Wilmington, Delaware, moved to Philadelphia in 1952, and then moved to Maryland in 2004.[1]


John Gresham Machen died on Jan. 1, 1937, and Faith Theological Seminary was founded the following summer by Allan Alexander MacRae, Harold S. Laird, Carl McIntire, and several other conservative Presbyterians who wanted to continue to distance themselves from the liberalization occurring in the Presbyterian Church (USA).[1] Allan MacRae served as the first president of FTS from 1937 until 1971.[1] FTS initially used the facilities of the First Independent Church of Wilmington (later Faith Bible Presbyterian Church), pastored by Harold Laird.[1][2][3] FTS grew in size and moved to Huston Hall in Wilmington in 1941,[3] then to Lynnewood Hall (the former Widener estate) in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, in 1952.[1] Carl McIntire served as president from 1972 until 2002, when Norman Manohar became president.[1]

Faith Theological Seminary was officially independent of any specific denomination's control, but there was considerable support from the Bible Presbyterian Church, which was also founded in 1937 by many of the same individuals who founded the seminary. FTS was "closely identified" with the American Council of Christian Churches and the International Council of Christian Churches.[3]

Faith Theological Seminary lost its accreditation from TRACS in May 2020 and the state of Maryland has suspended the degree granting privileges. It has closed its doors with teach-out plan implemented with Lancaster Bible College and Capital Seminary.[4]


Faith Theological Seminary offered a Bachelor of Arts in Religion, a Master of Divinity, a Doctor of Ministry, and a Doctor of Theology degree. The institution was accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) but lost accreditation in May 2020 and correspondingly lost Approval to operate in the state by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC).
