The Baptist Missionary Association Theological Seminary is a private religious institution located in Jacksonville, Texas. In 1950, the newly formed North American Baptist Association was invited by the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas to make the establishment of a seminary a priority.

Jacksonville, Texas was selected as the permanent site of the seminary and a groundbreaking ceremony was held in 1956. Classes began in 1957 with an enrollment of fifty-seven students from six states.
