Located near Paris, the Seminary of Evangelical Theology (FLTE) is a private institution of higher education that passionately trains Church and Mission leaders.
In line with the heritage of the Protestant Reformation and anchored in evangelical convictions, the FLTE receives the Bible as the Word of God and revelation of Jesus Christ, and places it at the heart of its training program.
Along the way, our students acquire the necessary tools to study it in depth and teach others.
The FLTE offers university-level training. Our professors, specialized in their discipline, are actively involved in research.
Our project is to encourage and nurture a high-class evangelical theological reflection.
Since its origins, the FLTE has been at the service of all the Churches. Its teachers and students come from the diversity of the evangelical movement.
Our community of spiritual life offers a safe space for debate and dialogue, which is essential factor for theological training.

In 1965, the four main French-speaking Biblical Institutes decided to establish, with the Association of Professing Churches, a university level theological training center: the FLTE was created in Vaux-sur-Seine, located some 40 km west of Paris.
The building of the campus in the 1970s made it possible to offer students, sometimes from very far away, accommodation on site. The research library and new classrooms followed, in order to meet the growth of students. Beyond the buildings, the training offer has also diversified over the years, in particular with a complete on-the-job and distance training offer. In the 2010s, the teaching staff grew and became richer, most notably with the creation of new full-time positions.
Since its creation, the impact of the FLTE on the French-speaking evangelical world has been significant, both in Europe, in Africa and Canada. Since 1965, nearly 1,300 students have been trained at our Seminary ! The quality of the theological reflection it has brought and the influence of the ministry of those it has helped to train have made it a reference seminary in the service of the Church and the mission.
The French-speaking Evangelical world needs a suitable place of study for the training of its leaders and for the work of its scholars. Furthermore, in its relationship to the academic world, French-speaking Evangelical theology counts FLTE as one of its main places of reference. In order to face the challenges of the next decades, FLTE aims to remain a center of theological excellence at university level for the French-speaking communities and envisages four areas of development.
