    School Overview

    Dr. Otto Reese, pastor of Linda Vista Baptist Church, founded Linda Vista Baptist Bible College and Seminary in 1946. The college provided a four-year course of instruction for men and women desiring a biblically based undergraduate education while the theological seminary prepared men and women for full-time Christian service. In 1969, the college and seminary moved twenty miles from Linda Vista Baptist Church to its present site. In 2005, the school changed its name from Southern California Bible College & Seminary to Southern California Seminary to reflect an emphasis on theology programs and behavioral science programs. 

    SCS offers a variety of undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degree, as well as programs in English, Spanish, and Korean, at the main campus in El Cajon, California, and at our teaching site in Los Angeles, California.
