Mark D. Baker (Ph.D., Duke) is Professor, J. B. Toews Chair of Mission and Theology at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary.

I am a Mennonite who has authored a number of books in English and Spanish. I have taught at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary (formerly Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary) since 1999. I previously was a missionary in Honduras for ten years and a campus minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for three years. I have continued ministry involvement in Latin America through regular visits. Since 2008 I have led a weekly Bible study at the Fresno County Jail.

Some of the areas that I have taught and written about include: atonement, contextual theology, Galatians, ethics of freedom, centered-set church, Anabaptist ethics for contemporary life, honor-shame, Jacques Ellul, and Latin America.
