In 1807 he became pastor of Pine Street Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. He received the Doctor of Divinity in 1810 from the College of New Jersey. He is most noted as founder and first principal of Princeton Seminary serving there from 1812 to 1840. As principal and professor of theology, he is considered the first of the great "Princeton theologians." He continued as professor at Princeton until his death in 1851. He was buried in Princeton Cemetery.

Charles Hodge, a famous student and successor of Alexander, named his son Archibald Alexander Hodge after his mentor.

"Do not for a moment suppose that you must make yourself better, or prepare your heart for a worthy reception of Christ, but come at once - come as you are." -- Archibald Alexander
