Message From The Chancellor

Baptist Bible College strives to provide the highest quality education. Education must have balance in theory and
practice, providing the intellectual, practical, and spiritual skills necessary for one to be successful. Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Proverbs 1:1-7

The Institution affirms that God has provided absolute truth in Scripture. The Scripture is sufficient for life change and is the framework for historic Baptist teaching. 2 Timothy 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:3

The Institution has its standard that one’s purpose is to glorify Christ in all things: in thought, conduct, and motives. Jesus Christ is the standard and value of all things. Philippians 3:7-14; Colossians 1:17; 3:1-17.

The Institution educates and challenges students to adopt the value of continued learning that enhances their Christcentered ministries and marketplace professions. 

Proverbs 1:5; Philippians 3:13-14; 2 Timothy 2:15

Baptist Bible College EDUCATES, INSPIRES, and EQUIPS students to serve as effective Christian leaders.

You are welcome to come and grow with us!
