As we began looking for a college for our girls, we had several expectations. We wanted a conservative Christian college that was Biblically solid and offered a strong elementary education program. As a dad, I was looking for a school that I could trust with our daughters. In the fall of 2009 we dropped off Chelsie, our first daughter, with some apprehension about whether Faith could meet our expectations. Three years later, we dropped off Chelsie and her sister, Kaylee, with full confidence that Faith was the right choice for our girls. We have seen growth in their Christian lives because of the godly atmosphere at Faith. Academically they have been challenged in their classes through knowledgeable and caring professors. We are thankful for the education and the experiences that Faith Baptist Bible College is providing for our girls.
A solid doctrinal stand and a sharp ministry focus were two of the reasons we sent all our sons there. That is very important to me as a father and especially now as a pastor. I've been able to see how our sons’ training at Faith has given each one of them a solid Biblical foundation to build on. My oldest is now in full-time ministry as a youth pastor, and my two youngest are currently training for the youth pastorate at Faith. One of my sons is serving the church I pastor as a deacon. I've been able to see firsthand how an education at Faith Baptist Bible College has been and will be a benefit to my family.
Dropping off our daughter at Faith was hard, knowing I wouldn’t see her for quite a while. Could she have gone to a community college and stayed at home? Sure, but God did not call her to do that. I think of all the blessings God has provided that she would not have had here: many wonderful Christian friendships; opportunities to be involved in God-honoring music ministry; Biblical teaching in chapels, dorm devos, and classes. God also provided a welcoming local church with people who have reached out to her. We have the assurance that Faith is exactly where He wants her to be. And while I miss her, that realization makes all the difference! I love hearing her joy when we talk. I have peace knowing that He is working out His plan, and our daughter is exactly where He wants her to be!
We are thankful that both of our kids chose FBBC. They are getting a great education academically; they are growing spiritually; and they are receiving good local church training.

We are thankful not only for the quality education John has received from Faith but also for the mentoring relationship he has with many of the dedicated faculty. And meeting his wife, Anna, was an added blessing!
Robert and Sheri Mathew
Our daughter is SO happy at Faith! She hasn't been homesick once. That's a great comfort as a parent.

It is great to have our daughter studying in our alma mater where the Word continues to be faithfully taught! We also appreciate all the people that love and watch out for her as she is so far from her home in Peru and adjusting to another culture. I’ll never forget the day I was leaving Raquel off last August. Dr. Maxwell said something like this to my daughter. “Any day you miss your Dad and need to talk to me, you just come and my door is open.” This has been the case with everyone from the president on down. Thanks!

Three of our sons have attended FBBC. We’re grateful for the way each professor connects a robust theology to practical, real-world solutions. Faith’s degrees are fully accredited and worth the investment.”

Faith was able to give my son the individualized personal attention he needed to make the transition into college easier.

The Registrar’s Office at FBBC is great to work with! They made the process of transferring our homeschooled student with post-secondary credits very easy.”

I’m so glad that at Faith our children have professors who do more than merely teach classes. They take a personal interest in our children and are available to give counsel and advice.
