Life Changing.Those two words best describethe Faith experience. Through sports teams, Chorale trips, overseas internships, summer ministry teams, or every day classes and dorm life, students have life changing experiences.
Close to 9,000 students over the past 90 years have enjoyed these life changing experiences, and we would like to see that number significantly increase over the next 90! You can play a major role in the overall success of Faith.
Would you help us by giving us the names of students who would be a good fit at Faith? You may use the form below to do so. We appreciate your partnering with us as we look to increase the number of students who will have life-changing experiences at Faith in the years to come!

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 very happy that we sent our daughter to Faith Baptist Bible College because she loves it there, she has made so many friends there, and she is learning a lot! We also really appreciate the friendly, helpful staff at FBBC!

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.
Ronald and Tami Post
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.”
Kevin and Carla Mungons
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.

A Pastor's Perspective
We have trusted Faith with some of our most prized possessions—our children! Both my wife and I are graduates of the college. Now as a pastor, I have encouraged other young people to attend Faith. Three of our children have made Faith their college home too. Ronnie and Aaron went first, and Ronnie graduated in 2012. Aaron’s time at Faith prepared him for his current pursuit in the medical field. The same spiritual quality, standards, and excellent Bible teaching that were there when we attended are still hallmarks of Faith today. The friendships that they made have been spiritually impacting, and I have no doubt that they will be a lifelong resource for them.
My belief that Faith is a great school was further strengthened when our daughter, Elizabeth, began classes in the fall of 2012. It is different when you send a daughter to college. Her parents have to be sure she will be safe. She had quite a bit of athletic success in high school, and private as well as public schools were recruiting her. We looked into several of them, but they simply could not compare to Faith. Faith’s staff and faculty, academics, church support, and safe social environment made Faith her first choice . . . and ours.

Faith Baptist Bible College is a valuable resource for pastors and youth pastors. Over several years, I have sent young people from my youth group to Faith. Without fail, God has used the Bible classes, chapels, and one-on-one discipleship there to continue them down the path of sanctification. Each individual returns with a needed passion for God and service.
The emphasis we pastors place on service for Christ is reinforced daily and exemplified openly at Faith. Students are required to be involved in service in a local church. In addition, students get numerous opportunities for hands-on ministry experience through mission trips, ministry teams, and local church internships. I have seen firsthand how our students have grown in their sanctification as they have ministered across the country and around the globe. What we teach in the church is reinforced, not undermined, at Faith.
A major advantage that Faith provides is their full accreditation. Many parents are justifiably concerned about the value of the degree at a school. Due to Faith’s accreditation, graduates are able to obtain employment in their desired fields, and undergraduates are able to transfer their credits if desired. This opportunity allows me to effectively and safely promote the value of Faith to concerned parents. I consider Faith a valuable resource and commend the school to all.

What Others are Saying
“I recommend Faith because I know its graduates will have more than knowledge. Faith instills passion for service, balance in ministry, historic dispensational theology, and loyalty to Christ’s church. Churches need Faith graduates as pastors more than at any other time.”
President, Baptist Church Planters
"I'm so thankful for Faith and the commitment the school has for teaching God's Word and for providing opportunities for implementing God's Word through ministry in local churches."

“I am not a pastor, but we did send all three of our children to FBBC and all of their spouses are graduates of FBBC. My oldest son is a youth pastor, my second son is a senior pastor, and my son-in-law is a youth pastor. We were pleased when our children chose FBBC because we knew the training they would receive would reinforce the values and priorities we sought to instill in them through our admonition and example. Their craving for ministry and their skills for service are a reflection of their training. We thank the Lord for FBBC&TS.

President, Baptist Mid-Missions
“I am thankful for the impact Faith has had on our staff members at Camp Patmos. I know Faith students are grounded in God's word and are willing to stand on that foundation. Their commitment to ministry is not just lip service but life service.

“Our church emphasizes the importance of ministry. Our school, Shiloh Hills Christian School, seeks to recruit teachers who reflect this same philosophy. Frequently we find men and women who desire a job but not a ministry. Faith produces graduates who have a Biblical emphasis on ministry.”
