Our Purpose

Florida Bible College continues to mature believers in Jesus Christ into fully-committed, biblically grace-oriented, knowledgeable, articulate, balanced, evangelistic disciples who are faithful, competent, and effective in serving as the hands and feet and voice of Jesus in the world ,and in His church.
 
Since its inception in 1962, Florida Bible College has been committed to offering comprehensive education in the Bible for those who know Jesus Christ as Savior and want to serve Him.
 
Our salvation begins with the grace of God through the clear and simple message of everlasting life by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9). It is by this same grace that, as God's workmanship, we are being refined into His image as mature disciples (Ephesians 2:10).
 
We are called to live in the wonderful grace and liberty in Christ, for it is in this environment of freedom that we are designed to flourish.  The fruitful and victorious life of a mature disciple of Jesus Christ is not achieved or characterized by a strict adherence to a legalistic moral code or by the avoidance of a lengthy litany of prohibited behaviors. 
 
Regardless of how He gifts us, or in what capacity He chooses to use us, by His grace we can be diligent students of His Word, and faithful evangels to the world.  Florida Bible College can equip you to be an effective communicator who can share the faith in such a way that those you teach will be able to teach others. "You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." (2 Timothy 2:1, 2)
