A personal note from the President
It is my distinct joy and delight to introduce Faith Baptist Bible College to you. I hope that you will take time to read through this note carefully.
Choosing a Bible college perhaps is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. The number of Bible colleges in India is growing very rapidly. Unfortunately, serious confusion prevails in the area of theological education in our country. Some colleges pursue liberal theology and have jettisoned biblical orthodoxy at the altar of intellectual pursuit. Instead of building up the man of God for the work of God, they break down the very foundation of our faith. Yet there are other theological colleges which sacrifice biblical conviction for the sake of convenience. In this theological confusion, Faith Baptist Bible College and Seminary attempts to provide a balance theological training.
We have several distinctives that justifies our existence and continuation. Our commitment to the authority of the Scriptures is unwavering and total. The Scripture is the ultimate standard by which all our beliefs and practices are to be judged. We believe in the full inerrancy and the inspiration of the Scripture. Our high view of the Scripture is reflected in our Doctrinal Statement. This trustworthy biblical position is the outcome of sound biblical hermeneutics based on a historical, grammatical, contextual and literal interpretation of the Scripture. Our theology is "theo-centric" rather than "anthropo-centric". Our doctrines are not from "below" but from "above". We hold a premillennial, pretribulational, and fundamental theology.
Our mission is clear and well defined. We desire to impact the lives of the students, leading them to godly living. We desire to impart adequate biblical knowledge so that they may carry out the ministry in this generation effectively. We want to infuse a godly zeal for world evangelism and church planting. Our curriculum is Bible centered and so designed as to foster the above goals by imparting solid biblical knowledge, promoting godly character and encouraging students to win lost souls.
We seek to maintain a high academic standard without sacrificing biblical orthodoxy. We continually challenge students to biblical scholarship while holding fast biblical convictions without compromise. We try to provide an environment where students are motivated to think for themselves and to make right choices. Here the students will learn various issues of contemporary Christianity and will develop a discerning spirit.
We emphasize godly living. The hostel rules are to help the students to discipline their lives. The teachers are selected carefully so that they may be an example to students to discipline their lives. The teachers are selected carefully so that they may be an example to students in biblical scholarship as well as godly living. The teachers are always available to counsel, help, guide, and interact with the students. Every individual student is important to us and we believe that they are our investment for the future. Here each student receives personal attention, and we consider each one as a part of the Faith Baptist Bible College family.
Our college is located in a village away from the hustle and bustle of city life, providing a serene environment for theological studies. Our library is well equipped with a sufficient number of books and theological journals primarily from an evangelical persuasion. The presence of a well-experienced, dedicated, and godly teaching staff is a blessing indeed. The college already has students from various parts of India representing 14 language groups and has turned into a “mini India”. This is an ideal place for equipping one spiritually and intellectually for the ministry of the Lord. It is our humble prayer that the Lord will enable us to commit precious biblical knowledge to faithful men, who will be able to teach other also (2 Tim. 2:2)
