The deacons of Faith Baptist Church voted unanimously on April 16, 1984, to establish the institute as a ministry of the church and named the three cooperating pastors as the Board of Directors. The school was born as Berean Baptist Institute in the fall of 1984, offering a three-year Graduate of Theology diploma. In keeping with the Institute’s purpose, the first students were a combination of those seeking to improve their knowledge and skills for ministry as lay people in their current churches as well as those who had committed themselves to full-time Christian ministry. Today, Veritas Baptist College “exists to equip men and women for dynamic Christian service and leadership in Bible-believing churches by providing higher education that emphasizes academic excellence, spiritual development, and preparation for ministry, both lay and professional.”
VBC offers associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in ministry, biblical studies, and Christian education. Several degrees at all levels can be earned completely online.
