While Jesus Christ was on this earth, He devoted Himself to equipping men and women who would be His representatives after He returned to His Father. This was the ministry of discipleship that included the Great Confession (Matthew 16:15-17), His two Great Commandments (Matthew 22:37-39), and culminated in His Great Commission to them in (Matthew 28:19, 20): "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” And this is the precious message He entrusted to us as well (1 Thessalonians 2:4).
Jesus is the perfect model of leadership who perfectly fulfilled His mission. Now we are allowed to be a part of this exact mission. So in imitation of the Lord and by His power, we are called to devote ourselves to Jesus Christ and His mission of pouring our lives into people… training them in their responsibilities the Lord has entrusted us with and observing them grow in maturity and effectiveness for the sake of the gospel.
This is the mission of Florida Bible College -- to be a training ground where students of all ages come to prepare themselves for a life of lasting commitment to Jesus Christ, biblical faithfulness, moral integrity, intellectual development and lasting contribution to God's mission today. We are committed to providing deep spiritual life formation founded on God’s Word and the Holy Spirit through a consecrated love for Jesus Christ along with a Biblical world-view education that will prepare each student to make a Christ-like difference in each person’s world!
Because of our love for Jesus Christ, we want to train the finest men and women to take up the mantle of discipleship; presenting the Word of God correctly and the Gospel of Jesus Christ clearly, courageously, compassionately, consistently, and cheerfully to all the world for God’s greatest glory!
