Baptist Bible College exists for the primary purpose of preparing men and women to pursue selective Christian ministry careers for which the Bible major is foundational or essential.

Baptist Bible College & Seminary offers an outstanding, accredited Christian education through on-campus, online, and distance learning options. Our graduates are in great demand in a variety of ministries. Their education prepares them to lead effectively anywhere in the world.
God calls ministry leaders. We equip them.

As a comprehensive educational institution, we offer 38 degree programs from the one-year Bible certificate to the Doctor of Ministry and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, including the Bachelor of Science in Bible and several master's degrees.

Our approach to education centers around the study of God’s Word. Our biblically grounded general studies go hand in hand with a solid core of theology and practical courses.

We believe you should understand what you are taught. You should ask challenging questions and engage in thoughtful discussion. Our aim is to guide you as you develop the core convictions and biblically based beliefs that will prepare you for success in every area of life.

Our highly qualified professors bring a wealth of knowledge and ministry experience to the classroom. They join their commitment to the Bible with innovative teaching techniques. The combination gives you the best possible learning experience.

An average class-size of just 19 students allows professors to focus on your individual needs and abilities. Your learning takes place in a comfortable, interactive environment.

Our campus offers you numerous opportunities to fill important leadership roles and participate in various student activities throughout your college years.

You’ll find that our lively campus offers a wide-variety of options for your down-time. Whether you’re attending one of our many campus socials, participating in a school activity (link to Activities page), enjoying a coffee at our Underground Café (link to page), cheering-on one of our sports teams, or just hanging out with friends in one of our residence hall lounges, we guarantee that our campus will provide you with a safe environment for just having fun.

Our goal is to provide a positive atmosphere where you can expand your leadership capacity, explore your gifts and abilities, utilize your creativity, and make memories that will last for the rest of your life.

Our campus in the suburban area of Clarks Summit is about 10 miles from Scranton, the largest city in Northeastern Pennsylvania and the county seat of Lackawanna County. It is an area both rich with history and focused on growing its economy in areas of industry and technology.
