OUR DISTINCTION

Since 1946, the Apostolic Faith Bible College, including Faculty and Staff, have the unique distinction of being fully funded and supported by monetary gifts and freewill offerings from Alumni, family, and friends of the Apostolic Faith movement. Each student accepted by AFBC is required to pay a one hundred dollar ($100.00) registration/book fee (non-refundable) per school term. It is our goal to offer those who are "called according to His purpose" and desiring to increase their spiritual knowledge and understanding of the Bible, a place with minimal financial burdens. In order that we may continue offering a tuition free college, we prayerfully request that the AFBC, and students be financially supported, as much as possible, by their home church, family, and friends.

OUR MISSION

The mission of AFBC is to provide opportunities for individuals to develop academically and intellectually in a Christian educational program and to inspire these individuals in a Pentecostal environment to develop spiritually, emotionally, and culturally in order to serve God and their fellow man in their gifting and ministerial callings and their secular chosen careers.

OUR VISION FOR DEVELOPING STUDENTS

The vision of student development at the Apostolic Faith Bible College is that all students will be in the process of becoming mature and competent Spirit-empowered agents for the Kingdom of God in those areas of life (such as family, church, community and professional environments) where their AFBC education will afford them the opportunity to have significant influence.


Objectives

As a result of the positive environment of a Christian college, students will develop spiritually, gaining greater awareness of their significance in Christ and increasing in their commitment to serve Him. Socially students will grow in their relationships with others in the Christian community and in surrounding cultures. Individually they will mature in personal discipline and Christian character.
