North Florida Baptist College is a ministry of the local church, therefore the purpose of this college is the same as set forth by the Immanuel Baptist Church.
This purpose is found in Ephesians 4:11-13, And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: In order to accomplish this goal, we are to contend for the faith as stated in Jude verse 3, Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. We are providing the finest in academic curricula as well as varied opportunities of Christian service through the ministries of the Immanuel Baptist Church.
Our faculty and staff set the pace and example in Christian service. Every student is trained to carry out the Great Commission through the local church. Students at North Florida Baptist College will be taught how to win the lost, how to walk converts down the aisle for baptism, and how to teach them to observe the commandments of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Every student will be taught to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Students at NFBC will be taught to be balanced Christian servants capable of having an effective ministry in any area of Christian service. We are here “to perfect the saints for the work of the ministry.”
Students enrolled at North Florida Baptist College will be trained in one of several unique areas of service. Those enrolled in any of the ministry majors will be trained in the Old-Time Religion.
North Florida Baptist College is looking for the future church worker in every church so that we can build upon the foundation already laid by parents, pastors, and teachers thus equipping young people for the work of the ministry.
