In 1924 Northpoint Bible College (Formerly Zion Bible College) was founded by Rev. Christine Gibson for the purpose of preparing men and women for Pentecostal ministry. The school started in East Providence, Rhode Island, and 1985 relocated to Barrington, Rhode Island.

We also offer a one-year certificate and an Associate of Arts degree in Bible and Theology. For graduates, we offer a MA in Practical Theology.

The Student Council serves as a liaison that provides for an exchange of ideas, concerns, and information between the student body, faculty, and administration. This body consists of four officers (including a president and vice president) six class representatives, and the class officers. This organization has been very effective in constructive dialogue and policy review. The Student Council is also an excellent opportunity for students to develop leadership skills and to learn styles of conflict management.
Research and reference needs are more than adequately met in the approximately 45,000 volumes housed in Northpoint’s library. Students may also access EBSCO Periodical Databases to complete research projects. In addition, thousands of periodicals, audio tapes, and video tapes are on hand. The Haverhill Pulbic Library is within walking distance of the campus as well.
Each dormitory is equipped with basic first-aid supplies for immediate response to minor injuries. Should a student need further medical assistance, a number of medical facilities are located within a few minutes of the school.
Northpoint Bible College Degrees (on-campus and online) are fully accredited through the Association for Biblical Higher Education.
