International Baptist College (IBC) opened for its first semester on September 8, 1981 with fifteen full-time students. TBC founding pastor, Dr. James Singleton realized that there were very few places to train young men and women for the gospel ministries that would uniquely meet the needs of the West, yet become international in scope and ministry. 


International Baptist College & Seminary degree programs offer a high quality, accredited education that is a mix of foundational theology and practical ministry know-how.
