Our Mission is:

"Establishing students in the eternal and inerrant Word of God for a life of faith in Jesus Christ and faithful service in His Kingdom."

 This means we equip students to understand Scripture for themselves, grow in their understanding of the Gospel, navigate their culture with a biblical worldview, and find their place to serve in the local congregation. We believe this is accomplished best through a holistic educational approach that includes academic study, intentional community, and ministry experience.

“God’s love is so evident at FLBC. The light of Jesus shines through the professors, coaches, students, and staff, and it is such a blessing to be in this environment which is preparing me for a life of service in God’s kingdom no matter where I may go. Through basketball, community activities, and each class, I am learning what it means to be a true follower of Christ.”

—Gracia Rolf, current student

“FLBC has been a place of reflection and growth for me. My classes are pushing me to consider the truths of God’s Word, helping me observe different characteristics of God, and making me a better man. In my life, God is making all things new!”

—Micah Holt, current student

"I left high school with plans to be a teacher. Through my time at the Bible College, God shifted my focus to full-time student ministry. Not only did I make incredible friends, but I became better equipped to study God's Word and to teach it to others."

—Daniel Hurner, Pastor of Youth and Family Ministries

“At the beginning of the year, I was unsure of why I was here. At the end of the year, I was amazed to see how God had answered all my prayers. God knew the areas in my life I needed to grow my faith and He grew me—It was not me. When I came to FLBC, I felt that my relationship with God was just a personal matter. Now I see that I want to invest in the church and be a member of the body of Christ, because it is such a gift.”

—Magdelena Grotberg, Class of 2023

"FLBC is where my faith became much more personal. The knowledge I gained at Bible School was great but it was wrestling with it and figuring out what that looks in my life. God used the people at Bible college (both my classmates and teachers) to strengthen my faith and bring me closer to Him in such a real way. My time at FLBC encouraged me to go into any vocation with a ministry mindset—whether at work or at home I can share the love of Christ with others.”

—Stephen Quanbeck, Class of 2011

 "I decided to come to FLBC because I wanted to grow in my relationship with Jesus and grow in my knowledge of Him as well. I am so happy I decided to come to this college because God is already doing so much work in me. He is reminding me daily of the undeserved love and favor He has for me through the people I meet and the classes I take. I am learning to trust Him with every little thing and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for me!"

—Janay Helms, Class of 2023
