opened its doors in 1973 as a local church ministry of the Massillon Baptist Temple. In 1986, the Board of Regents of the state of Ohio granted approval to MBC. This is not an accreditation but recognized the college as offering “college level” courses in Bible related degrees. The early establishment of Temple Bible Institute was the foundation of the current Bible College. Since those early days of the college, there are well over 600 graduates serving on 6 continents in over 20 nations of the world. Graduates are serving as pastors, assistants, missionaries, evangelists, music directors, Christian educators, and secretaries.
