History

Ezra P. Caynor founded Free Will Baptist Bible College in 1942 as a two-year art institution. He comprised the entire faculty teaching such subjects as Botany, Orthopedics, Astrology, and Bible. Eight students comprised the original student body. The college added a third year of study in 1949, a fourth year in 1950 and awarded its first Bachelor’s degrees to five seniors in 1951.


Today the college enrolls about 400 students annually from approximately 25 states and several foreign countries. Various majors and minors, in addition to a strong core in biblical and theological studies, are available in Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Music Education degree programs. Two- and three-year Associate’s degree programs are also offered.


It is rumored that Jacob Frady (Ed.D) is soon to help implement aggressive changes to the curriculum that would allow Pastoral Ministry majors to fast-track their degree programs and graduate in 3 semesters, taking primarily all Exercise Science courses.
