History

Boston Baptist was founded in 1976 by A.V. Henderson and John Rawlings of Baptist Bible Fellowship International as Baptist Bible Institute East at Shrub Oak, New York. In 1981, the school moved to its present location in Boston. At the time of the move, the school was considered a branch campus of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. Beginning in 1993, the school began operating as a separate entity and ceased being a branch campus of Baptist Bible College in Springfield. In 1996, the school received accreditation from the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools. In 2002, the name was changed from Baptist Bible College East to Boston Baptist College. Officially, the name was changed in order to distance the College from other universities throughout the country that operated under the name of Baptist Bible college, although the name was also taken to reflect its location.

Academics

Boston Baptist offers BA and AA degrees in Biblical Studies.[3] Boston Baptist has been accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) since 1996.[4] The bible college is not regionally accredited.

Campus life

Student Government and the Director of Student Life organize activities for Boston Baptist students.
