Trinity Baptist College says

Trinity Baptist College was founded in 1974 by Trinity Baptist Church, and continues to be a ministry of this growing congregation with over 2,500 in weekly attendance. Dr. Tom Messer serves as Trinity's senior pastor.

The college is an Independent Baptist ministry. It has been accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, an institutional accrediting body, since September 25, 1997. TRACS is recognized and approved by the United States Department of Education and recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

Jacksonville, Florida is a growing city with more than one million in population. With an average year-round temperature in the low 70's, Jacksonville has an ideal climate. A great vacation spot and an open opportunity for ministry make Jacksonville a great place to live.

Our programs are designed to equip students educationally as they prepare for their future. The Bachelor of Arts degrees (Pastoral Theology and Missions), the Bachelor of Science degrees (Church Ministries, Elementary or Secondary Education, and Music), and the Associates degrees (Office Administration and General Studies) are designed to prepare students for all phases of Christian ministry. A large variety of proficiencies and teaching fields provide specialized training.

Several options for financial aid are available, including Federal Pell grants and various loans. Some of Trinity's programs have been approved by the State of Florida for Veterans to receive educational benefits. Students whose parents are in full-time Christian service also qualify for an additional scholarship.
