Overview

Overview

Maple Springs Baptist Bible College and Seminary says

Maple Springs Baptist Bible College and Seminary seeks to produce Christ-centered leaders with the values, knowledge, and skills required to fulfill the Great Commission. We seek to transform and prepare for ministry those with or without previous undergraduate training in the biblical area. We do this through a partnership of students, faculty and churches; academic discipline; and an affordable "open door" admission policy permitting the discovery, communication of and preservation of biblical knowledge and understanding in a unified community known as a Bible College-Seminary. We seek to ensure each student is grounded in a conservative, fundamental, evangelical biblical position in order to be an instrument of renewal and development for the Christian and world communities.

Philosophy

Maple Springs Baptist Bible College and Seminary was founded in 1986, under the leadership of Dr. C.A. McDonald, Sr., Pastor of the Maple Springs Baptist Church, to help provide trained personnel for the propagation of the Gospel. Dr. McDonald appointed Dr. Larry W. Jordan, the Minister of Education of the Maple Springs Baptist Church, to develop and implement the programs required to establish the Maple Springs Baptist Bible College and Seminary. Dr. Jordan designed and implemented the curriculum to prepare for the ministry those who have had no previous undergraduate training in the biblical area as well as those who have completed an undergraduate degree.

The Maple Springs Baptist Bible College and Seminary is an independent, fundamental, conservative, and for the most part, local church oriented Institution, meeting the need for leadership in an ever changing society. The College and Seminary is Baptist, both in belief and practice. It is committed unreservedly to the verbal-plenary view of inspiration believing every Word of the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. We are committed to the defense and proclamation of the Scriptures, upon which all true education has its foundation.
