The Pembina Valley Baptist Church, in seeking to fulfill the Great Commission stated in Matthew 28:18–20, saw the need to establish a formal training center that would prepare men and women to carry on that mandate and tradition.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Therefore, the congregation voted to establish Canadian Baptist Bible College as an arm of the church to accomplish this task. The curriculum, purpose and atmosphere of Canadian Baptist Bible College is to train students in the Bible and to teach them the graces of the Christian life.
Our guiding verse is II Timothy 2:2: “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
