Fairview Baptist Bible College exists to train men and women who desire to serve God in local church ministry and missions. Although originally established to train servant leaders in Jamaica, we also welcome students from other countries in the Caribbean as well as North America.
FBBC was established on January 4, 1963, by Rev. Roland Smith and Mr. Robert Clubine to train pastors for the newly established Association of Independent Baptist Churches in Jamaica. The college later expanded its scope to prepare individuals from various countries for ministry in Jamaica, the Caribbean and the world. The first class consisted of six men, four of whom graduated on May 6 1966.
In May 1997, the administration of the college was transferred to the Association of Independent Baptist Churches in Jamaica. A board, comprised of members from the A.I.B.C., was established as the governing body. Fairview is supported primarily by love gifts from individuals and churches in Jamaica and abroad. Since its inception it has trained over 400 men and women for ministry.
Recently FBBC has expanded it programs and capital improvements have included the building a new library and administrative offices.
"I enjoy the fellowship of the students and the lecturers here are so great at rightly dividing the Word of God. I have learned so much which has contributed significantly to some of my preaching successes. Now that I am better equipped for ministry, I would one day like to take the initiative to lead a mission team out of Jamaica to further spread the Gospel of Christ."
