Welcome! Thank you for considering Maranatha Bible College. We are a family of Christ followers who have taken seriously the call to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our purpose and vision is “For Christ & His Church”. How do we practically live this out? We do so by creating places where believers can grow in their devotion to Christ through the in-depth study of His Word; in an intimate, practical, and academic way.
