Purpose and Mission

West Coast Baptist College exists to develop servant leaders with a heart for God who are committed to the Word of God, compassionate toward the lost, and compelled to change communities for Christ in the twenty-first century.

Our goal is to provide a balanced Christian education, which will fully equip born-again people with Bible doctrine that is distinctively Baptistic and centered in and through the local church. Our mission is to ensure that every student is “throughly furnished unto all good works” (II Timothy 3:17). This kind of training involves the head, the heart, and the hands.

Educating the Head

Academic excellence is achieved through balanced curriculum that is effectively communicated by qualified and experienced instructors. Our faculty are engaged in continuous study themselves in God’s Word and their fields of expertise so that students can be properly challenged academically. Students are challenged to know truth, grow in the truth, and show that truth to their culture in their actions and reactions.

Engaging the Heart

At the heart of education is an education of the heart. Simply knowing God and His Word will produce mechanical ministry at best. Weekly church services and daily chapels keep the student’s heart in tune with God’s heart. Revival meetings, mission conferences, youth conferences, and devotional times help to keep the right balance at West Coast between the head and the heart.

Enabling the Hands

Because West Coast Baptist College is under the leadership of a local New Testament church, what is learned in the classroom and burning in the heart of the student, can now be immediately used in ministry to people. Each student is involved weekly in soul winning and some facet of the ministry of Lancaster Baptist Church. Students are not only taught the ministry, but are able to observe that ministry in action each week, and then participate themselves in that which God has called them to do.
