Discussion in 'Baptist Colleges / Seminaries' started by Jerome, Dec 3, 2013.
The school is not really independant baptist as those on this board would think of the term. In bygone years they were General assoc. of regular baptist approved but today I think they would be more in the conservative baptist assoc. mindset. (in other words evangelical rather than fundamental.)
They state on their website that their religious affiliation is "Independent Baptist".:wavey:
Doubt many inddys would agree Not really sure about the "university" part either, it is a very small school. It was Western baptist bible college then western baptist college then western college and then western and now corban.
I did some further checking, and Corban was associated with the Southern Baptist Northwestern convention several years ago; not sure if they still are. Corban's not listed on the sbc.net college and universities page.
Interesting: Once upon a time there was Los Angeles Baptist College and Seminary. The college is now in John MacArthur's hands, the seminary's now part of Corban, aligned with with Mark Driscoll.
Maybe they have the "independent" thing down (supporting missionaries directly rather than through a mission board, etc) and just not the necessarily the rest of the aspects of an IFBC.
Would be interested in reading the articles of their link to ifb and southern baptists. Also the link of MacArtur's school and Corban.
Los Angeles Baptist College was taken over by John MacArthur and became his nondenominational 'Master's College' in the 1980s.
I'm presuming the 'five year covenant' with the Southern Baptists was not extended. Western/Corban's Reno Hoff gave reports at the Convention until 2009.
Thanks, just looking for students I'd guess. They have been shifting/expanding
We've seen this before.
Most of the independent Baptist colleges all over the US were started by mega-pastors during or after the modernist-fundamentalist controversy in the 1910-1930s.
There's nothing new under the sun.
Hope it works out for Driscoll and the college. Say what you want about the guy and his ministry, but he has a large platform and preaches a saving Jesus Christ. I'm for that part of his ministry!
