ABC Purpose and Philosophy


Atlanta Baptist College came to fruition as a result of a growing conviction that spiritually and geographically a real need existed for fundamental Bible education in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The congregation of the Liberty Baptist Tabernacle in Stockbridge, Georgia has been used of the Lord to meet this need.

The purpose of this institution is to provide quality, low-cost education for those who desire to work in a church ministry or to simply increase their knowledge of the Bible. The programs offered are designed to meet the needs of students seeking positions in the ministry or to better equip themselves to serve in the local church. In addition to a program designed for the normal full-time student, this institution desires to specifically meet the needs of the married and employed student.

The philosophy of ABC is based upon the Scriptural emphasis of the local church. We believe that the plan for training those called to the Gospel ministry which is nearest to that of the New Testament is that to this end that ABC seeks to provide the academic training in the classroom, while allowing the student to receive his practical training in the ministry in his own local church. We desire simply to assist our fundamental independent Baptist churches in the Atlanta area in achieving this goal.

While this institution readily accepts any born-again Christian on a non-discriminatory basis, all students must willingly comply with school policies. Furthermore, it must be realized that the same in philosophy of the chartering church, namely that of the historic fundamental Baptist position as stated in the doctrinal section. The King James Version of the Bible shall be the exclusively used text in all English Bible courses and the textus receptus in any Greek usage. A more complete explanation of this policy is available upon request.


ABC Statement of Faith


We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures.

We believe that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God's planned purpose in the ages.

We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe that salvation is "by grace" plus nothing and minus nothing. The conditions to salvation are repentance and faith.

We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We believe in the visible, personal, and premillennial return of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
