The mission of Rosedale Bible College is to provide an evangelical junior Bible college education in the Anabaptist/Mennonite tradition that equips students to grow spiritually and academically and to serve effectively in the church and society.
The college is committed to academic excellence as well as to nurturing a campus atmosphere that encourages concentration on spiritual growth and discipline.
Programs of Study
An Associate Degree in Biblical Studies (two years) is the degree program offered by RBC. Students may choose between nine different concentrations within the degree curriculum.
For students staying only one year, the college offers a Certificate in Biblical Studies which shares many core requirements with the associate's degree. In addition, a special three-week wilderness training experience, Akwachink Leadership School, is offered each fall in association with Living Hope Native Ministries.
RBC is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education. ABHE is recognized as a national accrediting agency by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), and the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation (CORPA). It is also listed by the United States Department of Education as a recognized agency for biblical higher education. Internationally, ABHE is recognized by the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education. Rosedale is also authorized by the Ohio Board of Regents (the state's educational oversight body) to grant the associate degree in biblical studies.
