About Us

Ark Baptist College began as a burden of Missionary Terry King.  Having worked with youth in crisis for many years, Bro. King began to see the need of a place for specific Christian education, pointed toward specialty ministry and church planting.  His burden was further challenged through conversations with his pastor, the late Dr. Dennis Carter, who challenged him that it should be a school of Baptist distinctives, firmly grounded on the Word of God.

In the fall of 2007, Ark Bible Institute opened in St. Augustine, Florida. With its first handfull of students, it was apparent that God was using the burden of Bro. King to meet a specific need.   In 2010, Ark Bible Institute became Ark Baptist College.  Ark Baptist College provides students with the opportunity to learn hands on, applying what they learn in the classroom in a real time ministry environment.  From preaching and teaching in a local church, to singing, to sharing the love of Christ with youth in an inner city neighborhood, students at the ark get practical ministry experience while learning the doctrines and teachings of the Word of God.

Ark Baptist College is affordable, and offers a flexible schedule for students to learn around their work schedule. Located in beautiful St. Augustine, FL, Ark Baptist College gives students the opportunities to follow God’s calling for their lives while enjoying the beauty of His creation, and also enjoy the history of our great area. With historic downtown St. Augustine just minutes away, our students also find many local jobs available to them, helping them grow as they pursue their lives for Jesus Christ.
