New England Bible College is a small four-year coeducational Bible college in South Portland, Maine. There are on average 50 to 60 enrolled students each semester.[1]

History[edit]

The Glen Cove Bible School was founded in 1959 as an affiliate of Christian Schools, Inc. It was located in Glen Cove, Rockland, Maine. The GCBC closed in 1979 due to the insolvency of Christian Schools Inc. but reopened as the New England Bible College in 1980 in Portland. A year later, it moved to larger facilities at the First Baptist Church of South Portland. Rev. Richard Francis became the college's president in 2007.
