Formerly known as "Fellowship Baptist Academy", the institution was founded by Baptist lay ministers, leaders and missionaries from the Visayan Fellowship of Fundamental Baptist Churches. It is a sectarian, non-stock and non-profit educational institution. Aside from student fees, it exists mainly upon benevolent donations from Fundamental Baptist churches organization, individual Christians and later from the alumni and its organization.
It opened in 1954 with an enrollment of 212 students. It faithfully carried out its mission. In 1957, Fellowship Baptist Academy was given government recognition. In June 1982, the school operated a post-secondary course in Midwifery. The following year, it opened two degree courses which are Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Bachelor of Arts. Upon conferring the government recognition to these two courses, DECS acted favorably in school year 1989-1990 on the change of the status of the school from "Academy" to "College".
