Northeastern Bible College was founded by Charles W. Anderson and first opened in September, 1950, as Brookdale Bible School, at the Brookdale Baptist Church in Bloomfield, New Jersey. The college relocated to a campus in Essex Fells in the fall of 1952. The name was changed in 1964 to Northeastern Collegiate Bible Institute, and finally in 1973 to Northeastern Bible College.

Northeastern won the 1st official NCCAA D-I Soccer Championship in the Fall 1973 and in the spring of 1974, was granted full accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The school closed in 1990 due to financial difficulties and low enrollment. The King's College, originally located in Briarcliff Manor, NY, closed its doors in 1994 because of financial difficulties, but was revived in 1998, and in 1999, acquired Northeastern Bible College and proceeded to lease two floors in the Empire State Building where it continued until 2012 when the College relocated to Lower Manhattan, near Wall Street. There are about 2,000 alumni from Northeastern Bible College, 70% of whom are engaged in full-time Christian service.
