"Open Bible College was established in 1977 by Dr. Dave Reese. Although previously both a resident and correspondence school, Open Bible Collge studies are presently conducted via internet and mail. At Open Bible College, we are focused on training people to study God's Word according to II Timothy 2:15:

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth.

Open Bible College serves students worldwide--from brand new Christian to ministry workers to pastors. The coursework is overflowing with Bible-believing, rightly-dividing, dispensational truths--scriptural meat for hungry students of God's Word."

OBCI has now (2011) three resident schools in the Philippines: Open Bible College Panay (OBCP), Oton, Iloilo; Open Bible College Mindanao (OBCM), Surallah, South Cotatabato; and Open Bible College Palawan (OBCPa), Puerto Princessa City. It has also some "satellite" schools, one of which is OBCI Iloilo City Extension School. Night and correspondence classes were also made available to those who desire Biblical training for God's unique calling in their lives.


OPEN BIBLE COLLEGE PANAY (OBCP) Open Bible College International (OBCI) in Oton, Iloilo is a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church and Ends of the Earth Mission. It exists for the purpose of training men and women for Christian service. Our emphasis is on Bible preparation that leads to the evangelization of the lost in remote and neglected areas and the establishment of local, independent Baptist churches. This Bible school ministry of Calvary Baptist Church was founded in Oton, Iloilo, Philippines by Missionary James Joines in 1981.  It was formerly known as "International Baptist Theological College" (IBTC) and "Baptist International Theological College" (BITC), and later became "Open Bible College International" (OBCI) in 1996 under Dr. Dave Reese. The name, Open Bible College Panay, is used when distinguishing it from other OBCI resident schools in the Philippines. When Calvary Baptist Church started an outreach work in Iloilo City, the Open Bible College Iloilo City Extension School also began night classes. Currently we have graduates all over the Philippines who pastor churches and teach Bible colleges and Christian schools in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.  Some of our OBCP graduates are in Cambodia, Saudi Arabia, and other parts of the world as "full-time" or "tentmaking" missionaries. The Bible School has maintained its strong stand on the authority, inspiration, and preservation of the King James Bible as God's pure and infallible Word.  It believes that it is not by adding to or subtracting from, but rather by "rightly dividing the word of truth" that the Word of God may be properly understood and taught, preached and practiced.
OBCP offers several Degree Programs and Classes. To learn more about OBCI and updates concerning new materials and  schedule of activities, feel free to  contact us. Visit our Online Classroom.
