About GSBC

Golden State Baptist College is an independent, fundamental Bible college.

Approximately 30 years ago, Dr. Jack Trieber began to see the need to train men and ladies of our church and nearby churches for full-time Christian service. In 1992, the Golden State Baptist Institute was established for this purpose. In May of 1995, we were able to witness the first commencement exercises of Golden State Baptist Institute. Golden State Baptist College, founded in 1996, is an outgrowth of Golden State Baptist Institute. Since the foundation of this college, God has poured out His blessing on this school.
