Welcome to Ohio Central Bible College!

This institution is not certified by the department of higher education or the state of Ohio and it does not racially discriminate in any of its policies or programs. Ohio Central Bible College is allowed by Section 1713.02 (E) of the Ohio Revised Code to offer postsecondary courses in religion leading to a Diploma in Bible Studies, other religion courses as electives, and religion seminars. OCBC courses and seminars are Christ-centered (see John 14:6).

All adults, age 18 and over, with a high school diploma or GED are welcome to enroll in our courses, seminars, and Independent Study Program. Instruction is offered during Winter Term, Spring Semester, Summer Term, and Fall Semester. A benefit concert takes place during the spring. Our highly qualified instructors make Christianity and the Holy Bible interesting, exciting, and enjoyable. The traditional classroom atmosphere creates a place where students can fellowship with other Christians. We encourage all individuals to learn more about the life and teachings of Christ in the four Gospels and then follow Him during their life journeys.

Higher Education in Morrow County

Hesper Mount Seminary (Society of Friends, 1843-1881) was situated near the Quaker settlement in Peru Township. Iberia College (Free Presbyterian, 1854-1867) and Ohio Central College (United Presbyterian, 1867-1875; Christian and nonsectarian, 1875-1887) were both located in Iberia, Washington Township. After 122 years, higher education was revived in Morrow County with the founding of Ohio Central Bible College (Christian and independent) at Iberia in July 2009. OCBC was created for the people of Morrow County and the Columbus region. All are welcome to attend 
Ohio Central Bible College. 


   "It would be great to have you enroll as a student at Ohio Central
    Bible College! We were established in July 2009. OCBC is Christian,
    traditional, and independent. Our curriculum is Christ-centered (see
    The Gospel According to Saint John 14:6; KJV). Individuals with a
    high school diploma or GED are welcome to enroll. All of our faculty 
    at OCBC have a master's degree or higher and we are a commuter
    campus without a residency requirement. Our students love the
    enjoyment of learning and having fellowship with other Christians in
    class. Seminars are held at the Iberia Presbyterian Church and at 
    the Mt. Gilead Public Library Annex. Thank you."                                    President Phillips
