Heartland Baptist Bible College is an unaccredited Independent Fundamental Baptist Bible college in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which offers undergraduate diplomas (HBBC is not allowed by the state of Oklahoma to issue degrees.) in pastoral theology, missions, youth, Christian ministries, music education, Christian education (elementary and secondary), and secretarial science. Sam Davison, the current president of the institution, also pastors Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City.


In November 1966, the Western Baptist Bible Fellowship, composed of pastors from that region, met in Las Vegas and created the Pacific Coast Baptist Fellowship. The new association was primarily the fruition of the vision, dedication, and determination of five key southern California pastors.

Classes began in the fall of 1966 in rented facilities in Orange, California. Under the direction of Pastor Ted Hicks, one of the founders and the first President, the college grew and became an established preacher-training facility.

The school moved to Oklahoma City and was renamed Heartland Baptist Bible College for the 1998-1999 school year.

Heartland's executive vice president is Jeff Copes of Oklahoma City, and the vice president is Dave Brown of Yakima, Washington. Until his death, Kevin F. O'Brien (1955-2008) was the Heartland secretary-treasurer, a leading figure among Independent Baptists, and the pastor of Bethany Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas.


Heartland Baptist Bible College is not accredited by any recognized accreditation body, nor does it seek accreditation.


HBBC does not participate in any intercollegiate leagues, but it does offer intramural sports for students who wish to participate.
