The roots of Heritage are deeply embedded in the history of two former schools, Central Baptist Bible College and Seminary (CBC & CBS) and London Baptist Bible College and London Baptist Seminary (LBBC & LBS).
CBS/BC began in 1949 in Toronto and provided undergraduate and graduate theological education until the mid-1980’s, after which time it existed solely as a seminary. CBBC & CBS served primarily the Fellowship Baptist movement in Canada.
LBS began in 1976 in London, Ontario. The school provided undergraduate and graduate theological education and served a variety of baptistic church groups. In 1981, the school’s name changed to London Baptist Bible College and London Baptist Seminary (LBBC & LBS).
LBBC & LBS and CBS amalgamated and adopted the name Heritage Baptist College and Heritage Theological Seminary. Classes at Heritage began in September 1993 in London, Toronto, and Bracebridge.
On August 8, 1995, Heritage moved to Cambridge, Ontario. We continue to provide undergraduate and graduate theological education and offer extension classes in a variety of locations.
In November of 2010, Heritage entered into a new partnership and integration with the central region of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada in order to strengthen the school’s ability to train leaders for ministry both locally and internationally. It remains the goal of Heritage to continue to serve all of the groups and individuals with whom it has had relationships with in the past.
Presently, Heritage has over 2300 alumni ministering around the world.
