Corban College has its roots in Phoenix, Arizona, where in 1935 it began as a Bible Institute. After relocating to California in 1946 it became known as Western Baptist Bible College where it operated until moving to Oregon in 1969. In 2005 the name of the college was changed to Corban College in order to enhance our ability to reach out to all evangelical churches and at the same time to present our Baptist heritage in a positive manner. The name, a biblical word meaning "a gift dedicated to God," and motto, "Dedicating Heart and Mind to God," reflect the mission of the college.
