Clarity Christian College’s History

In the tradition and values of our forerunner, Florida Bible College (FBC), Clarity Christian College continues in the tradition and values of Florida Bible College (FBC). From its beginning in 1962, FBC had a unique vision and mission that was on the cutting edge of a movement to follow 2 Timothy 2:2, fulfilling the Great Commission. Clarity College continues this effort to develop believers in Jesus Christ into fully-committed, biblically grace-oriented, knowledgeable, articulate, balanced, evangelistic disciples. These disciples are then faithful, competent, and effective as they do the things God created for them to do.

Part of what made it unique was its willingness to think outside the box and to embrace unconventional methods that were controversial in the eyes of the more staid, traditional church of its day. It moved north to a new home in the former Hollywood Beach Hotel in 1971, where it grew to become the largest non-denominational Bible college in the world. In the 1980s it again relocated, this time to the Poinciana development near the central Florida town of Kissimmee, before finally moving back to south Florida before operations were suspended in the late 1990s.

The Trustees sought not to recreate the 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s. They adopted and executed a strategic plan to support their vision for a Biblically grace-oriented, culturally-relevant, mission-driven school. With the leadership of President Dr. Stan Ponz f classes in the new era began on August 29, 2016.

In 2022 the Trustees of Florida Bible College voted to change the name of the college to Clarity Christian College.  Clarity Christian College stands on the legacy of a clear Gospel, that salvation is by faith alone, in Christ alone.
