Indiana Bible College was founded in 1981 by Pastor Dennis Croucher and the Apostolic Pentecostal Tabernacle, Seymour, Indiana. After seven miraculous years in Seymour, President Croucher and the Board of Regents concluded that the future development of the college would be enhanced by relocation to Indianapolis, Indiana.
In 1988 Pastor Paul Mooney and Calvary Tabernacle in Indianapolis accepted the challenge of sponsoring Indiana Bible College and began the process of relocating IBC. The transition necessitated the suspending of classes for one year until facilities could be acquired.
Watch the Miracle of IBC.
In the summer of 1989, through the vision and faith of the saints of Calvary Tabernacle, Indiana Bible College purchased the former University Heights Hospital. In a few short weeks of intense and exhausting work, the congregation of Calvary Tabernacle transformed the complex into a functioning Bible college campus. On September 11, 1989 IBC at Indianapolis opened with a student body of forty-four students.
In 1999 due to the growth of the college and the need for additional dormitory space the college acquired an apartment complex of 35 apartments across the street from IBC for a men's dormitory. In 2003 eight and a half acres of land was purchased adjacent to the apartment complex for future growth and development.
