Who are we at Legacy Bible College

Legacy Bible College is an interdenominational, private Christian Bible college with a Baptist heritage. We are located at 6806 Whitesburg Dr. S Huntsville, AL 35802.  We are an affiliate of the Association for Biblical Higher Education.Bldg6-web

Our mission is to “equip students to impact their communities for Christ”.  Our vision is to be a model and catalyst for Christian leadership and to express both our character and quality through the affordability and accessibility of the education that we offer.

Legacy believes that all areas of life must be viewed through the prism of a Christian worldview. We teach from a solid biblical foundation, and a primary teaching objective is for our students to form an integrated worldview in which all areas of life and learning are subordinated to the Lordship of Christ.

James W. Sire defines a worldview as “A commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true, or entirely false) which we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic construction of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being.”

Dr. Lee Hudson started the “Heritage Bible Institute” in 1979 with only 19 students pursuing a certificate of Bible!  We have experienced a few identity changes with becoming “Heritage Bible College” in 1981 and incorporating the “Whitesburg Bible Institute” under the care of Dr. Jimmy Jackson, current pastor of Whitesburg Baptist Church.  We recently renamed ourselves “Legacy Bible College” in order to honor the legacies of the visionary men and women who built our school into what it is today.
