Nebraska Christian College is a Christian baccalaureate college in Papillion, Nebraska. Nebraska Christian College claims to offer a Bible-based education to prepare people for service and ministry.

History

In October 1944, fifteen people met in Wymore, Nebraska to discuss establishing a Bible college for northeastern Nebraska. Norfolk, Nebraska was chosen as the site in order to leverage the existing Norfolk Junior College for general education classes. The goal was to teach and train young people to serve Christian churches.

In August 2006, Nebraska Christian College students began attending their first classes on the new Omaha campus. Nebraska Christian College raised money over several years to move the campus to the Omaha metro and this goal has been accomplished.

It is a member of the Association for Biblical Higher Education.

In 2016 the college completed a merger with Hope International University that gave students access to a plethora of online courses as well as additional degree options. The merger was led by Hope International University president John Derry.
