Be where Jesus was born; walk where he walked as he fulfilled his Father’s will on earth. Now imagine Moses and his people as they listen to God and journey to the Holy Land.

Dr. Ralph "Yankee" Arnold is seen presenting the
truth of the gospel in a new and exciting way.

Watch this FOUR minute video on "ETERNAL SECURITY"


It is designed to hold the attention of the lost person.
It's new, different, and very powerful. Read the comments that has already been posted on the site.

I have been accused of preaching an "easy believe-ism". It is a badge of honor that I wear proudly. I have never met a saved person who has done more than just believe to be saved. If anyone must do more than believe (which is trusting what Christ did), it would require works (which is trusting what man can do). To tell a lost person to turn from sins to be saved is to tell them to stop being bad. To tell a lost person to commit their life to Christ in service in order to be saved is to tell them they must start being good. This is a message that is hard to explain and impossible for a lost person to perform.


The good news of the Gospel is that salvation is FREE and by faith alone. This is easy even for a child to understand. When you add one work to a free gift it opens a whole can of worms. That is what happens when you make the Gospel HARD to understand. What right (preachers included) does anyone have to add works to the Gospel? When we make the Gospel clear or easy to understand, shouldn't it be easy for a person to believe? What would be our purpose in making it HARD TO BELIEVE?

Remember, believing on Christ is not a commitment to serve but a decision to trust.

BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED.

WHAT DOES REVELATION 12 REALLY TEACH?

Saturday, September 23, 2017


SEE WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE FOR US IN TAMPA
























A great promise in the Bible is “…and it came to pass”. Storm come and storms
go, but oh the devastation it leaves behind. We praise the Lord for sparing our church and our home that was in the flood zone. No water damage, no power outage, no personal injuries to any of our people, and no wind damage except for a few fence panelings.

Betty, celebrated her 75th birthday in Americus, Ga, with our daughter, Trina, because of Irma. Yes, the picture to the left was taken about 3 years ago, but after the last two weeks we looked like that rooster. You understand, right?


Allyson Adkins is one of our newest students at Florida Bible College of Tampa. She was honored to sing the National Anthem at one of the National Baseball teams (The Rays) recently. I believe you would enjoy her singing and know that we are very proud of her dedication to the Lord. CLICK HERE -1:08 minutes long 
I enjoy sharing my radio broadcasts with some of our new students at FBC. I get a chance to learn more about them, while they give testimonies about their salvation, families, and desires to serve the Lord. The last two weeks, while facing the hurricane, was quite an adventure for students and staff.

We praise the Lord that our entire on-campus teaching faculty is still with the college as we begin our fifth year. This gives to us great stability with our students. It’s an honor to serve with other godly men and women in the cause of Christ. 
I just had to show you my Daniel/Revelation class. Hey, these young men and women could help change the world. The Lord has also blessed us with many students taking night classes. We also have students taking online classes that are not pictured. Would you pray for each of them?
 HOW TO BLESS AND TO BE BLESSED

 May I introduce you to the Florida Bible College Scholarship Funds?
The Dr. Hank Lindstrom Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded towards the cost of a full-time student, who has demonstrated a zeal for sharing the gospel and bearing much fruit. When a student has shown that they are sure God wants them to prepare for a life of service at Florida Bible College, some assistance from the Dr. Hank Lindstrom Scholarship Fund may be applied to their account.
The Betty Arnold Scholarship Fund
I can assure you, that not only is a good woman hard to find, that it is very difficult to find a good woman who knows and loves the Lord enough to submit to her husband’s leadership in the ministry. They need to know God’s word to enable them to know how to love the Lord, love their husband, and love their children. We greatly desire to help as many young ladies as possible who desire God’s best, but may need some financial assistance.

President's Scholarship


This needs-based scholarship is awarded at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee of Florida Bible College at such times as unforeseen hardships might otherwise interrupt a full-time student's college career.
We want to thank those who have donated to the scholarship fund of their choice. We need others to come along side and help. We have done what we could with what we have. We hope that you have appreciated our commitment.
Florida Bible College of Tampa is recognized by the federal government as a non-profit, charitable organization (under section 501(C)(3)), and donations to Florida Bible College of Tampa will be acknowledged with a receipt from the organization.

FLORIDA BIBLE COLLEGE UPDATE FOR 2017

FLORIDA BIBLE COLLEGE UPDATE 2017 

FALL SEMESTER IS UNDERWAY

President’s Reception
“FBC IS ON THE GROW”
Below are three of our ten new students for the fall semester. Each one enjoyed their opportunity to give their testimony over my live radio broadcast last Friday. They shared how they came to know the Lord and why they chose Florida Bible College. Anna Sanchez is from San Antonio, Texas, Allyson Adkins from Tampa, and Connor Proffitt from Arizona.

Allyson will have the honor to sing the National Anthem before the Ray’s Major League baseball game on September 5th.
Our women work hard representing the college. They keep hubbies teaching, plan the parties and teach the young ladies how to be godly women. Cindy Gilbert, Kay Myers, and Betty Arnold are three great ladies.
PERSONAL LETTER FROM AIDA SANCHEZ
1977 was such a life changing time in mine and my family’s life! The Lord brought a God fearing man by the name of Pastor Lee Patton into our home. He played such a tremendous part in bringing my family into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We were so impressed with his sincere love and caring heart he had for us and anyone for that matter who needed Jesus! He is the Founder of Faith Bible church in San Antonio, Texas.  As time passed we attended Faith bible Church and became involved and grew spiritually.  Pastor Lee Patton and his Amazing wife, Irene, were greatly used of God to influence many individuals. The youth ministry (referred to as “Youth Ranch”) was the area that the Lord used in my life at the time. Later, Lee Patton introduced many of us high school students to a gentleman named Ralph “Yankee” Arnold, a close friend, who also attended Florida Bible College. “Yankee” at the time had a church, Christian School and college in Arvada, Colorado. In time, just watching and being a part of the wonderful work of God, I saw how He brought the youth from Lee Patton’s church and Yankee’s church together, through “Winter Camps“ in Colorado. These camps led me and several others to attend Colorado Bible College! This is where it all began for me and many others who attended. Little did we know of the amazing Journey that was about to begin!
Attending Colorado Bible College was one of the best decisions I ever made after trusting Christ as my Savior! I was only 18 years old and fresh out of high school. My parents were both believers and supported me fully in making this decision. The lessons I learned were priceless!  Pastor Ralph Arnold who was the President of the college and his amazing faculty played such a major role in my life. From the classes I attended, such as Personal Evangelism, Bible Doctrines, and Prophecy, working on the bus routes and in youth ministries, I gained strong godly character, self-discipline and dying to my own wants in order to see God be glorified.
Now 37 years later ,my daughter Anna (who is also 18), is taking that big step herself with the same excitement and vision In attending  Florida Bible College in Tampa, Florida from her home in San Antonio, Texas. I am so grateful to the Lord for her desire to grow spiritually. She will be taking the same classes I took and involved in the similar ministries I was in! I am so looking forward to encouraging her and walking with her through this new journey that I believe will produce GREAT rewards!  My prayer for her is in Colossians 1:9-14.
May the Lord continue to use Florida Bible College in Tampa to build strong disciples who are rock solid in biblical foundations and boldness in sharing the simplicity of the Gospel to a lost and dying world! 
The Lord Richly Bless you Pastor Ralph Arnold as you have blessed my family and I Know many others all around the world!
Sincerely,
Aida Sanchez

I would love to know that you are praying for us.

Appreciation letter from Dr. Ron Seecharan

August 19,2O17

Dear Dr. Yankee Arnold,

Greetings to you, your wife, Betty, and all the saints at Calvary Community Church, in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Just a few lines to let you know how much we appreciate your prayers and support to Solid Rock International Ministries and Solid Rock Theological Seminary in India. Your support helps us in the great work of training men for the ministry.

So far, ln India, we have had 27 graduating classes with 603 graduates who are now serving the Lord throughout India, Burma and Nepal. These men are clear on the gospel and they are impacting thousands weekly with a clear gospel.

ln our extension seminaries in Trinidad, West Indies, Guyana, South America and St. Lucia in the Caribbean, we have had 130 who have earned their degrees in Theology and are serving the Lord there.

We remember when you and your wife, Betty, and Rev. Bob Gilbert visited us at our resident seminary in India in 2015 for our 25th commencement service. What a joy on the face of your wife, Betty, as she shared the gospel to hundreds of young boys and girls in the Sunday school after you preached the Word. We also remember Brother Bob and the wonderful ordination prayer he gave at our 25th graduation service as we ordained 8 of our graduates who were going full time into ministry.

Dr. Ron Seecharan, Bob Gilbert, Betty and Yankee Arnold

Dr. Yankee, I have known you for over 50 years when we were students at the old FBC campus at Grove Community in Miami, Florida. I thank the Lord for you and your faithfulness to Him, your clarity on the gospel and the fundamentals of the faith. You have lived by the book I can't wait to see what our spiritual family tree will be like at the judgment seat of Christ. (II Cor. 5:10)

I thank the Lord that you are now the president of Florida Bible College in Tampa. I also thank the Lord for the wonderful faculty that he has given to you to train and equip young men and women for full time gospel ministry. I highly recommend FBC and pray that many new students will enroll and attend in your new academic year. My wife Shireen and I look forward to visiting with you at a later date and sharing what God is doing in our ministry.
Yours for making Christ known

Dr. Ron R.Seecharan
Eph. 3:20

Immediately following the Sunday evening service on August 27th, our President's Reception will be a great time of meeting people and renewing old friendships.  Food is a part of it - all are expected to attend.  (Church attire).

Last week, Betty and I were having breakfast at Nickie's Restaurant, (few blocks from Calvary Community Church in Tampa) when Florida Governor, Rick Scott came in with a number of his friends. He came over to my table and we chatted very briefly. He asked about our church so I presented him with our gospel clear Heaven Tract. He was very kind and polite. He is truly a great governor doing a wonderful job for our state. Great way to start the day. Pray for our leaders, and especially President Donald Trump. The only thing he did wrong to the Democrats, the Lefties,  and the entrenched RINO Republicans was to win the election. He's guilty. That is his crime for which there is no forgiveness. Pray for him.
