Southern Baptist College is a Christian institution which was originally incorporated in 1951 under the name of the United Christian College (UCC). The College began the operation in 1952 with an enrolment of 200 students. Reverend Perfecto Yasay was the first Chairman of the Board of Directors and Mr. Roberto Betia served as the Director of the school. A complete academic high school curriculum, as well as subjects in the Liberal Arts and Education, were offered in the first year.
The school was first registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a stock corporation. Today, the institution functions as a non-profit college under the directives established by the Board of Trustees in keeping with the regulations of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and Department of Education (DepEd).
Mlang Baptist Church assumed responsibility for operating the college during the transition from stock to nonstock status. Most of the supporters and sponsors of the college were members of this church. these members later sought affiliation with the Philippine Mission of the Southern Baptist Convention in regard to help in operating the college. Mr. Loreto Juson and Reverend John E. Jackson were instrumental in working out a relationship between the Mission and Southern Baptist College, whereby the mission agreed to extend limited aid in the form of capital grants and personnel. The Board of Trustees voted to change the name of the institution from United Christian College to Southern Baptist College in 1956.
The degree Associate in Arts was first awarded in 1959 and Bachelor of Arts as well as Bachelor of Science in Education degrees were first granted in 1961. In 1963-1964 school permission was obtained to offer Third Year courses in Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education program as well as courses for Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce. The College awarded its First Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree in 1965.
