Following the second World War, the leadership of the United Baptist Convention of the Maritime Provinces felt the time was right to address their concern that young people who were leaving the region to train for vocational Christian ministry were not returning. To address this issue, the United Baptist Bible Training School was founded in Moncton, New Brunswick in 1949. The school began as a Bible institute and then a few years later added a residential high school program because many prospective students who wanted to attend were from rural areas where young people did not have access to a high school education. For the next two decades, students came from all over Atlantic Canada and beyond to learn in a Christian context and to live in a Christian community. Academic excellence very quickly became a hallmark of the new school, and many people gave sacrificially to help expand the facilities and the programs. By 1968, high schools were being established across rural Atlantic Canada and the school transitioned to a Christian Junior Liberal Arts College to meet the educational needs of a new era. In 1970, the name was changed to Atlantic Baptist College to reflect this new direction.
