New England Bible College began in 1980, after the Glen Cove Bible College (Rockland, Me.) closed and relocated to Portland, followed by South Portland. The roots of the College are primarily Conservative Baptist, though a private independent nonprofit school. In 2015, New England Bible College merged with Grace Evangelical College and Seminary (of Bangor, Me.).

[quoted from the above Press Herald article:
"'The Northeast is a very hard area; its' not too common to see even half of Portland in church on Sunday,' student Josh Otte said. 'It's really a challenge for me in particular; as a student I really believe if the church in Maine is going to be a witness, it starts with the individual.'"
