On February 14, 1936, Rev. John G. Mitchell called a meeting to discuss a vision, and subsequently Multnomah School of the Bible came into existence. The following October, classes began in a former mortuary. There were 49 students and a half-dozen faculty. Multnomah Biblical Seminary was founded as a related institution in 1986. In 1994, the college was renamed to Multnomah Bible College.

The original campus was located adjacent to the site of the present Lloyd Center shopping mall in northeast Portland. In 1952 the school purchased the former 17 acre (69,000 m²) campus of Oregon State School for the Blind, located at the corner of NE 86th Avenue and NE Glisan Street, the present location for the college and seminary.

The college is accredited by The Association for Biblical Higher Education and the seminary is accredited by Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.[1]
