On behalf of Fruitland Baptist Bible College, we would like to invite you to an event in March that we are calling VISION 2020. This generation of middle to high school students are starving more than ever to know who they were created to be. In Colossians 1:16, we find that we were created for Christ, through Christ, and in Christ. This event will be held to introduce students to the truth of who they were created to be in Jesus Christ.
