Warner Pacific College is operated under the auspices of the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) to educate and serve people who, regardless of their denomination, desire a quality liberal arts education in a vital Christian community. Founded in 1937 in Spokane, Washington, Warner was incorporated as Pacific Bible College and prepared church leaders during its early years. A desire for a more central location in the Pacific Northwest led to a move to Portland in 1940. In 1959, the name was changed to Warner Pacific College in honor of one of the early founders of the church, as well as to reflect its growing liberal arts emphasis. Accreditation by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges followed in 1961. The college is approved by the State of Oregon for the training of teachers in identified subject areas.
