Rosedale Bible College (RBC) is an evangelical Anabaptist junior Bible college located in Rosedale in central Ohio. RBC offers associate degrees and one-year certificates in Biblical studies, with nine areas of concentration. The college is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education, and is owned by the Conservative Mennonite Conference, a coalition of roughly 120 widely scattered churches within the Mennonite family of faith, and united by a conservative evangelical and Anabaptist theology.

RBC began in 1952 near the town of Berlin, Ohio, as a six-week Bible school that met in a local Mennonite church. The school was founded to equip students to grow spiritually and academically to serve effectively in the church and society. In 1964 the college moved to its present campus and became known as Rosedale Bible Institute. The ensuing years saw growth in both course offerings and length of the school year. In conjunction with accreditation and degree granting privileges recognized by the Ohio Board of Regents, the institution changed its name in 2001 to Rosedale Bible College.

Currently the college serves approximately 125 students annually, a large majority of them coming from Mennonite congregations. The ratio of men to women is generally 50/50. The institution has roughly 7,000 alumni, with a relatively large number serving the church as missionaries, pastors, and ministry workers throughout the world. A majority of RBC students transfer to four-year institutions to further their education.
