Trinity College is an evangelical interdenominational Bible college (established 1932) located in New Port Richey in Pasco County, Florida. It is a private college.

The institution was founded as Florida Bible Institute in Temple Terrace by Dr. William T. Watson, a fundamentalist tent preacher from North Carolina and pastor of a large Christian and Missionary Alliance church in St. Petersburg. The name was changed to Trinity College of Florida in 1947.

An important characteristic of the College has always been its distinctly interdenominational nature. At Trinity students from a wide variety of church backgrounds have the opportunity to study various interpretations of the Bible in an atmosphere of respect. In a world where interdenominational cooperation among evangelicals is increasingly vital, Trinity College of Florida believes that this type of education best serves its students as they prepare to live and serve more effectively.

The College's most famous alumnus is Billy Graham, who graduated from the College in 1940 and became one of the great evangelists in the history of the church. Jimmy G. Tharpe (1930–2008), founder of Louisiana Baptist University in Shreveport, Louisiana, received bachelor of arts and Master of Arts degrees from Trinity in the 1950s.
