We aim to assist our students in developing a biblical worldview where the principles and norms derived from the Word of God are applied to the whole of life. Spiritual values are emphasized, and while we stress academic excellence, we also value spiritual growth. Our flexible and innovative curriculum also allows students to be invested in athletics and music, complete studies abroad, and engage in top internship programs.
Our classes are always taught by faculty, not teacher’s assistants. All faculty have a shared commitment to the doctrinal statement.
We hold the Word of God as sufficient in all things, including its own interpretation. To best equip our students for their intended fields, ministry, or otherwise, we teach them how to approach the Word; through Greek and Hebrew, the context in which it was written, along with a large selection of classes ranging from biblical counseling to the book of Revelation. Our professors are not just equipped scholarly but are heavily involved in their local church and other ministries: practicing what they teach and standing as examples to each student.

All of our faculty and staff affirm our full doctrinal statement, which has remained essentially unchanged since our founding. We believe and teach:
– The inerrancy of the Bible
– The tri-unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
– The total depravity of man
– The necessity of salvation by grace alone through faith alone
– The coming earthly kingdom of Christ
