Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries

The Biblical Studies and Christian Ministries Department fosters a community where students and professors prepare to engage our cultural contexts with a vibrant and effective understanding of the scriptures, construct a coherent biblical worldview, grapple with questions that address faith and life, and serve as responsible citizens of the body of Christ. The department desires to model:

  1. Conviction that scripture, God’s authoritative revelation,
    is faithful and trustworthy
  2. Recognition of our own need for God’s presence by the indwelling Word and the Holy Spirit
  3. Humble and enthusiastic study of scripture in pursuit of truth, justice, and mercy
  4. Courage to represent the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a
    complex world
