Heritage Christian University exists to help Christians answer God’s call to ministry. We offer a balanced, comprehensive, practical education that impacts the whole person. We aim to:

  • Challenge students academically.
  • Enhance their passion for ministry.
  • Strengthen their skills for service.

All Heritage Christian University faculty accept the following statements as literally true: God exists and by His love, mercy, and grace saves all who believe, love, and obey Him; the Bible is God’s Word; Jesus Christ is the Son of God; the church is the body of Christ and “the pillar and bulwark of the truth;” the mission of the church is to glorify God as it evangelizes the world.
