The Foundation of a Covenant Education
A Covenant College education has a sure foundation. Our beliefs, philosophy, and curriculum are rooted in the infallible, eternal, and unchanging Word of God. Our founders had confidence in the Scriptures' truth and promises, and on behalf of their own children and generations to come, envisioned a learning community where students would explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all creation and all of life.
A Covenant Community
We hold our students in high regard because of the commitment God has to them and their families. He consistently refers to his people as a "treasured possession" as he promises that he "will be their God, and they will be my people." It is this relationship that shapes our life and study together at Covenant, and gives us confidence that this investment has eternal value and priceless outcomes.
The College faculty and staff assume this weighty and wonderful responsibility in both teaching and relationships. Coursework across the disciplines helps our students come to understand better the gracious investment God has first made in them--designing each student with specific gifts, saving them from sin and death to eternal life, and calling them to particular roles of service and responsibilities they must assume in his kingdom.
It is to this end that we seek to discover his good gifts in creation and in culture, and to redeem and nurture those gifts for the sake of his glory in the church and in society.
