Who We Are

Our Mission

The mission of Covenant College is to explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things. We educate Christians to engage culture and cultures, to examine and unfold creation, and to pursue biblical justice and mercy in community. With the student-faculty relationship and strong teaching and scholarship at the foundation, our Christ-centered community seeks to help students mature in three primary areas:

  • Identity in Christ
  • Biblical frame of reference
  • Service that is Christ-like

We offer the world biblically grounded men and women equipped to live out extraordinary callings in ordinary places.

 

Formal Mission Statement

We challenge one another to explore and express Christ's preeminence in all things.

 

Our Core Beliefs

  • Confession: We affirm our Reformed historic roots.
  • Calling: We value our specific calling for teaching, mentoring, and learning, and for joyfully celebrating and stewarding the gifts and callings of our students.
  • Creation & Culture: We affirm the value of God's creation and its development in and through human cultural forms.
  • Church: We embrace the communities of faith in which we do our work and will serve the church through our academic mission.
  • Community: We value God's covenant faithfulness to us and his calling on us to be faithful to him and to one another in a primarily residential community.

“As a liberal arts institution, Covenant is instructing every part of my mind. There are quite a few core courses that are required, and balancing those courses with a major and two minors can be challenging. But all those requirements are preparing me to be an educated, thoughtful member of society who is knowledgeable on matters of faith and culture. I’m learning what it means to truly love others and give every area of my life completely to my King.”
