Overview

Heritage Christian University says

Heritage Christian University provides a biblically based education, promotes spiritual growth, and prepares communicators of the gospel.

For nearly 40 years, Heritage Christian University has been preparing men and women to become effective communicators of the gospel. HCU takes seriously the command of Christ to "go unto all the world" and realizes the importance of adequate training. No matter what your goal is...preaching, mission work, becoming an elder, counseling, teaching, or simply becoming a better Bible student... you can be confident that an education at HCU will take you where you need to go.

That's because the university has a singular focus: equipping God's people for greater service in His church. HCU Bible degree programs are academically challenging, practically oriented, and evangelistically focused. At Heritage, you will learn essential life skills in general education courses, but your emphasis will always be on real world ministry.

What is Real World Ministry? Exactly what it says. It's learning to minister in the real world - taking care of the sick and poor, reaching out to widows and orphans, and saving the lost. It's following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, and it is the foundation of Heritage Christian University.

If your desire is to serve and minister in more effective ways, HCU's accredited Bible programs may be just what you've been looking for. No matter what your current situation may be, there is a program that's right for you. Take a look at what HCU can offer you!
