Faith Evangelical College & Seminary says

Faith Evangelical College & Seminary exists to glorify God by equipping Christian leaders with a biblical, theological, and practical education empowering them to apply and proclaim the inerrant Word of God for worldwide Christian service.

Our mission is pursued through the development of a community of teachers and students who seek to strengthen their Christian beliefs by exegeting and interpreting Scripture, who uphold the form of doctrine expressed in the historic creeds and confessions of orthodox Christianity, and who labor together in fellowship to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The school seeks to serve the church and society by educating, training, and nurturing students toward spiritual maturity and readiness to serve God effectively in both the church and the world. The institution expects faculty, staff, and students to model Christian values such as faithfulness, humility, and service. We are dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, and writing and expect our students to live and study "as unto the Lord."

To this end, the institution provides instructors and facilities for undergraduate and graduate Christian education. The institution also grants degrees required for the church's multiplicity of ministries, and provides academic opportunities in a life setting that encourages students to live under the guidance of God's Word for God's glory.

The institution is an interdenominational, nonprofit, religious, and educational institution that respects the right of students to affiliate with the evangelical denomination or synod of their choice.
