Overview

Overview

Crossroads College says

Crossroads College is a four-year, coeducational, post-secondary Christian institution.

Crossroads College is a College: It offers a general course of study in the liberal arts leading to an associate's and/or bachelor's degree. It also offers specialized instruction in vocational ministries and other professions. Its primary focus is teaching rather than research.

Crossroads College is a Bible College: It requires of all students a substantial core of biblical studies, as well as spiritual formation and Christian service experiences. Personal dedication to Christ, development of Christian lifestyle, and dedication to ministry according to one's gifts are viewed as essential. Crossroads employs God's self-revelation in history, as described in the Scriptures, as the integrating instrument for all its educational programs. A Christian worldview, grounded in the Scriptures, enables students to view life holistically, giving meaning and purpose to the knowledge and skills they gain at the college. This does not mean that only the text of the Bible is taught, but that the message of the Bible is at the core of this college's commitment.

Crossroads College is not an island apart from human experience but is involved in this world as a human institution with a divine, dynamic purpose.
