Nebraska Christian College says

From mission flows every essential activity. Every thought, plan, activity, word and step is energized and empowered when the soul is consumed with its mission for life.

The mission of Nebraska Christian College is to glorify God through the ministry of educating people at the undergraduate level for His work. Nebraska Christian College seeks to equip people who will know the Christ revealed in the scripture and will present Him to their contemporaries.

Our desire "to know Christ and to make Him known" breathes life into every plan, course, conversation, ministry and extra-curricular activity of campus life. We seek to equip people who know the Christ revealed in the scriptures and will be able to present Him to their contemporaries.

Core values that guide this mission provide consistent framework for the administration, faculty, staff and students. These values are defined as:

  • Worship. We seek to glorify God in all we do.
  • Wisdom. We seek to impart the knowledge of God's word and God's world with humility.
  • Witness. We seek to live lives of courage, clarity, and compassion so others will come to know Christ and make Him known.
  • Work. We strive to give ourselves fully to God's work so His purposes can be accomplished in this generation.
  • Word. We believe the Bible is the revelation of God's will and our full authority for life and ministry.
