Core Values

At St. Louis Christian College, we are Educating Christians. In order to do so, we have adopted a set of values that guide everything we do. As an institution of Christian higher education, St. Louis Christian College embraces and promotes:

Bible Knowledge

St. Louis Christian College is a Bible college where every baccalaureate graduate pursues a major in biblical and theological studies. The Bible’s message informs our understanding of the purpose and predicament of human life, the history of the world, the nature and mission of the Church, and the nature and goal of ministry.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
II Timothy 3:16-17

Christian Character

St. Louis Christian College believes that servants of Christ must live by the example and teaching of Christ.    We believe that the classical virtues of wisdom, courage, self-control, justice, faith, hope, and love are exemplified by the life of Christ. He, in perfect humility, taught us first to love God and then to love our neighbors as ourselves.  The college's Code of Student Conduct reflects and encourages these values as do our hiring practices and academic programs.

I gave you an example, that you also should do as I did to you.
John 13:15

Ministry Skills

Because our graduates are called to be servant leaders in their chosen fields of ministry, they possess the skills to relate to people of many backgrounds, the heart to serve them in their brokenness, and the judgment to effectively apply the Scriptures to life's diverse situations. Students are challenged and helped to identify and develop their spiritual gifts and are placed in settings to practice those gifts skillfully.

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
I Peter 4:10-11

Christian Worldview

A broad base of academic knowledge is fundamental to becoming an educated person who effectively reasons and interacts in society. At the center of a Christian view of life and the world is the proposition that humans and the universe in which they live were created by the God who has revealed Himself in the Scriptures. God is the source of all truth, not just religious truth; and the Bible provides the basis for the ordering of all knowledge. The curriculum at St. Louis Christian College integrates thought and life across a broad academic range and fosters in students a lifelong appreciation for the independent value of knowing.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.
Proverbs 1:7

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Luke 2:52

Christian Community

St. Louis Christian College is a diverse community of believers united by Christ in mission and purpose. The intimacy of our campus provides a unique atmosphere for developing lifelong relationships. However, our community extends beyond the boundaries of our campus and into the city in which we live, the church that we serve, and the world we want to reach.

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Acts 2:42-47
