Equal Opportunity

Emmanuel College is an academic community dedicated to intellectual, physical, and spiritual growth within the context of a liberal arts education and an environment of Christian concern. We believe that God is the personal Creator and Ruler of all time, space, and matter and that a true understanding of all things must involve a knowledge of His revealed purposes. We further believe that the fullest information concerning God comes from the person of Jesus Christ and the relation of His redemptive works as recorded in the Holy Bible through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. All creation derives value and significance from God revealed in Jesus Christ. Christian men are able to live as redeemed, regenerated, and cleansed members of society through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that education based upon these principle is the best possible method of preparing students for and involving them in lasting service to God and others-service noted for integrity, intelligence, and devotion. We further believe that a college experience in a Christian environment will enable students to develop lifelong spiritual and social values. We believe that all truth is God's truth and that opportunities should be provided students to integrate faith and learning, to synthesize their understanding of God's purpose in Christ with one's view of the worth of persons as well as the worth of the scientific method in improving life.
