Faith-based Online University - Praying Hands

Why you should attend an online university that respects your faith

All colleges and universities are a place to learn and grow, enhance job skills, and make friends. However, at Spring Arbor University Online, we believe education should deliver something fundamentally greater. We believe it should serve as place to take the gifts with which God has blessed you and hone them into finely tuned skills.

“As a Christ-centered university, we believe that faith and learning are united together, and our students are taught to apply the knowledge they gain within our programs to leave a lasting impact on our world.” – Dr. Brent Ellis, President of Spring Arbor University.

In Matthew 5:16 we are told, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” At SAU Online, the opportunity to shine your light occurs in many ways.

First, you will be among online learners who respect your faith. Within the supportive atmosphere of our online Christian university, you can find answers to life’s tough questions from instructors and fellow students who are evaluating God’s word alongside you. In addition, learning with fellow Christians offers ample opportunities to foster disciplined habits and skills that promote godly character.

Next, your online courses will be firmly rooted in Christian perspectives, ethics and values. After all, you spend 8+ hours a day at work. It’s imperative that these hours offer you a chance to make life-enhancing impacts that honor God.

Here are some things to look for in a Christian university:

  • It makes a total commitment to Jesus Christ as the perspective for learning
  • It is committed to the development of Christian character and the living integration of faith and learning
  • It opening shares its Statement of Faith and weaves it into curriculum
  • It is committed to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and affirms the importance of learning grounded in God’s Creation and in His uniquely authoritative revelation through Scripture

In short, attending a Christian university is a great way to encounter new perspectives that will ultimately shape you into a stronger Christian in life, work and family.
