• Kuyper College Overview

    Kuyper College is a Christian college focused on training students to make a difference. Our desire is to develop a caring community of Christian learning that will challenge and support students as they grow in all areas of life.

    Kuyper College equips students with a biblical, Reformed worldview to serve effectively Christ's church and His world.

    What We Believe

    We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and must guide our teaching, philosophy, lifestyle and response to our ministry or professional calling. A biblical, Reformed theological perspective shapes all that we do-reinforcing Christ's lordship over all things, affirming that all people are made in the image of God, and equipping us with the Holy Spirit to join Christ in His mission to restore and transform creations, serving all peoples and cultures.

    Robust Bible and Theology Curriculum
    Kuyper College places a high value on helping students to be firmly rooted in Scripture and grounded with an understanding of what the Christian church has always taught and believed. For that reason the Bible and theology curriculum remains central as we equip graduates to serve Christ's church and His world. Each degree is built upon a general education cores that includes 21 Bible and theology credits. Kuyper is one of the few Christian colleges in the United States providing such an extensive foundation in the study of Bible and theology.
