Emmanuel is a Christ-centered liberal arts college that strives to prepare students to become Christlike disciples who integrate faith, learning & living for effective careers, scholarship and service. Degrees are offered at the associate and bachelor levels, and the student/faculty ratio is 15:1.
Emmanuel College is dedicated to intellectual, physical and spiritual growth within the context of a liberal arts education and an environment of Christian concern. We believe God is the personal Creator and Ruler of all time, space and matter, and a true understanding of all things must involve knowledge of His revealed purposes. We further believe the fullest information about God comes from the person of Jesus Christ and the relation of His redemptive works as recorded in the Holy Bible through inspiration of the Holy Spirit. All creation derives value and significance from God revealed in Jesus Christ. Christians are able to live as redeemed, regenerated and cleansed members of society through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
We believe education based on these principles 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 a college experience in a Christian environment will enable students to develop lifelong spiritual and social values. We believe all truth is Gods truth, and opportunities should be provided students to integrate faith and learning and synthesize their understanding of Gods purpose in Christ with ones view of the worth of persons and worth of the scientific method in improving life.
