Messiah is an academic institution profoundly committed to worshipping God as a community.
Unlike many other Christian colleges, Messiah embraces students from a wide variety of Christian faith traditions. In fact, we believe that learning from each other is part of what it means to be an authentic faith community.
There's another way we're different from some other Christian colleges, and that is that every Messiah College professor and employee signs a statement of faith as an indication of her or his commitment to the mission of the College.
Our professors are not only accomplished scholars but also practicing Christians who teach their areas of expertise and serve as role models for in integrating a life of faith with intellectual pursuits.
Because they know your college years are a significant time of learning, exploration, and experience that is likely to significantly shape your identity, our faculty challenge you to apply your Christian values in ways that are academically rigorous and personally meaningful.
Some opportunities to grow in faith and fellowship at Messiah College include:
