"I chose OCU because of its reputation as being one of the best Christian colleges in the country. The greatest experience was meeting a lot of fellow Christians and watching ourselves grow into a tight cohesive cohort, as we shared thoughts, laughs and tears, but most importantly learned so much about the word of God."

Core Values

Our community of interdependent students, faculty, and staff seeks to honor and obey Jesus Christ, who is present in Spirit and speaks in Scripture, and to advance God’s purposes in the lives of every member.

Our academic and student development programs cultivate a deep and enduring faith that affirms the authority of Scripture and embraces Christ as the authentic center of life.

Our undergraduate and adult curriculum integrates faith and learning in a scholarly environment that fosters critical and creative thinking, academic excellence, and professional competence.

Our emphasis on ministry and missions extends beyond the classroom into real-world experiences that prepare students for a lifetime of service in ministry.

Our students experience and engage the world in ways that prepare leaders to serve and transform their professions, churches, and communities.

We seek to provide an excellent academic environment for the acquisition of both knowledge and wisdom.
