For nearly 130 years, Cedarville has been dedicated to providing an education consistent with biblical truth. That dedication has been rooted in a desire to glorify God, a desire permeated throughout the trustees, administration, faculty, staff, students, and friends of Cedarville. As the University faces a culture increasingly hostile to biblical authority and ultimate truth, we are taking a stand—a stand rooted in the truth of the Word of God, and a stand which is consistent with the historic American ideal of religious freedom.
We remain steadfast in our commitment that the “fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”(Prov. 1:7) We remain committed to grounding our students in the Word through a solid Bible minor emphasizing biblical theology. We remain dedicated to discipling and mentoring the next generation of believers for Gospel impact in their communities, cultures, and marketplaces through their ministry in local churches. Altogether, we seek to remain faithful to the stewardship entrusted to us, in glorifying God by fulfilling His teaching and by producing well-educated graduates who are equipped to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
To do so, we will reinvigorate our distinctiveness by strengthening our core. Daily chapel, an enhanced Bible minor, state of the art programs anchored to the truth of Scripture, and a vibrant campus community comprise the essence of the core. Strengthening the core requires not only focusing on what we do best, but also adding innovative new academic offerings that will continue to broaden and augment the means by which we maintain and strengthen our mission.
Cedarville University is a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth.
Cedarville University will be an exemplary Christian institution known for commitment to academic excellence, submission to biblical authority, passion for the Great Commission, and intentional discipleship that transforms lives for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement.
