Chapel - The Heartbeat of Cedarville

Chapel has long been considered the heartbeat of Cedarville’s campus. Every weekday at 10 a.m., students, faculty, and staff come together for a time of dynamic worship and powerful preaching. Lives are transformed as we spur one another toward Christ.

Why Christian College?

As you consider Cedarville, you’ll discover we are not “Christian” in name only. From vibrant daily chapels, professors who affirm the doctrinal statement annually, biblical integration in every course, a Bible minor built into all undergraduate programs, and a bold Gospel focus in everything we do, you’ll see that we stand unashamedly for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ.

We Believe in the Local Church — 3/14/2016

Dr. Thomas White is the President of Cedarville University. The text for his message is Matthew 16:18.
