Students who grew closer in their walk with the Lord from intentional mentoring, daily chapels, and biblical integration in their coursework.

4 Reasons Why Teaching Creation at a Christian College Is Important

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Creation: In the BeginningWhen it comes to their science departments, most Christian universities and colleges either ignore the issue of creation and Genesis altogether, or they promote theistic evolution or some other harmonization of Genesis. There are only a handful of schools that believe that Genesis is historically accurate and forms a foundation for science, the Bible, and Christian education. In today's post, Dr. John Whitmore, Professor of Geology at Cedarville University, shares four reasons why Cedarville holds true to a biblical, literal six-day Creation, and why we always will.

Students Encouraged to Get Involved in a Local Church

Tuesday, March 8, 2022

ChurchCedarville University is privileged to care for the spiritual growth of some of the best university-aged students on our planet. We take this charge very seriously.

One of the elements in the spiritual growth dynamic here at Cedarville is seeing to it, as best we are able, that each student connects with a local church. The years of their academic training could leave them separated from any type of effective fellowship with the body of Christ, except for what takes place within the boundaries of our campus. Chapel is exciting and distinctive to a Cedarville education, but it does not take the place of the local church.

Read today's post to learn more about local churches that students call home away from home.
