Located at the edge of the Appalachian foothills in Greenville, S.C., Bob Jones University is a fundamental Christian university for students who desire a biblically faithful liberal arts education that fosters the development of Christlike character. Students come from all 50 states and more than 40 countries. BJU offers a wide variety of academic programs each based on a liberal arts core. BJU educates the whole person: preparing students how to excel intellectually and vocationally, teaching students how to live from a biblical perspective in every area of life and building up their faith and understanding of God’s Word.

Within the cultural and academic soil of liberal arts higher education, Bob Jones University exists to grow Christlike character that is scripturally disciplined, others-serving, God-loving, Christ-proclaiming and focused above.
God’s redemptive and restorative mission in the hearts of men is the base upon which the Christian worldview is rooted and is what compels the serious pursuit of Christlikeness in the believer. BJU’s objective is not only to produce pastor, missionaries, scientists, teachers, journalists, or lawyers, but to produce graduates who grasp the importance and eternal value of Christlike living and servant leadership.
I believe in the inspiration of the Bible (both the Old and the New Testaments); the creation of man by the direct act of God; the incarnation and virgin birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ; His identification as the Son of God; His vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross; the resurrection of His body from the tomb; His power to save men from sin; the new birth through the regeneration by the Holy Spirit; and the gift of eternal life by the grace of God.
