Philosophy Statements

Philosophy of Education

Zion Christian University is dedicated to teaching the truth of God’s Word which renews the mind and transforms the heart. God’s word clearly states that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and it is from this biblical basis that Zion Christian University teaches all subjects. Education is not just teaching that influences the mind but it also influences the life of each student.

It has been said, “Doctrine will determine your destiny.” As such, Zion Christian University seeks to provide an excellent education that honors the Lord and leads students in the pathway of God and to a destiny that glorifies His holy name. Our fervent prayer is that God will keep this University true and faithful to His ways and His leading as well as use this University to prepare many to live a life that is devoted to His call.

Philosophy of Curriculum

One of the most important aspects of a college or university is its curriculum. Even more important than how we teach is what we teach. In Matthew 5:19, the Lord Jesus Christ expressed the importance of what we do and what we teach others to do. Teachers, ministers, and educators are held accountable for what they teach others. Therefore, by God’s grace, we must always seek to teach and preach the pure, unadulterated and undiluted Word of God.

The word “curriculum” in the Latin refers to a course that has a clearly defined finish line and goal. It literally means “to run a race.” Habakkuk 2:2 says, “… Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Through our curriculum we seek to place a vision and goal before our students of being transformed into the image of Christ and being filled with the knowledge of His Word and the power and anointing of His Holy Spirit. It is not enough to know the Word of God; we must put it into practice and reflect the beauty and nature of Christ in everything that we do. This is the goal of our curriculum.
