Our Mission & Vision


Today the ongoing purpose of Cincinnati Christian University is to teach men and women to live by biblical principles and to equip and empower them with character, skills, insight, and vision to lead the church and to impact society for Christ.

We often express our mission with the following statement: “building Christian leaders to serve the church and shape the world.”

Cincinnati Christian University exists because:

  • Churches need faithful, creative, well-informed leaders to preach God’s Word and serve God’s people.
  • The workplace needs Christian leaders with high ethical standards.
  • Our city and our world need well-educated Christian citizens who can communicate God’s grace and truth interpersonally and cross-culturally.
  • Students need the opportunity to study under faithful, Bible-believing professors who will shape their worldview and motivate them to honor God in all their endeavors.

Our vision is expressed in the statement, “training thousands to impact millions.” We aspire to be a university that is spiritually faithful and dynamic, academically excellent, relationally healthy, culturally relevant, and engaged, expanding our impact for the glory of God.
