A life of faith can be challenging, but our community's strength stems from Jesus!

At Northwestern, we remain focused on God and His Word, which is at the center of our mission and all of our endeavors. The integration of faith and learning is woven through classes, residence halls, and all aspects of community life. Your peers, faculty, and staff are with you, whether you’re celebrating an achievement or when you need support during a school or life struggle.

Our commitment to you

Your faith and life in God is ultimately your responsibility to steward. Yet, at Northwestern, you will experience authentic Christian community committed to your spiritual formation and growth. When struggles come, we care well for each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. It is rare to receive this kind of spiritual support in a college setting.

How does Northwestern nurture faith?

We praise God daily at chapel, and worship and prayer are a priority. We serve others through outreach opportunities.
