As a companion to our book Already Compromised, this list of Christian colleges is provided by Answers in Genesis to offer you something of a “clearing house” of Christian colleges that indicate they take a very high view of Scripture—beginning with its very first verse. At the same time, AiG cannot guarantee that every professor and every course will take the same stand on Genesis and the authority of Scripture that we do. Therefore we strongly urge you to carefully research these colleges before entrusting them with the training of a young person.
The schools featured here have exhibited a strong dedication to the authority of Scripture (though their doctrinal distinctives may be different) as well as a focused methodology in the teaching of Genesis with regard to the origins of the universe, living things, and mankind. High regard for the inerrancy of God’s Word is dominant over evolutionism and other millions-of-years beliefs, which ultimately place man’s ideas over God’s historical record.
In every case, the president (or a designated official) of the school has affirmed the Statement of Faith of Answers in Genesis. Each college shares in the development of this website by participating financially in the site’s maintenance. But we caution: this is no guarantee that every professor and every course at a listed school will accept our Statement of Faith. Therefore, we strongly encourage parents and prospective students to speak personally with professors and ask very specific questions (such as those outlined in appendix D of Already Compromised). Because faculty and curricula can change, it is imperative that final consideration about the actual teaching of biblical authority at the school be evaluated by the student and parents.
This website can be an excellent tool to help you have a good starting point in the selection of a college, but it should not be your only guide. We maintain that the diligent and vigilant attitude of the Bereans (Acts 17:11) must be applied here—as well, of course, when examining teaching received in churches, Bible studies, Christian high schools, and other venues.
