  • Mission
  • 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.
  • Our Objective
  • 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.
