Verity Institute helps you earn a fully-accredited bachelor’s degree from a Christian perspective, for a fraction of the cost, and in less than half the time of conventional college routes.
Verity’s 21-month program helps you earn a fully-accredited bachelor’s degree in less than half of the typical time. This efficient option saves years and money that you can invest in your life calling.
Pursue higher education on campus or from home using Verity’s distance learning program. High school students can even earn up to 36 college credits through the home-based Dual Enrollment program.
Our Indianapolis campus is home to a small, vibrant community of Christ-followers pursuing college degrees free from the compromises of traditional education. A culture built on relationships develops you into a leader who loves Jesus Christ and the Word of God.
At Verity, the Bible isn’t just another subject—our goal is to incorporate truth into every lesson we teach. However, you don’t just hear God’s Word—you practice communicating truth through biblical writing, speaking, and outreach. Every field,whether business, politics, or science, is seen as a ministry opportunity.
We believe in the one true God, existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal from all eternity, each with distinct personalities but of one essence.
We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God and is the sole, infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe that the universe and man were created by God in six literal, consecutive 24-hour days as recorded in the book of Genesis. We believe that the Scripture teaches a recent origin for the whole creation, which has existed approximately 4,000 years from creation to Christ.
We believe Adam was directly created in innocence and in the image of God and did not evolve from preexisting forms of life. By voluntary transgression, he fell; and thus the whole human race is now sinful by nature and practice and therefore under just condemnation to eternal separation from God.
We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, that He entered into the world through the virgin birth, and lived among us without sin as perfect Man and perfect God.
We believe Jesus Christ shed His blood on Calvary as a vicarious substitute for all sinners, was buried and rose again bodily, and ascended to the right hand of the Father, from whence He will personally return.
We believe people are justified by grace through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ without any mixture of works.
We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the sinner, regenerates, sanctifies, and indwells the believer; and fills and empowers the believer for effective service.
We believe in the priesthood of the believer and that God has made provision for each believer to be victorious by being led of the Spirit and not walking after the flesh.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—the just unto the resurrection of life eternal and the lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation.
We believe Satan is a living being and that hell is a place of eternal conscious punishment for him, his hosts, and all unbelievers.
We believe Scripture commands Christians to abstain from all forms of sexual immorality, pride, covetousness, compromise, and unbelief. God’s people are called to holy living as taught in the Bible.
We believe the Bible sets forth principles for Godly living and that if one learns and follows these principles, one will be able to detect, avoid, and refute false teachings and false concepts.
Dear Parents & Students,
As you consider college, you may be asking: “What should I do with my life? Who should I be?” It can be a lonely, confusing time, but thank you for taking these questions seriously. As the statistics show, college is a deciding point for students, when many are influenced to reject Christ and truth.
In contrast, we cultivate Verity Institute as a biblical discipleship program. However, every college is really discipleship: students are influenced by the professors, the curriculum, and the peers. Each factor has life-changing impact.
Consider this analogy: If I take a lump of wax and throw it into a raging fire, it will quickly melt and lose its intended form. However, if I hold the same wax in my hand, the warmth from my body will eventually mold it and also radically change its shape.
Oftentimes it is easier to recognize and avoid the “raging fires” in our higher education system: the atheistic professors, the deviant peers, the evolutionary textbooks. However, the subtle negative influences can be even more dangerous: the elevation of academic knowledge above Godly wisdom, the pressure to serve self rather than God, the influences to dishonor parents, and many others.
Therefore, at Verity, our purpose is to “Develop leaders who love Jesus Christ and the Word of God.” As we lay and strengthen these foundations, every area of life will be impacted for eternity!
Our students do earn their regionally-accredited bachelor’s degrees in less than 2 years and for a fraction of typical college costs, whether on campus or from home using our distance-learning program. However, the benefits we see at Verity far exceed a college degree: our students encounter Christ, see the power of God through prayer, grow as servants and leaders, develop life-long friendships, and learn to value God’s Word as the revelation of Christ. We enjoy excellent graduation rates and the “success” of our alumni, but we are most grateful for these other gifts from God.
Parents, thank you for the investments that you make in your children. You are not raising them to be like everyone else, and we want to help them continue this victorious leadership as they pursue God’s purposes for their lives. Please let us know how we can serve you.
God bless you!
Dr. Kevin D. McCray
