Faith in the every day, in every place
At Calvin, you’ll dive into big ideas and tough issues in the classroom, in chapel, in floor Bible studies and in deep conversations with friends. You don’t have to go to chapel or pray or read your Bible, but just dip your toe in the Calvin community and you’ll find that opportunities to grow your faith are everywhere. You’ll be challenged to make your faith your own. Choose to participate, and you’ll build a way of life that gets you through any challenge you encounter.

What we believe
Behind Calvin’s mission of equipping students to be agents of renewal in the world is a set of deep beliefs tied to the Reformed tradition of historic Christianity.
- God and Creation
God, who is sovereign over all, created all things, and they were good. He gave human beings, made in His image, the responsibility of caring for this world.
Sin entered the world through humanity’s rebellion against God, tainting every aspect of creation. Nevertheless God graciously preserves the world, holding all things in His care.
- Christ and Redemption
In His saving grace, God kept His promises by sending Jesus Christ to redeem all things through His death and resurrection. Jesus calls all people to salvation through faith in Him alone.
- The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit continues God’s creative and restorative work in the world, gathering people from every tongue, tribe and nation into the body of Christ and empowering them for service.
- The Bible
The Bible is the authoritative, Spirit-breathed Word of God, fully reliable in leading believers to know God and to walk with Christ in newness of life.
