School of Christian Thought
In the School of Christian Thought, we think in terms of story, God’s story:
The great focus of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, is the story of God renewing His creation to be able to enjoy life with Him. It is within this broader narrative that our individual stories are caught up and transformed so that we live lives in thankful worship and obedience toward the One who created us.
At HBU, our School of Christian Thought exists to equip students with a rigorous biblical and theological education that trains students for whatever their calling may be: faithful discipleship in any vocation, an ongoing education, and ministry. We hope you join us as we follow God together.
For us, education is not just about information, but also transformation, and touching the mind and heart.
We are honest about our brokenness while walking on the path of restoration in Christ.
Christianity isn’t an individual pursuit; much of discipleship is just friendship.
We value the ways God has worked in culture in the past, and look for ways to impact culture today.
We don’t just read about great thinkers in history, we read their works.
The world is in need of leaders who draw others toward God’s story and who invest in others’ potential.
The School of Christian Thought offers many student organizations to expand the learning experience of our students and prepare them for their professional careers.
Various additional organizations exist within the University. Please check the list of Student Life Organizations for a comprehensive list.
The mission of the School of Christian Thought is to serve and equip the Church; to provide students with foundational knowledge in philosophy, theology, and apologetics through reading and engagement with the ideas and languages of classic and biblical texts; to challenge students to display sound reasoning, to communicate clearly, and to demonstrate effective research skills; and to foster both intellectual and spiritual growth as students and faculty alike seek to glorify God in all things.
