Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote the cause of Christ by providing a distinctively Christian-traditional, liberal arts education that develops students spiritually, intellectually, morally, culturally, and socially.

Our purpose in both undergraduate and graduate programs is to produce Christian leaders who are knowledgeable, articulate, moral, dedicated to excellence, and committed to serving Jesus Christ as they learn to influence the world by applying biblical principles in their chosen field and daily life.

Our objectives relate to PCC’s mission and purpose to provide a distinctively Christian-traditional, liberal arts education. PCC desires that students will be academically and intellectually competent in their chosen fields of study, knowledgeable of the Bible, capable of rightly dividing the Word and truth of God, and equipped to take the gospel message to the world through testimonies in character and example. In keeping with its mission and purpose, PCC’s objective is that each student will meet the following learning outcomes.

Spiritual: From classes, chapel, and church services, the students will be able to

  • show a working knowledge of the Bible in line with the Articles of Faith
  • share the gospel of Christ with others and the world
  • explain biblical teaching regarding the God-ordained institutions of the home, church, and government
  • apply the principles, truths, and values of God’s Word in their chosen fields and daily lives

Intellectual: Through instruction and practical training from a biblical worldview, the students will be able to

  • employ a general education in the liberal arts (communication, mathematics, historical context, social science knowledge and interpretation)
  • demonstrate college-level knowledge in their chosen fields
  • apply knowledge in practical experiences in their chosen fields
  • enter further graduate or professional studies

Moral: Through a variety of ministry outlets, the students will be able to

  • exhibit a sensitivity to the spiritual needs of the world
  • display Christian character

Cultural and Social: With a wide range of scheduled events—required and optional—the students will be able to

  • cultivate an appreciation of fine arts (drama, literature, music, visual art) and social skills
  • exhibit their commitment to the Christian way of life through adherence to the Code of Conduct
  • demonstrate courtesy and kindness
  • serve the needs of others through voluntary ministry and service opportunities
