The King's University exists to provide university education that inspires and equips learners to bring renewal and reconciliation to every walk of life as followers of Jesus Christ, the Servant-King. To be widely known as a Christian university serving to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world.

The educational philosophy of The King's University is rooted in the historic Christian faith and seeks to work out concretely what the Christian faith means for a liberal arts education. We believe that all teaching and learning occurs within contexts of views of Life and society. The context for education at The King's University is a specifically Christian world-and-life view, meaning a view that is informed by the Bible, the authoritative Word of God as confessed by the early church, and in the creeds of the Protestant Reformation. From the Bible, we derive the following principles which provide the framework for education at The King's University:

  • Creation: that humanity and the entire world find their origin, meaning, and purpose in God the Creator and Jesus Christ the Redeemer.
  • Sin: that humanity, by its original disobedience, broke its relationship with God and caused God's curse on creation.
  • Redemption: that Christ, the Word Incarnate, is the Redeemer who restores the relationship between God and God's creation and who renews Life through the Holy Spirit.
  • Human Life: All of Life, including teaching and Learning, is service either to the God of the Scriptures or to a god of human invention.
  • Teaching and Learning: that teaching and Learning must proceed in the light of God's written Word and accordance with God's Creation order.
  • Teachers and Students: that teachers and students, as image-bearers of God, are, in mutual respect, to fulfill their calling to develop the earth and serve God and their neighbor in education.
