Olivet University is an institution of biblical higher education dedicated to training ministry-bound men and women as biblical scholars and leaders, and to equipping them with the practical skills to preach the Gospel effectively into and after the ‘network generation’ – thus priming them to revolutionize the world through Christian mission.
Our vision is born of God's enduring hope for a world that is "full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea" (Isaiah 11:9). The fulfillment of this vision inspires, orients, and defines the work of this institution.
Olivet University affirms the World Olivet Assembly (WOA) Statement of Faith.
Olivet University ascribes to the educational philosophy known as ‘faith first,’ which is articulated in the following University-wide doctrine:
Human knowledge as a whole exists and can only rightly be understood within the context of biblical truth, necessitating an approach to education and academic learning that values and thoroughly integrates the habits of scriptural study, reflection, and application across all fields and disciplines.
