Follow Christ, Lead the Way

Why Theology and Ministry at OCU?

Three things make OCU’s Theology and Ministry department unique:

  • Our commitment to Scripture. We believe that the Bible is God’s word—not merely a collection of human words—and that it is authoritative and without error in all that it means to say. For this reason, we study Scripture deeply so that we can proclaim it faithfully to the world.
  • Our passion for holiness. We believe that God not only calls believers to be holy; he also empowers us to be holy by his Holy Spirit who dwells in us. We stand in the Wesleyan-Arminian theological tradition, and while we welcome students from all Christian traditions, we have a distinctively Wesleyan optimism about the power of God’s grace to transform human lives.
  • Our heart for the church. We have a deep love for the church and see everything that we do as being in service to the church. Our faculty are not ivory-tower scholars but pastor-theologians who research, write, preach, and teach in order to prepare the next generation of leaders for the church.
