Christian Studies Core

A group of North Central students talking.

All North Central students take the Christian Studies Core and graduate with a Christian Studies minor. Being a private Christian University, the 18-credit Christian Studies Core will give you a solid foundation of biblical content and theology for lifelong spiritual maturation so you’re prepared to lead, serve, and minister—wherever you’ve been called.

The Christian Studies Core will prepare you to:

  • Grasp the historical background and biblical content of both the Old and New Testament
  • Interpret biblical content
  • Understand and build a firm, orthodox and evangelical theological base, especially in those areas that are distinctive to our Pentecostal and charismatic tradition
  • Research specific Old and New Testament books in depth
  • Launch a lifelong learning strategy for biblical research applicable to self-study and/or graduate training
