The Bethel University experience is transformative.

Our graduates leave here mature Christ-followers, with an authentic faith that is the foundation for their life. 

We recognize the Creator’s thumbprint in every human discipline, from chemistry and calculus to history and the arts. We call upon His guidance at game time and mealtime. 

In short, spiritual life at Bethel is in and all around us. In this environment, every moment brings a new opportunity to grow in Christ and live out His world-changing gospel.

Deep Spiritual Formation

Worship

Arriving at Bethel, many undergrad students must examine the faith of their childhood to forge a new meaningful walk with God. There’s no better place to do this than within a supportive learning community.

Bethel seminary students cultivate deep spiritual foundations and leadership strength. Beyond the classroom, their time at Bethel is hands-on training for a fully realized Christian life.

For adult students in graduate and degree completion programs, Christian faith is not a requirement, although all programs are taught from a Christian worldview. It’s our hope that all Bethel students enjoy a rewarding professional life that takes responsibility for creation and serving others.

Spiritual Resources

The Office of Campus Ministries provides numerous opportunities and resources for the Bethel community.

Outreach and Service

At Bethel, we serve God by serving our neighbors, particularly those on the margins of society.
