At Bethel, we’re a community—working together in Christ’s name so that we can transform our world.

Bethel University has been a leader and model in Christian higher education since 1871. For generations, our fusion of evangelical faith with top-ranked academics has transformed women and men, preparing them for unique callings in the kingdom of God.

With more than 100 academic programs in 2 colleges, a grad school, and a seminary, we're one of the most comprehensive, interdenominational Christian universities in the nation. Our main campus, in the heart of the Twin Cities metro, gives us quick access to service projects, internships, churches, ministry organizations, and tons of local entertainment.

Everything we do at Bethel is guided by our core values, rooted in Scripture. We are Christ-followers, character-builders, truth-seekers, learners, salt and light, reconcilers, and world-changers.

We are, above all, a community—serving and encouraging one another toward our individual potential. Working together in Christ’s name, we become personally transformed so that we can transform our world.
