At Geneva, we believe that the Holy Bible is the true, inspired word of God. It is the foundation of all that is right and good, and it is the standard that we follow. Whether we are talking about matters of science or ethics, sports or sexuality, God’s word is the truth on which we stand.
We also welcome all people to our campus – just as Jesus Christ welcomed all people to His table. We don’t have a litmus test to determine if incoming students believe as we believe, and so people of many denominations and doctrines come to study at Geneva. Our conversations are honest, frank and often eye opening. Many people tell us they came to a saving faith in Jesus, trusting in Him as their Lord and Savior, and grew spiritually during their time at the college.

We require that faculty and staff are professing Christians. We know that those who influence students the most are those who teach them in the classroom, guide their studies, have positions of authority, and nurture them inside and outside of the classroom. They all have a faith in the Lord, and care about the development of the students’ minds, hearts and spirits.
We also believe it’s important to join together to focus on the Lord in prayer, song and study of the Word, so weekly Chapel is required. But nothing can take the place of a church home and a church family, so we encourage students to connect to a local church. We even host a "Cokes and Connections" event each fall and invite members of churches to come to campus to meet students, and we list churches and contact information on our website by denomination.
