Soteria University

Soteria University is our adult education program that explores the Bible and Christianity on a deeper level.

Jesus gave his followers the mission to make disciples, and in order to make disciples, Jesus said we must teach people to observe all that he commanded. Thus, one aspect of discipleship is life-long, ongoing learning. No one will ever be able to say in this life, “I’ve learned to observe all that Jesus commanded.”

The goal of Soteria University isn’t just head knowledge; the goal of instruction is love (1 Timothy 1:5). Jesus summed up the whole Christian life like this: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength…and love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:30-31 CSB).

The goal of Soteria University is to help students love the Lord with all their mind, heart, and strength.
